Soft top question

When strapping soft top to back when going topless. Do you fold it nicely and use the straps or roll it like a tootsie roll?

Fold it. "nicely" might be too strong a word for what I do.

Mine goes into a "Z-fold". It looks like a Z would look, if you got really drunk and held a marker between your toes to write with

I watched some of the video that was posted. When I removed my top I didn't unclip a header. I pulled the tabs from under the front. The clips behind the visors didn't seem to remove. I have a new best top supertop the previous owner installed. And of course I got the jeep in winter so this is first time off and he didn't get to show me.

You did this correctly. The Supertop uses a different header that remains attached to the Jeep. The factory header remains attached to the fabric.

Thanks for reassuring me. I'm new at this whole jeep thing so I'll have lots of questions. You agree with the folding it ip and not Rollin it?

Sorry for the highjack

Geoff, I figure I nab ya on here

I just installed the SuperTop NX and love it. I still have the two piece soft door from my previous bestop. My ? Is... I know you can replace the upper soft doors on a factory soft top (I've seen the video) will the same skin replace an upper on the two piece soft door? One of my windows has a slice in it, but the doors still are in perfect condition.
