A question for Rampage soft-top owners...

I don't love the factory soft-top but do like how easy it is to put the top up and down quickly. For those of you with the Rampage do you find it just as easy? I'm sure going all down is a breeze but I'm curious about going back up. I'm talking totally topless as safari makes me feel like I'm just in a car with the windows down. Thanks!

I asked the same question on another forum. I was told it's pretty easy to take down, but tough to store if you want to take it with you..

How about how hard it is to put back up again? Thanks!

IMO the Rampage Frameless top is much easier to take down and put back up than my stock one was. I rarely take the whole top off because there is a zipper pouch in the roof to store the windows. I also like having the roof above me to keep the sun out.

I can take the windows off and have them stored in less than 5 minutes.

It is also less than 5 minutes to re-install them. Very easy.

Appreciate the feedback but really want to know how difficult it is to put up from complete topless. I prefer to take the top completely off instead of just safari. Thanks!

To put the top up you would clip the front end into the windshield bar, then do the same with the front sides onto the door surrounds. Next you tie the straps from the bottom layer of the top onto the upper rear seatbelt mounts, zip on the windows, then secure the final straps hanging down to the tub. Really easy I'm just not the greatest at explaining things. If you do take the whole top down I can see storage being an issue.

Appreciate it. I was afraid it would be a worse option for my needs than the stock top. Problem with the stock top with my setup is my rack. I have to take my rack off to get the stock frame up and down. Guess my best option is to replace my rack. Kinda figured...thanks!
