@jludave From the get go talk here it was assembled and then lifted and bolted onto the JL. Read this post and watch the video. In that post I commented positively on the install video. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/fo...w-jeep®-wrangler-jl-is-here.14932/post-453491Bestop changed their instructions to now have everything assembled before install. The original instructions called for the door rails to be installed on the vehicle first. So, yes, this is the "new" method per Bestop, regardless of whether you chose to install this way before anyone else.
