Smile Sunrider Soft Top

First of all I'm a new jeep owner. Have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler with the sunrider soft top. My question is "can you put the top half way back vice all the way bac. Dealer said no but I have seen an instructional video on you tube where they did it. Any help appreciated.

If your talking about putting the sunrider back
It only folds one way

I've seen the same video. I believe you can, though I have not done it myself. I have felt up there and there are the sliding plastic sleeves that cover the joints like in the video. You should be able to unclip the header and slide those sleeves forward and fold back "sunroof" style.

Yes, that is the sunrider feature.
The owners manual or users guide will explain it.
