Yes you will.... Jk tops are sooo much easier than TJ tops once you figure them out. In that respect I do have some JK envy...

This is a very common problem with folks new to the JK soft tops. If you need more detail read this thread (http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/sof...-jk-86259.html) and the one linked inside it.

InfernoGirl You're not installing the window completely into the C channel on the door surround. It's a commonly overlooked but important step in installing the windows on a JK. Zip an inch or two of window, then fold the rigid edge of the window into the door surround channel, it rolls into it in rather an U on it's side shape... Then when it's all the way in, start the lower retainer into it's channel and then zip the window up and finish the lower retainer... You should only see the stitching on the window where the retainer is sewn into the rigid edge when it's properly installed... Too dark for pics tonight or I'd go take one to show you.

Another soft top question

Thanks to your suggestions my forum friends, I got the soft top on successfully a few weeks ago and love using the sunrider. One little issue has cropped up, however. At the place where the door frame meets the soft top on the side (if you are looking at passenger door it would be left side of the doorframe toward the top) the soft top keeps coming out of it's place between the door and the jeep and starts flapping around in the wind. That part of the soft top does not appear to be anchored or fastened in in any way, just fits over the lip. Any ideas what i can do to make this stop?

2011 jeep sahara 2-door. Thanks so much!

Heather
