Arrrrrgh! Can't find decent instructions for assembly of soft top hardware.

Have the Mopar instructions which are pretty weak at best... Does anyone have a video or link to instructions for assembling the frame on my new Mopar Sunrider? Already suffering from huge disappointment due to poor QC on the hardware, rear bow is lacking holes for the fabric strap on one side and one side bow that goes into the rear the holes are drilled in the wrong place, so it kind of sticks out at an impossible angle... Have new ones on order, hopefully they'll get here soon....

I've searched google and youtube and Quadratecs instructions, but they are not what I need. I know how to raise and lower the thing, I need to know how to put together the frame and header...

Thanks guys and girls...

Did you try Geoff@Bestop? If I were you I'd ask him to send Britta over to help.

Thanks Tom, but she's not allowed at my house.... Hubby would want to keep her!

I have a feeling Bestop won't be much help since when I called to find out if a non sunrider was an option on my '07 the girl I spoke with insisted that it wasn't.... and obviously it was, since I have one, and it says so right on my build sheet....

There's a big gap here between aftermarket, where I, Britta and customer support work, and OE Suppliers. The whole point with being an OE supplier is that you sell it to them cheap, and they take care of the marketing and support.

The closest thing we have is a Replace-A-Top install on a TJ. I've never seen or produced anything for installing a factory top on a JK.

yeh you wont find much on assembly of the hardware that isnt part of the install... if you want you could probably get pics of specific areas of the top from people on the board posted up here to help you figure it out but thats all that i could promise you.

I may have to make my own I guess.... It won't be pretty, and there will probably be bad words involved....

Can you call your local JEEP dealer and see if they have anything?

When they installed my Bikini top, they forgot to throw the directions in my Jeep when they were done so I could keep it. I called them about a week later and the shop guys had tons of instructions and made me a copy.

I have the mopar instructions, but they aren't terribly helpful... I'll manage with them once I get in the right parts... Misdrilled and undrilled bows are slowing down our progress...

Completely unrelated...

But I must say... Ageless is looking pretty hot in his Daisy Dukes in your avatar pic.
