New to the Jeep world, just bought a 2008 Wrangler Unlimited great deal only thing is the hardtop right behing the driver has developed a squeak. Tried to tighten eveerything down nothing. Anyone ever had this issue and if so how to quiet this thing down.

Are you sure it's the top? Sometimes the trim around the roll bar squeaks. If it is from the top is it from the panels or the rear portion? If it's the panels, have you tried removing and reinstalling it? There may be something stuck in the weatherstripping so it's not sitting right.

The hold down bolts on my top were a little long so I had to get some nylon spacers. This allowed it to be tightened and the rattle disappeared. I have an '09 so our tops are probably the same model Bestop hardtop. They were before the freedom tops.
