:( Freedom Top out of storage ;(

Hey! Now that the weather will start to change, for those of you with the Freedom Top, what sorts of things do you do to your Jeep other than taking it out for one last long jaunt before putting the top back on?

I mean, other than cleaning the tub top and making sure that it is lined up before putting in the bolts or quick release tabs, are there any other items worth noting? This is the first Jeep I had with a hard top and am not used to anything other than the softie.

Not a lot.

Hoes it down. I use soapy water with a little bit of bleach on the white inside.
Look at all the seals, I apply a light coat of WD or whatever I have laying around to soften them up. If any off the rubber shows some cracking I put a little bit of silicone to repair.
Pretty much it, put back on the jeep bolt down. Take a ride to the car wash, good way to check for leaking, better to fix now then wait.
Lastly cry-summers over
