craigwieck Thanks. Can't wait to go to silver lake in a few weeks. Nothing better than going out on the dunes in a jeep with the top off.

It really wasn't worth it. It was too much work for so little time of fun. Just wait, Michigan will give us the treatment we deserve. The hair dryer technique is a pain. Side note, the trek top is a pain to get on the first time. Took me about 4 hours to get it on the first time. If you need help, let me know, because my knuckles were bleeding the first time I put it on alone.

I've used heaters in the past to warm the top and I would hang the soft top with rope from say the tracks for your garage door and place the heater under it and when you think it's warm enough install it. I would also warm the windows, but don't get them too close to the heater. The tops now are far more forgiving unlike the old style CJ tops that had snaps and were a huge pain to get on.
I try not to use heat guns, since it concentrates the heat in one area and the potential to damage them is greater, but a good hair dryer would work. Others may have luck with heat guns but I don't use them for this.
Good luck on the install.

J33P4X4 How? I have a heater in my garage. I'm sure i could get it up to 80 degrees this time of year. Or are you talking about a heat gun?
04-17-2013 04:13 PM
idiot magnet Get it as warm as you can before you install it. Makes it a TON easier.
