Soft top

Bought a 2000 tj with a soft top and a hard top, but no instructions on how to swap them out, this is my first jeep and I don't have a clue, winter is coming and the hard top is in the garage.. The soft top is a bestop brand. Anyone have any information or web links that would help. Thanks

Remove the four screws holding it onto the brackets on the roll bar, pull it off, fold it up and store it. Easy!

And putting the hard top on, just as easy. Have a buddy as it it not light, set it in place so that the "clips" on the hard top secure in the same way the "clips" on the soft top did. Then its just a matter of securing the rest with 6 bolts along the bottom where the sides rest on the jeep. Some people use some thin weatherstripping between the top and the jeep but I have never had any issues.
