remove the windows (front and back) un-latch the latches on the windshield and push it back!

haha ya what he said ^^^^

if its confusing i bet theres tutorials online check youtube and stuff. just look around and unscrew everything that connects the top to the car (if you wanna take the top all the way off, not just fold it down)

it is tucked FIRMLY above the doors too, similar to the lower edge on the rear windows. i will run my fingers through there pull those out before the top goes anywhere.

i have an aftermarket best top though, not sure if that is different.

here are the steps, one, take off the rear wondows, and roll up or take off the back window
2. pull out the strips that are above the doors
3. flip down visors and swing out, there will be two latches behind them, undo these latches,
4. fold top back to rear of jeep
5. dont push it shouold go easily, a common thing to get stuck are two black straps on the roll bar, if it goes hard just look undr and unhook the straps from the roll bar
6. make sure the drip rails that were above the doors make a <on the right and a > on the left (flat and not sticking out)

and lasty make sure to put the top back up before it gets below like 40-50 because it s REALLY hard to get it back on then

adn lastly if you ahve half doors, the just grab the door/window upper part and pull up

Ok that's easy enough. I had a pretty good idea but with my luck i'd have the roll cage layin on the driveway and the top stll on the jeep.
