Okay, I know this is going to make me sound ignorant. Heck, I am! I just bought a hard top for my 93 and never having owned a jeep prior to this I'm full of questions. It didn't come with any hardware which is okay. But to my way of thinking it looks like I need to take off all the soft top channels to install the hard top. Am I correct in my thinking? I haven't removed the soft top yet because I just got full doors for the jeep too. I need to do some body work and paint everything before I install. Since summer is just around the corner I'll probably just test fit everything after it's painted and put the soft top back on till fall. I just wanted to know what I needed to do before I take the top off. Thanks for the info and please excuse my ignorance.
