Long island JK Owners
 
Got a 2011 unlimited soft top never installed. Any long island pros out there willing to give me a hand. Have all hardware to install from scratch. Was going to drop at dealer but want to learn my jeep. Id throw in a few bucks for the help.

Thanks

when do you want to do it. I've never done a JK soft top but it cant be that hard

i just put my soft top on for the first time yesterday, a friend of mine who had a TJ and lives around the block helped. I was surprised how much pulling and strectching it took. I cannot believe how many pieces and parts there are to the soft top!! 16 pieces not including the actual main part of the folding top. I would think that after all these years they would have figured out a more simple process and design. Every other convertible i have owned or dealt w/ regularly have been so much less involved, granted they have all been two door sports cars, but damn. Ok rant over it wasn't really too bad especially for the first time, once it stretches/loosens up a little it will get easier i am sure.

Put mine on Friday for the first time. Piece of cake even though I couldn't find directions. I'll help you out if you want- but please no $. Shoot me a PM if you want. I'm in Smithtown/Hauppauge area.

I'm like 30 mins from the Throgsneck bridge. I spend a lot of time out in Bellport LI helping a buddy build a buggy

Sounds good. Guess I'll be waiting for this ny weather to warm up if it ever does. I hear it's best to do it with a warm top to stretch the fabric
