Noobish question(s)

Ok heres my problem, I'm new into the wrangler world and I'm clueless about soft tops especially mine. I know its a bestop and its suppose to be brand new and looks it when clean. So rambling done how to I identify this top and more importantly take it down for nice days? I thought the previous owner called it like a sun downer sun rider our sun sh!t like that lol the machin two windows have zippers and there is a frame and I remember him saying something about un latching something by the back windows to make the top fold our something, I can get better pictures of top if needed but I did find this info on back window

Basically, unzip your side panels, unclip the top from the door surrounds, and unclip the 2 metal clips by the sun visors. Here is a better explanation though.

Ok so I have a supertop, just got off the phone with bestops. So I watched video and its basically the same. Also I have a chance to pick up hard top tomorrow from a cj7 he thinks, for $200 its there anything different from cj5 and cj7 hard tops? And will my half doors fit or do I have to buy full doors also? And how much work is it to go from the super top too the hard top?

For 200 bucks, especially if all the glass is in tact, it is worth that.

He said there is minor rust on back window hatch, does that look like correct top? And will my doors fit and how hard to go from supertop to hard top?

I also recently got a wrangler and put a new to me hard top on for the 1st time. it took me about 30 minutes to pull the soft top and install the hard top. I wasn't smart enough to google how to do it 1st so I was winging it. As far as using your soft top doors, mine don't have the right shape to fit my hard top so I couldn't tell you.

from the looks of your doors, they won't work with the hard top.....you need the ones with the rounded upper corners......not to expensive to buy new uppers for your half doors though...
