hey guys, just got my first soft top today, its a OEM top. Got it on perfect and i folded it down to go out on a drive. However even with it folded down it looks like its going to catch like a parachute in the back. Is there anything preventing this that im missing? If i keep pushing down on the top to lower it down into the back further it almost seems like its going to bend the tabs that go up by the front windows when they are pushed all the way back there. thanks
Thought the same thing when I drove with top down for the first time. On passing a Jeep dealership on the way home, I stopped in and asked. they said "ride on with a smile. Nothing is wrong.". Even douple checked it for me. Just fold it down accordian style and go.
That's the only way I ride topless. I'm not sure how NY is but in VA the weather is very unpredicatable, so I dont wana be caught without it. I've never had the parachute problem... I think you'll be fine riding like that!
read your owners manual. it tells you exactly how to put it down. when you fold it like they say in the manual, it will sit about 2" or so above the tub. the biggest part of securing it down is to wrap the straps that connect the front and rear bows around the bows when it's all folded down. the top will not move once you fold it down like you're supposed to. and it will last a lot longer too.
Can anyone tell me how the flux capacitor is used to facilitate time travel?
I put two bungee cords around it to keep it more secure, makes me feel better anyways
This is what I do. When folded down correctly, as Dabolt55 said, it sits nicely in the top. Mine sits that way probably 4 out of 5 times I fold it up.
I tie it up mostly for peace of mind. I rode once without tying it, and I spent more time looking in the mirror to see if it was flapping than I did looking forward, lol!
