Ok so I got my Rampage frameless soft top in the mail today and theres some issues with installation. I cant get the rear window to fit and there doesn't seem to be much stretch in the material. Granted it's 40 degrees out here so thats probably why its not stretching right? I was also thinking it could be my sound bar? It's the factory sound bar on a 2001 so if anyone has any idea of other troubles than the weather or can confirm I'd love you forever.
The fabric will relax after it's been installed a bit and taking it off and on gets easier. However, 40 degree weather is a no go for first time install. Take the top inside and let it get warmed up and install it in a garage (preferably heated).

As in boltin the header bar on or actually putting the front of the top on? If its putting the top on into the bar i also had trouble with this. Attach the door surrounds first than getting the front in will be easy.
I also had a little trouble with the header piece. But make sure when you get it in the header bar you pull back on it to take the slack out or it can come off goin down the road. I now wish I would have gotten the best top trektop nx
i installed one on my lj when it was 55 outside, mistake. when it warms up and conforms to the jeep its simple and easy

since the biggest issue is the back window best way to do it is to zip up the side windows only a little like they say than zip up the entire back window. After than use all your man strength to put the side windows it. Worked well for me
