open the glove box and remove the strap holding it on then pull the #4 fuse. it should be the bottom right fuse then you should be good. just know that is disables the chime if you leave your lights on.

Pull that fuse out. It is behind the glove box.

remove the glove compartment door and you will see a fuse panel behind it. Pull fuse #4 and you will shut off the dome light. ( also the headlight warning chime so watch out for that)

it is in the fuse panel behind your glove box. Even with the fuse out you can still turn your dome light on manually.

I just disconnected the switch at the door, that way you can still turn the lights on if you need them

It's funny. I was a doorless noob this past weekend and had the very same question. Came here and found the same answer (# 4 fuse), and I was off and running. Don't you love this site? And don't you love the doorless ride? The only thing I missed were my mirrors.

The only tip/trick that works 100% of the time is to keep it off

To actually answer your question, sorry I wouldn't know, I have a soft top myself. Although I found a ton of videos on YouTube that helped if you're willing to search around some..

Sometimes the rubber seal that keeps the air/water out gets twisted up a little bit, just try taking it off and carefully placing it back on being mindful about the rubber seal. Hope that works for you. Also was this hard top Ur using on this jeep before?

So take that whole clip mechanism off? And yes. Same hardtop. PO claimed to never take it off so it was the first time. Still learning. Lol.

Speaking of had tops... Mine has been sitting on the deck ever since I got my TJ back in July.
When I removed it, some of the gasket material that's on the bottom of the top got stuck to the tub.
I can scrape off that gasket residue, but should I put new material on the hard top?

Don't use insulation foam strip you get at the hardware store such as Frost King. It will stick and tear. (tried it twice). The Mopar kit costs about 30.00. What I found is RV and camper seal. You can get it at Auto Zone and elsewhere. It is very dense foam with a fiber covering that will not stick to the tub. I've had it on for 3 years.

No, when I put my hardtop on I had to take it off and put it back on because the rubber seal was all bent up and air/water was getting in. I remember when putting it on that first time it was very difficult but when I took it off and put it back on, being mindful of the rubber seal, it went on much easier.
