I can't help with the other stuff as I have yet to install my soft top...still waiting on those brackets.
Would you happen to know the part numbers for these brackets?

Here is a nice video showing the same thing - might also be helpful.

Does anyone have the PDF write up on this? It's no longer available. I'm installing my soft top this weekend. Thanks

Doesn't show up in my iPhone, I'm using the app. I guess not everything is viewable from mobile devices. I haven't used my lap top in months.

In 2013 they have the premium top plus I believe the spring thing that helps fold the soft top back was improved.

2009 JKU soft top install

. I'm trying to install my top. I can't get the tabs to go in the surrounds. Well one fits but the other 3 no way. It appears my front passenger looks flush while the others have a ridge to stretch over and it can't make it. I recently bought new surrounds ans since I'm on the road will have t wait and see.. my question did Jeep change surrounds from 2009 to now?
This has to be my problem.jj

2012 Factory top to 2015

Anyone know if the top for a 2012 will work for a 2015 2dr? Any parts I should be looking for? Top was never installed on the sellers Jeep. Selling for $400 and its a long drive so don't want to waste the time if it isn't going to fit.
