I did mine the other day, its a smittybilt though.
Anyway, start at the back, roll the back window up, & snap it.
Take out your rear side windows, lay them on the back seat for now.
take out your door windows, set them to the side also.
Go to the back, and pull the rear corners out and fold them up over the top on each side.
Go to the front doors, gently un-snap the snaps. I say gently because 3 of mine broke off the other day, and now I'm pissed because it will vibrate like hell on the highway and piss me off.
Slide back the little plastic "lock/unlock" tabs at the front corners.
From there, pull out the front tab from the track over the windshield.
Now, go to the rear side windows, above them will be the "spreader bars", there will be a black coupler in the middle of them, pull the rear piece back and you will see the joint.
From there, give your thick top frame bars a tug and start moving them. They will start folding and you will be able to see how it is going to go.
Before you fold it too much, fold the front back onto the rest of the top, once you get it going down you will want to wrap it underneath the back piece and pull it through towards the seat. That way, when you drive on the highway, it doesn't flap around and become airborne. You will also want to tuck the rear corner pieces in the same way, and you can also fold the rear side windows up in there.
Then start folding the frame back all the way, and it will lay down.
There should be straps on each side that you will wrap over the sides of the frame and they will tuck into the channel that would normally hold the front of the rear side windows.
If you do not have these straps, make some, otherwise your top will rattle and bounce around and it will get air under it and start raising up on the highway.
I hope this helps.
I'll do a write up with pictures tomorrow.
