Help with soft top?!

So I have my soft top mounted and everything. Easy. When I wanna take it off
(Often) I don't wanna completely take it off I wanna roll it on the bracket and then fold the bracket down and tie it down on the back. Help please to know if this is possible to where I never have to take the soft top completely off!

All soft tops are designed to do that with them. Just unhook the front and fold everything to the back. Some companies have a cover that you can install over the top when its down to keep dust and debris out of it. It's called a top boot.

Mine had elastic straps that you used once it was down, to stretch over the bars and hook into the side channel so that everything didn't rattle. That was a Bestop.

Cruise Craig's list. There are lots of new ones in the box, or take offs barely used for rediculously cheap. People get them with the dual top option and don't want the soft top cluttering up their garage

There are a few tricks to folding it and tucking it so that it can be rolled up tight enough to store neatly and not be a big wind catching abomination. Do a search on you tube for videos that demonstrate how to turn the corners inside out, and weave the top between the bows.

I just fold mine down and then wrap the front part of the soft top around rest of it. Three camo bungie cords wrap around it and away you go......
