Boot Don't Fit!
 
no way, no how does my mopar boot fit over the mopar soft top as it is folded down... is it possible I have the wrong model, like for the two-door? there are two part numbers, 82209912 and 82209911, but i cant see where it is written on the boot and the directions are the same for both. Does anyone know the dimensions of the two?

I was thinking about getting on soon so I would like to know how this turns out. Take some pics. Some times seeing whats going on helps.

How are you installing it? Do not connect the straps to the roll bar until last.

I have the Mopar soft top boot for my 2010 2 door. It's a bit of a challenge to get it on, but it does fit.

I can't even get the straps near the roll bar. It seems to me there isn't enough volume in the boot to accomodate the metal from the frame! let alone the fabric for the top. That is why I am wondering if there is a meaningful difference between the two items and wondering if I have the one meant for the two door. If I clip it on the rails on one corner, no possible way to stretch and pull tight enough to hook on other corner rails. Very frustrating.

One is for the 2dr and the other for the 4. Big difference.

Any way to tell which I have? Through box away at work. Order documents say it is for the four door!

You should be clipping the top onto the rails before stuffing the top in and zipping it. Attach both sides then push the bottom up and through to zip it together. It basically wraps around the soft top material.

Can't clip onto the rails.. therein lies the problem.

I have the rugged ridge one and it's the same way. It's a PIA to get on, I tore the tap straps off the first time I tried to get it on. I have to get it real hot on the asphalt before getting it on the Jeep. The RR box had the number for the JKU which I have. I am not impressed, by the time I get it on, I have to change clothes from the workout.
