here4beer FYI download owner's manual here: Jeep Owners | Download an Owners Manual 2004 - 2011 | Jeep

For 2015 JK, look at pg. 193. 2015 JKU --> pg. 198

Looks like you just remove the two Torx fasteners on each side of the soft top bow assemply AND remove the brackets from the rollbar posts (I suppose they could cause a nasty injury if left on).

Geoff@Bestop LilScootie, deepbluerubi:

Welcome to the world of Wranglers, and to this forum!

One of the key joys of owning a Jeep is the vast array of options available to you. Topless, soft top, hard top, Bikini tops, etc. (and that's just for tops! Wait till you start looking at bumpers and lifts!).

In addition to the advice above, I'd really like to suggest you start experimenting with the "transformer" like options you've got with your Jeep. I think you'll enjoy it more. You may even discover that you really want that soft top after all. Maybe not this time of year, but when summer gets here....

I would recommend you wait for a buddy and just lift the hard top off completely. It will make the removal of the soft top that much easier.

yj-genral you have to remove the front freedom tops before you can lift off the rear portion. but that doesnt take two minutes.
02-15-2010 09:59 AM
LilScootie Thanks for the info!! Should I remove the Freedom Top first before trying to lift the back end of the hard top?? Or, will it be ok to leave it connected?

joelbarrett I removed the soft top from the Unlimited I bought in Dec. It took a total of about 15 minutes and it only took that long because I needed to get a neighbor help me lift off the hard top and then put the hard top back on after the soft top was removed. It's very easy (much easier than I expected, especially since this is my first Wrangler). Just follow the directions in the manual and, if you don't have the manual, download it from Jeep.com. All it takes tool-wise is Torx #30 and #40 screwdrivers.

InfernoGirl You are supposed to remove the soft top as soon as you get home with it. The soft top is installed under the hard top for shipping purposes only. Keeping the soft top under the hard top will eventually rub holes in the soft top. I would think that removal instructions would be in the manual. I would imagine that you would have to remove the hard top to remove the soft top, but I don't know.

How can we remove our soft tops??

My brother and I both have new JK's that came with both the soft top and hard top. We also know we will never use the soft tops and they are getting in the way of putting stuff in the back of the Jeep ( groceries, dogs, etc ). I noticed that there are two screws on each side of the soft top hooking them to the roll bar....my question is, is there a way to remove the soft tops WITHOUT removing the hard top?? We kinda tried it quickly yesterday, but noticed the arms of the soft top touch the hard top when trying to pull it out. I know I know......we might use them someday, but for now they are in the way....thanks for your help !
