Soft top

Just got a 08 wrangler unlimited. I just notice when I put the top up there is a gap between the roof and the window. Is this normal or I'm doing something wrong.

That is not normal. Are your top rails locked into the latch correctly?

Have you rolled the door sill retainers into the door sill? If you have an 08, then you have those instead of the cable top

I'll check. All of these is new to me. I traded my vw for the jeep. So I'm trying to learn about the top.

not normal, make sure the cross bar is set in place correctly

jkjeeper06 - I have an 08 and im just curious as to what the difference in the cable top is?

The bar is sitting on top of a plastic tab. I got the bar to sit next to it but the whole roof was to far forward. I'll take a picture of it when I go to lunch.

Something's not lining up properly...obviously. I would recommend u take it completely off and start again. Not much help I know, but take your time and try to understand how it works.

My 08 sometime the cross bar won't go in place and I have to manually reach under and put it in place kind of looks like what your showing in the picture but I can't tell for sure

I agree with everyone else. Take the top back open and start again because it is not laying down far enough. My 07 top always had a little bump at the velcro there, but nothing that high.

Agreed. I would recommend watching the videos on Jeep.com. I watched them before folding it down the first time. Also its easier to get back on after its been in the sun all day.
