New in South Florida

I've wanted my OWN Jeep for so many years. My husband always had the Jeep...I got stuck with the "family car". Well, those days are over. Kids are off to college and beyond and it's MY turn for the jeep. I've been enjoying my "Ruby" for over a year now. BUT for the first time today, decided to throw back the factory soft top and take in some of the great Florida sun. Don't know WHY i took so long to get to that, except I was ....well ok...I admit ....I didn't want my interior getting wet. ANYway, Today I did, no problem throwing it back, but putting it UP, turned out to be pretty stiff. Had a HELLUVA time getting the "front flap" to meet up with the windshield. Finally gave a tug and it snapped into place nicely. All this to say....that's how I found the forum, see if anyone else had run into the problem? Will this loosen up with use? I hope so 'cuz I intend to throw that top back more often.

Thanks for the warm welcome, and a place to learn the ups and downs about our beloved Jeeps.
