You want to get it out ASAP. Leaving it in can damage the material and Chrysler won't warranty it. Basically as soon as you get home with your new Jeep take it out or remove the hard top.

Yes, it says in the manual and on the orange tag wrapped around it to pull it out ASAP. On 3 dual tops I've bought, I ended up doing it the weekend after I bought it, it's usually OK that long.

Yes! One thing I do like about the hard top is the flip up glass. Makes getting into the cargo area a lot easier than that stupid bar and dealing with the rear window and zipper.

jwilson2598 Whay jay said. It states poretty clearly in the manual that if you leave the soft top on and install the hardtop, you can damage the soft top. The corners of the header will rub on the hardtop and put holes in the material.

jaydraeger You should take off the softtop before putting on the hardtop. They are not meant to be on the Jeep at the same time.

2012 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited - Soft Top to Hard Top

I have 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited..my question is can I install the hardtop on the jeep without removing the softtop? Can I just lower the softtop and the hardtop fits on top or are there screws and parts that need to come off? Getting ready for first winter replacing the softtop.
