Old guy needs help with 4-door soft top install

Hi fellow Jeepers,
I just turned 70...ancient!! I bought a 4-door ruby last year with both a soft and hardtop. I was able to get the soft top off and install the hard top (with help from a neighbor) but the nice weather is approaching and my wife is bugging me to get the soft top back on. Anybody out there with wrangler 4-door experience willing to drive up to Estes Park, CO to help me with the install?

Maybe lunch, beer, or a few bucks??

I greatly would appreciate any assistance.

Thanks,

estesmtnman

I'd be right on up if I weren't 1300 miles away in Ky. Good luck, and if you have any questions or need specific pics just let me know!

Maybe build a hoist in your garage so you can do it without needing another?
May not solve this immediate need. But can eliminate the future problem.

Good luck, if I wasn't so far away in would be there to help too.

How far is your dealer away from you? I know my sales guy said he would come out to help me first time. It is tuff the first time. It took me 2 hours on my 2010 and my 2013 premium top is even tuffer.

I can give you a hand. I'm on the north side of Denver, and it's a mighty nice day for a drice to Estes Park.

Do you have all the tools you need or should I bring mine? Is the hard top still on?

Can you do this around 11 this AM?

Soft top install help

A huge thank you for the response from North Denver. Colorado is very special and for being a Jeep owner it is incredible.

you should try posting on your local forum:

Colorado Jeep Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum

my brother lives near there, but he cracked my tail light putting the hard top back second day I owned it, so I won't be asking him to help you
