Soft Top Rear Installation
I'm in the process of installing my soft top and was wondering if someone wouldn't mind taking some pictures of how the rear part of the soft top installs in the slots in the back and in the cross bar. I must be missing something. Plus the other problem is that I can't seem to get my front part to shut. Thanks, I would really appreciate it.

It's a little dark for a pick, but I will see what I can find. The reason that you are having trouble with the front is probably due to the temp. Cold will shrink the top and make it hard to work with.

Either its too cold or you have the metal part that slides onto the back window installed the wrong way

The 2 metal brackets attach to the tub equally spaced(on this picture under the window flap at the bottom) opening toward the bottom and the bar goes through the bottom of the window. Once installed, lay the bar on the brackets and twist down to seat. Hope that this helps.

Leave the back loose and latch the front first. Once the front is latched, pull down on the last bow in the back and that should give you enough slack to get things attached on the back.

Yep, hook but don't latch the windshield parts first, then clip the back, then install the windows. And the tail gate bar rolls down under the latches on the back.
