Yeah, that's what I found as well. Hard to believe, but not really surprising.

I should have recorded it myself. It took my CJ owning friend and I just over 45 minutes a little while ago. But there are several things not covered in the manual and several opportunities for failure.

Stoked that I've got the Sunrider on for the season though.

radioscooter Any SPECIFIC video/tutorial links would be great.

Every dealer on YouTube seems to think that putting the soft top back UP is the same as "installing" it.

I have the manual section in front of me. I just know you all have tips and "watch-out-fors" that they probably don't cover that would be valuable for a first-timer.

Best Soft Top First Install Resource/Tutorial?

I've searched the threads, and haven't seen this framed exactly this way:

I've got a '12 JKU that I got the dual-top option on. Been running since Nov. with the hardtop (after removing the factory-bundled soft top) and - of course - since the weather is excellent, want to get the hard top off and the Sunrider on.

But I know it's tricky for first time installing the soft top and I was hoping you all could point me to the best walkthrough/tutorial?

CD Rom owners manual?
Printed owners manual?
You Tube videos?

What's the best bet?
