Anyone provide a few more tips on soft tops? This spring i plan on using mine for the first time as i bought my 01 last summer and decided to just keep the hard top on since it was the end of that season anyway. I have a friend down the street who owns a 4door jk who has abit of experience with them. But my issue is about them being stored outside in a wooden shed in cold climates. I heard that putting in the cloth and windows part inside a few days before installing will make life easier? Less stress on the material?
Vinyl is definitely softer & easier to work with/stretch into place when it's warm. Even setting it in the sun for a while will help. Make sure too not to latch the rear corners into the tub before getting the front clips (hooks) inserted into their slots in the windshield frame. Insert the front hooks into their slots without closing the latch. Next insert the rear corners of the top into the rail on the tub. Then latch the front clamps.
