How to install new soft top and hardware
 
Have a 07 4dr with hard top. I just bought soft top with all hardware, but it didn't come with instructions. Anyone know where to find instructions or better yet a video?

Sunrider soft top?

There are directions in the owner's manual for that one and also some videos on line to show how it goes together. The most difficult part of the assembly was putting all of the screws in the header. The most difficult part of putting it on the vehicle was putting the two brackets that support the rear bow onto the roll bar. Even with the directions, I finally gave up on the directions and assembled it the way it looked that it should go. Once I figured the placement of all of the parts on the ground, I put it on the vehicle. The brackets on the roll bar go with the support mount holes to the outside (I had them originally facing the inside).

Those are some of the highlights of the pitfalls that I ran into.

Welcome to the forum. :wavey:

Bestop Supertop 4-dor JK
 
I assume you talk about the original MOPAR top? I couldn't get my hands on the original Sunrider Top for my 4-door JK without paying an arm and a leg - so I just bought a Bestop Supertop that will show up any day for $825 + shipping.
Does anybody know if I can re-install the hard top without removing the soft top components? Any tips about how to install this particular top?

Since there is a factory dual-top probably. Not sure about the Besttop though...
