Yes warm is better was about 70 the day I installed it.

I am very happy with the top, working with rampage about the stitching on that one corner. I think the header might been an Amazon return then resale issue, but in the end the header fits on great, the top looks great and I am happy so far.

The black on yours looks a LOT better IMHO.

Good Luck..

Drk5ide Read the instructions twice and wow very vague but undeterred I move forward.
Start with header then with center strap that goes from the roll bar the windshield all goes well.
Now to the side that clip into the door headers. OOOO mother of god!!! Was this part hard 30 minutes of tugging, pulling, and expletives that would make a sailor blush, but I did get it.
So now onto the first roof layer it attaches to the rear roll bar seat belt bolts. The top comes with two bolts to use if you don’t have the seat belts mounted. More good news here the stitching on the left rear strap was loose and coming apart (Hooray Me x2) again too late to turn back now I will deal with the seller or Rampage today.
See Picture.

Ok so now to the windows all went well install pretty much the same as the stock top not hard to figure out.
So everything is lined up and looking good so now the last step the top roof piece must be clipped in and be tightened not bad one side gave me a little trouble other side clip right in.

Rampage Trail Top Day one Review

So I received my Top yesterday box was in good shape and packed well.
I unpacked and laid the top in the sun. I went to removing old top and hardware.
I ordered the top and header from amazon, Sailcloth top $409 prime shipping, Header $32 prime shipping.
Started installing new top unpack header and noticed it is wrapped in saran wrap (not good) and no instructions.
After getting wrap off notice screws are rusted and all of them are loose. (Hooray Me)
See Picture.

Well I am stuck don’t want to install all the old hardware back on so tighten screws and install header pretty straight forward.
Decide to go eat lunch and let top soak up the sun for one more hour (two hour total now).
