How do I remove my soft top?

I have a 91 w/soft top. I have no idea what kind of top it is, It does have a frame that runs behind the rollbar. I's removed the back palastic window th other day. I don't have a manual etc. and never owned a jeep before I really don't want to screw the top up becaues I'm clueless.

Mine is a 94 YJ. It has an aftermarket soft top on it and it is pretty easy to remove. Does yours have velcro that attaches it to the uprights that are located behind the driver's and passenger's seats?

Tell your girlfriend/wife you cheated on her in your Jeep with that hottie next door.
Chances are, your top will be off in minutes....

Dont try to put it back on though, it will never happen...

Can you take a couple of pictures of it at the driver's side by the rear of the door opening and at the top of the door where the top attaches to the windshield frame?

The left and right windows zip off and then slide the bottom and front edge out of the retainer rails. Then take the two rear frame bars that ate located by the role bar and pull down on them in the middle, this will take the tension off the top portion then start by taking the right and left corners out from the retainer rail take the snaps off the middle and rear frames then unsnap the top above the driver and passenger doors then unsnap the two front corners above the windshield then just slide the top front edge out of the front windshield retainer the whole top should come right off the frame should still be standing you can then fold that up or remove completely
Look on Bestop's web site for more help and to help identify what type of top you have

Here, I have a smittybilt soft top, I was asking the same question when I wanted to go topless and several folks here helped me take it all off lol

1.-U have to take off the side windows and unzip or take off the rear one as well.

2.-Take the rear corners off the retaining rail thingys.

3.-See the little rusted rings here on top n this pic?

There is one on the right and one in the left. Pull that ring, it's attached to a pin that keeps the folding arms straight.

4.-After u pull the pins out, that bar can fold and will loosen up the whole top .

5.-Now u can go to the front and just pull the front of top out of the windshield channel, it should b already loose cause there's no more tension.

6.-Pull/fold the top back (I took it off and kept it inside in my apt.

7.- Then just kinda follow the rythm of the folding mechanism on the frame and stow it.

Hopefully this was helpful
