for me it wasnt getting it down, it was getting it back up. It took me a minute to get the clips above the doors on both sides to line up and lock in.

The hardtop is great here in Cleveland during the winter but terribly annoying in summer. The weather changes constantly and like others have said, once its off its off. I'm picking up a soft top to use for summers so I'm able to put it up and down without having to leave it behind like the hard top. But in the winter I will put the hard top back on. If I lived further south I'd sell the hardtop but I still have a need for it here for at least a few months out of the year.

Liking mine so far. Not liking how easily it scratches. Look at it the wrong way and it's scratched.

For sure, the way it has been raining in IL, taking the hardtop on and off is a pain when doing it all the time. A soft is more versatile for "might rain" days.

Fully agree, but I confess, I have yet to master the 2 minute up/down drill.

I have the dual tops and I must admit, I'm very happy with the new "premium" soft top. It is way better than the one on my TJ. It's a PITA to put up, but is very quiet and doesn't flap like my old one did.

I like mine. I have no problems with it. It's all in how you fold it. Do it correctly and it's a breeze. I like it so much Im selling my hard top..
When life hands you lemons. Sell enough lemonade to buy a Jeep!

I got an hard top for winter recently, never tried it yet, I love my soft top, and it will stay until they forecast snow.

Usually takes me 5 minutes to put it down and in between 5 and 10 to put it back up alone. Don't know what I was doing wrong yesterday, but it took me a good 15 to 20 minutes to put it back up.
