How difficult is it to install a soft top?

So it looks like I'm getting a new Sun Rider soft top tomorrow for my 2 door JK. I have the option to pay the dealer to install it or do it my self and save a few hundred bucks. How hard is it to install one of these by your self? Has anyone done this on their own? I can't see that it would be to hard but I really have no idea. Your help and answers could save me some $$$

thanks-

Yes. My jeep actually had a soft top on it when I bought it for a day and then the dealer switched it over to the hard top at my request that afternoon. Its a complete Sunrider soft top (factory stock) that comes on the JK's.
