When you drop it down, the canvas will catch on the roll bars. I don't have a picture handy, but that's probably what's happening. Here's what I do:
1. Drop the top all the way down and let if fall as it naturally wants to. It will most likely catch on the roll bars about 8" from where the bars meet the metal side/back of the body.
2. Lift up the very top piece (this is the bar that buckles to the top of the windshield) and reverse the fold that is just under it so it points out.
3. Then lift up the next "layer" and do the same.
4. Continue, alternating in/out and it should lay flat on the metal body of the jeep.
I found that every 10" (or so) there is a bend point along the side of the top, which allows for the the top to alternate in/out like an accordian. For some reason, when you just drop the top it starts in the wrong pattern and you have to reverse the pattern. That's what I found on mine anyway.
My top is up right now or I'd get pics for you. Hope this helps!
