how to remove the soft top from dual top group

Hi, just registered to the group, I got a 2013 Rubicon last week, it comes with a dual top group, which means a folded soft top is contained under the hard top. I want to remove the soft top off for storage reasons, but do not know how, coul anyone teach me or, showing some pictures will be even more helpful!

ps: by removing, I mean take the soft top off from the vehicle, not just to fold it. all the youtube video only teaches how to fold it.

Grab a buddy unbolt the hardtop 6 on bottom 2 on top, unbolt the brackets 4 bolts leave the torx and bracket in roll bar, lift back of hardtop up and slide out.

You need to remove it

1 from the roll bar bracket
2. unbolt the hard top
3. lift the hard top
4. slip the soft top and frame out the back

There are 2 bolts on each side of the roll bar.

What else can I help try to explain? The soft top has 4 bolts on each bracket. 2 hold the bracket to the roll bar, 2 hold the soft top to the bracket. That is the part that gets unbolted. There is a little notch in that bracket that the soft top rests on lift straight up and it will then be able to slide out. Give me a few and I will see if I can find Blasteks awsome thread as well.

You won't find the specific video for this. There is none
Remove hard top per previous instructions
Look for the brackets that hold soft top frame to roll bar
Remove the four torx screws on the brackets ( 2 per bracket)
Lift the frame out if the jeep
It is simple and fast if you have a second set of hands to help.
