Did I do this correctly?

Folded back my roof for the first time, did I get it folded right?

No. Should form a "W" on the side when done correctly.

Push it back up enough to get the fabric out of the frame at the top. Push all fabric towards the back of the Jeep.

Owner's manual shows you how, btw. I think that little user's guide does as well.

OK, I have it back into the W but the instructions say to fold back the front section of the top. Is that the section closest to the door frame? Also, where do you attach the velcro straps to the frame?

It looks like you've got fabric pinched in the frame under the main bar in the picture. That's what I'm saying to pull back towards the back of the Jeep. Look at it from the inside: if anything is hanging down into the cab, it's not pulled back correctly.

I don't use the straps.

It's all wrong, you stopped half way. Soft tops are supposed to be taken off.

L'il buddy's sleeping, so I took a stroll to the garage. Here's what it should look like, with straps. I always put them on, ever since seeing one pop up in a crosswind.

Yup, that looks right.

I've stopped using my straps of local drives (under 40mph). I've gotten lazy.
