You can get instructions from the manufacturer's website. The Bestop site has a video, and I imagine there are videos on YouTube as well. If you don't know what brand top you have, it's usually stamped into the rear window.

The Haynes manual has info. Picked an old one up on E-Bay for under $10 to the door.

X2. I thought you New Englanders were a lot tougher than that. A warm parka and a flask of John Daniels is your best solution.

Figured it out. Was missing some brackets. I prefer Makers Mark over Jack Daniels

Originally from Nebraska. We prefer Booker bourbon. At -20°F we put half in the tank, take a shot for ourselves and drive around in our underwear with the top down. Glad you figured out the issue.

Well it is Jack Daniels down here too but for those of us that have known him intimately he prefers to be called John.

Glad you figured it out. I love JD but have been curious about Makers Mark, I'll have to try it

A waste of good bourbon IMO, but I love the concept! We don't get down to -20 in CA, we can drive around in our underwear pretty near all year 'round!

Don't believe you! You need pictures to prove that.

Makers definitely worth a try. As for the driving around in underwear I'll leave that to the true northerners I'm originally from Florida

Ha ha, believe me, no one would want to see me in my underwear. Now the young girls who drive around in their bikinis, that's pretty much the same as underwear.
