Soft Top ?

OK...I just got my 05 and I need some advice.
The top goes up an down easy...except for getting those two buckles(behind the sun visors on the windshield) to snap on.
I get them almost there...but the last little bit before I get them snapped about kills me.
Are there any tricks to getting those things buckled or am I just a big pansy and need to hit the weights?
Thanks

Normal as far as I know, Mine is like that also. I haven't found any tricks except sitting in the Jeep and bracing against the seats while pushing forward and down with the clamps ready to slide in the hole.

Some tops are like that, some arent. nothin you can do

Try this though: With the rear quarter sail panel UNHOOKED, put tbe clip in the windshield. Now hook in the quarters and the rest of the top, then clamp down the windshield hooks. makes it a little easier

Thanks!
If everyone has the same problem I'm fine with it...if it's just me then I worry.
