jrussblues On a 4 door make sure you do not mix up the front and rear bows, you will either bend a bow or break a door surround if you do. After the canopy is on, back window goes in first but don't secure the bottom until everything else is on. To get windows into channel rails start the zippers about 1 or 2 inches on both the side and the back. Get side channels in then zip in windows. Use the rear window to adjust side to side if the side windows aren't tight when you are lining everything up.
It seems kinda complicated but its really not. Just take your time the first time and know that you likely won't be able to fully zip all of the zippers until about a month later. The fit is really tight, as it should be. Also, as mentioned before, sun helps greatly.

It works like q factory sun rider. Super easy, 2 latches.

axplayer One trick I learned is to keep the hardware loose, then tighten after everything is zipped/latched down. Worked wonders.

This has been my fear. I've been wanting to toss back the sunrider, or even pull off the windows, but I figure I better wait a week or so.

DuRsT I put mine on yesterday and still haven't gotten the rear window zippers all the way down.

Macavity Frustrating weekend because the sun didn't want to stay out, but finally got mine on.



Love it!

KY JK It takes a few tries to get the correct "sequence" while installing the top. Once you get that down it's pretty easy!!! I LOVE mine!!! The only problem with it is that there are 4 others in town with it now!?

bearman95 Attachment 156680I agree with all comments above, hard to put on the first time but worth it in the end.

This is the best advice. Didn't do it on mine and had to backtrack. Also, if yours came with the one piece tailgate bar (with riveted on fasteners) do yourself a huge favor and get the mopar style. Much easier to open the back window.

JeepGuy94 Let it sit out in the sun for an hour or 2 or it will be a PITA to install the windows. Also be careful latching the front hooks on the header bar. Too much pressure can make the plastic around the latch crack. Learned that the hard way. Install was on my 2007 JKU. Good luck and post pics after install!
