HRPinDC I just put my soft top on today too!!!! Two things, none of the instructions mentioned disconnecting the window washer line going to the the wiper. I disconnected the wiring harness, but no mention of the line for the fluid. Good thing we saw that before starting to lift the top. Secondly, getting the front latches hooked was a bear. I let it warm up in the sun and then I pushed down on the second hinged bar (the corner of the hump right above the rear doors) from the outside, while my dad latched the front. Went right in. I too put the torx bolt back in and got two expedition gear anchors from the Expedition Exchange for the front two holes so I have another tie down for my rear net. The anchors mentioned above a great too. I Plastidipped mine to avoid scratching the tub.

Thanks! Will do

Only has 4 screws so it can't be that hard (famous last words...) Thanks in advance....
