also couldnt get doors off?
yeah these all seem like dumb things..but i just got it couple days ago and am 18 and dont know the tricks
Were you trying to take it off or just putting it down? There are a few videos online that will show you the proper sequence. As Norby said above, do not attach the sail panels to the rear of the tub until you have those front latches hooked. There are also two straps that run from your first bow to the rear bow, make sure that they are not twisted. I don't think that the cold is an issue for you, that usually only affects a top that has been left folded or off for a period of time or a new top.

You can lower the top alone.... trust me. Remove the windows first, all 3, then unlatch it at the header, undo the rear sail panels, flip them up on to the top, start in front and lift/lower it, folding and tucking in the back as it comes down. You'll have to walk around the Jeep a bunch to unbind things, but you can do it. I'm 5'5" and about a buck soaking wet, if I can do it, I'm sure you can... Take your time and as mentioned, watch a video or two first,so you know what you're doing... Good luck!
As said above but said a little differently here, never attach the rear corners first before latching the front of the top to the windshield. You can't stretch the top enough to engage the front latches once the rear is attached to the tub. But once the front is latched, or at after simply slipping the hooks into the windshield slots without actually closing the latches, you can stretch the top enough from each rear corner to attach the corners individually to the tub.
