Here's one on Youtube if you need it. It's for installation of a soft top with factory hardware.

|NAVYCHIEF||pick and choose. some of these guys will give good info and some will treat you like crap. you have to be able to filter out the crap. scott howard is good at what he does. some newer guys think they know it all. just be careful and read everything twice.|

you need to make sure the hard top will fit before you trade.
and just ask any yj owner in your town to help ya with the soft top .
jeep people are always glad to help new jeepers.

I found someone who wants to trade me a hard top for it so waiting for that to hopefully work out.

I was going to make a video on installing a top on a YJ. I was going to have a caveman hitting it with a rock, and say something like "the typical YJ owner can usually manage any fine tuning that needs to be done..."
Is this a Bestop product? Call our customer support people and talk with them. They really are good at this sort of thing. I don't have enough experience with a YJ top to help you out. 800-845-3567

Thanks for the input but there is no videos i'm finding for a YJ.
I'm pretty sure I know how to do a TJ now, from the 100s of install videos for them.
I tried for about an hour yesterday and nothing was working... The door snaps wouldn't reach all the way, the REAR especially would not get the bar in the corners of the top. I even tried to pry it over the bar, thus the new little rip I got now

There is no other way other than having the plastic strip fit in the track. Just some more advise- ensure that the roof is "centre" as clipping the sides over the doors will be difficult to say the least.. if this is not done, you will have redo it.

|hannahuffster||It honestly is something that has to be learned by oneself. I dont think there is actually a "set way" to put one on. You have to get out there and wrestle the thing around the front yard for a couple hours the first time, and learn from failure. Dont worry though, it get easier each time and soon it will be a 5 min. job! A good tip though is how you store it is how easy it will be to put on time after time. If you fold it - it will be a PITA to but on. Start at the windshield and work backwards. Also the warmer it is outside generally the easier they are to get on...|

Anyone have a link to instruction on how to install soft top?
I need to figure out how to install this soft top I just bought.
The bestop website has a guide but hard to see the pictures.
