Cool Dallas Soft Top install?

Hi- I live in far north Dallas and I have a 2009 Wrangler 4DR w/hard top. I bought a soft top from an individual (no instructions) and would like to get it installed. Does anyone know of a person or business that does this? I called the dealership and they 1st said they didn't know how, then said they'd try it and charge $200/hour. Please drop me an email or answer in this thread if anyone knows of something. Thanks!

Did you get all the hardware? The window channel, door surrounds, tailgate bar?

I would check out Collins Brothers. They could do it and if you had any missing pieces they would prolly have them

If you have the hardware--it'd take you and another person 3-4 hours to complete. If you were closer to north richland hills I'd help on a week day...I installed my bestop with a friend and it wasn't hard at all.

I live in NRH, so could you help me? Just kidding, because I have had the hard top and hard doors off since I got her. Just bikini top and tube doors. Well now I reversed it, so I can't even think about the full soft top right now... lol

Take care,

Well if you need it, I'll definitely help.

I'll help OP but just north of Dallas can mean an hour and a half drive. OP...don't spend 200 an hour on a top install. If you have the correct hardware, it would take someone probably an hour or two to install.

If you are going to be in East Texas I would gladly help. I got one off a 13 to put on my 11 a couple weeks ago and it only took about 45 minutes the first time...
