Issue with soft top - please help

I recently bought my dream car, a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport. It came with both the hard top and soft top, but the soft top has never been used. Now the weather is turning nice I have removed hard top and am trying to install soft top with little success. The back of the roof sits too high for me to be able to hook the roof into the body. I can't pull it down anymore and it is nowhere near reaching. I have watched videos on Youtube and appear to be doing everything right.

It is possible the bows are bent or it's the wrong roof? I am stuck!

Thank you

Cool Well...

typically you can attach the front before you adjust the tension on the rest of the unit with the rear side rail adjustments. Not being there...hard to say what you are doin' wrong...but that's my assumption. Ron
