Question take your top off :)

bought mine last saturday (4 days ago) and have not taken the top off yet, watch a bunch of Youtube videos though

just wondering, how fast can you un-top your Wrangler ? do you do it by yourself ? and lastly, how fast can you put it back up.


(ps. an acquaintances told me he sprays something on the soft windows of his daughters Jeep to keep them flexible and clear, forget the name.. maybe that's only needed while storing ?)

thanks!

People are going to be all over the place on this. Since I run bikini and duster and jammer in the summer time---I can "take my top off" at a long stop light-- a short light if I have a passenger who knows what is going on.

With the old factory soft top--less than 10 min up or down without hurryin' --like with rain.

Rain made me faster.

I have factory sift top, 2001. I don't fully take off, just roll back behind rear seat. I keep side windows off all summer, no exceptions. But taking top off is maybe 3-4 minutes. And same putting back on.

Not counting windows I can put my SuperTop up/down in about the same time (less than a couple minutes).

I can usually get my hardtop off and no bolt header and safaritop on by my self in about 20 minutes.

The hoist-a-top is a,great investment if you have a hard top. The safari top always gives me grief with the plastic header that goes into the non bolt on metal piece. But it is,do-able solo that is if you aren't referring to soft tops only which I may have missed considering most of the responses are from ST owners.

@arcountryboy, darn... that's quick.

@Hammerwalk, both soft tops and hard tops, although my Jeep only has a soft top.

for some reason i cant edit my post, but I meant to put that I have the bolt on header, not the "non bolt on" which is a grammatical error either way on my part all around but i believe you get the point.

10 mins up 10 mins down. Very easy but the zippers may give you a hard time.

I can take both front panels off my '11 hard top in less than two minutes. About three or four putting them back on.

since some of my zippers are caked with mud it takes a while to get my back and side windows out, ive already ruined one zipper lol..but if they are already out, about a minute to fold it back and 2 or 3 to fold it back up
