I have a 2 door, but here is how I put mine on. I lay the top flap on and loosely attach the straps, then tuck the corners into the body. Then I reach under and wrap the bottom section around the top and push it upward. Then I grab the leading edge from the top so that I can start the zipper.

If you have a 4 door, make sure you have it folded correctly from the start. I see many 4 doors with the top folder so that the frame arms are on the same angle as the sport cage. Those arms should lie flat on the tub.

If you're not folding the top correctly, this video will show how. It's one of the best I've seen for expalining exactly how to do it.

Is there any chance you have the boot for a two door?

Daggo66, thanks for the video - I think the trouble was in the fold, and I wasn't getting a tight enough fold...the video really helps, thank you.

Cavsvet74, oh that it was the case - I checked the part number on the peice and unless there is a wrong tag on the piece, it is the right one...

I'll try a neater fold of the top and see if that helps.

Thank you both!

My soft-top boot was initially a VERY tight fit. It was so bad that I actually managed to rip out a few stitches on it the first time I tried to install it. After sewing up my damage & then leaving it on the Jeep in the sun for a couple days, though, it has since stretched out & fits just about perfectly now:



[edit] FWIW, mine is a Rampage model 960435.
