Mine never goes down right unless its 100 degrees out and the sun was beating on it all day. I never get it folded the right way.

There was...

Jeep had a video for new owners for the TJ from 2001 - 2003 that was Great.

It was given to all owners who took deliver during those model years.

I can never get that #@#A$# thing nice and neat let alone figure out how the heck you get one of those nice neat covers over it. Those two plastic things that snap into the surrounds mess me up every time.
Somebody ought to rip and put that jeep instruction video somewhere, do an avi or mpg and stick it on bitorrent or something.

Speaking of rip, you should see my top where them damn plastics thingies are. They always fall the wrong way.

Okay See if I can do this as simple as possible. Take off the back window and side windows. Unlatch the front clips and side "plastic things". Flip the two rear sails onto the top of the top. fold the top back like normal but keep everything in between the bows so that the bows will lay on top of each other when down. Tuck all of the top material inbetween the bows as you fold it down. The entire top and bows should mostly rest within the tub, the header bar might stick up an inch or so but it will look nice and neat. As for the side things the folding, fold them against each other and make sure both sides are pointing towards each other, if they are pointed out, forward or backwards, you will run the risk of bending the plastic permanently thus creating leaks. Which nobody likes. Any other questions PM me.
