You are actually suppose to remove both tops after you bought it to prevent damage to the soft top. It is just set up that way from the factory for ease of delivery to the customer. All you have to do is remove the hex screws from the body tub, unplug the rear wiring harness for the wiper and flip the front lockdown tabs in the front for the hard top. As far as the soft top just unscrew the hex screws from the roll bars to remove it if you are wanting to put the hard top back on. Hope that helps.
