Loosen the roll bar screws. They come way over tightened from the factory if you have yet too. That solved my leak issue

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on this one. I just hope there wont be any trickery after I go down there.

Your thoughts on this one?

Thanks,

WOW that sounds great!

As I understand the Affiliate Program (ie, Tread Lightly), the Dealer gets 1% extra off invoice and the buyer gets 1% off invoice so it's a win-win for buyer and dealer. Can't hurt to ask if you could get another 1% for the Affiliate Program because it would also be giving the dealer 1% back. Just a thought!

Sticker on the door says 37psi, I run them at 35 around town.



When off-roading I air down to 12psi.

My question was made tongue in cheek. Still, I'm happy to now have the technology and resources that allows us to make less mistakes, save time/money and not destroy things.

mine were not lined up right from the factory, I really struggled the first time. To the point where I put a small screwdriver in there and split the teeth of the zipper and realigned them.

dealerjoe Once the zipper pulls are nesting on one another, pull down on the top zipper only an towards the center of tailgate. The zippers stay on the window while the solid "aligning" piece of zipper is on the soft top itself. You may have to make sure that both zipper pulls are completely to the bottom.

I.E. If standing in middle of tailgate opening, facing rear window, run zipper "R" from bottom right up and across to lower left, opening the window. It should nest on top of zipper "L". You should then be able to grasp both zippers in your right hand and the sail panel of soft top in your left and pull the window and zippers down and away, toward the center of tailgate opening. I hope this helps.

You don't need to unclip the sail panels. I also unzip first, and then remove the tailgate bar.

Can you take a picture for us?

Take a look at this video to see how to install the window (starting at 13:28):

MUST SEE NEW!! How to Install your Soft Top 2011 2012 2013 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK Dual Top - YouTube

Do the reverse. Seeing it might make sense. Actually, the whole video is worth watching. It takes some practice to get used to raising and lowering the soft top. I can did it solo now in just a couple minutes.

Unzip from right to left. When the two zippers come together you can slide them down off to the left. They will stay attached to the window.
