Removing my top - Help?

I have a 2013 jeep wrangler sport - 2 door

I am trying to take off my Freedom hard top just so i can remove my "Sun Rider"? ( it was equipped when i bought it i guess for shipping reasons. I just want to take it out so i can have room in my back - Anyone know where i can find detailed instructions on taking it on / off? My manual doesn't really explain it so i was just wondering .

Unplug the wiper plug and wipe hose on the back drivers side corner, remove your hard top freedom panels, remove the 6 torque screws (T40s I believe) down each side of the hard top along the rear tub and remove the 2 torque screws above the driver and passenger doors (1 on each side).....then lift!

Just took mine off this morning. If you look under the mat in back, there are holes to put the bolts from the roof so you don't lose them. The wiper hose is a bit of a game to get off. Look closely at it and you will see the connector is oval shaped. The game is to pinch it so that it becomes round and then pull it off. A pair of pliers helps.
