Best Soft Top First Install Resource/Tutorial?
 
I've searched the threads, and haven't seen this framed exactly this way:

I've got a '12 JKU that I got the dual-top option on. Been running since Nov. with the hardtop (after removing the factory-bundled soft top) and - of course - since the weather is excellent, want to get the hard top off and the Sunrider on.

But I know it's tricky for first time installing the soft top and I was hoping you all could point me to the best walkthrough/tutorial?

CD Rom owners manual?
Printed owners manual?
You Tube videos?

What's the best bet?

Thanks.

YouTube :)

Any SPECIFIC video/tutorial links would be great.

Every dealer on YouTube seems to think that putting the soft top back UP is the same as "installing" it.

I have the manual section in front of me. I just know you all have tips and "watch-out-fors" that they probably don't cover that would be valuable for a first-timer.

There's only one I could find and it's only for a jk. There are no videos whatsoever for a total new soft top install for a jku.

Yeah, that's what I found as well. Hard to believe, but not really surprising.

I should have recorded it myself. It took my CJ owning friend and I just over 45 minutes a little while ago. But there are several things not covered in the manual and several opportunities for failure.

Stoked that I've got the Sunrider on for the season though.
