I Got One! Newbie Questions

Hello All! I just got a new 4 door Sahara Unlimited. Khaki over black with the chrome package, trailer package, remote start, side air bags, etc. I've already gotten a bunch of compliments on it and I gotta say...... I agree, it is beautiful!

I have some REALLY newbie questions. I did do some searching but it seems that no one is as much of a newbie as me!

My questions have to do with the tops. I have a 4 door and i got the dual top package. I promptly removed the hard top and put it into storage. I then put up the soft top and that took a while, jumping from page to page, section to section in the manual. What a pain in the arse!

So here are my questions: Is my softop considered a sunrider or just a soft top? Which comes with the dual top group? or maybe there isn't a difference? My wife isn't real gung ho about raising and lowering the top but do I have the kind that can just fold the top back without lowering it into the trunk area? Next question, I can't seem to get the little part between the doors to seal right. There is some cushy rubbery foam stuff there and it just doesn't seat right. Is there a secret?

I've watched the Jeep videos on the website but neither of my two questions are really addressed.

Thanks, and i look forward to many years of fun with this thing!

I can't answer your questions about the soft top as I only have the hard top but congrats on the new Jeep and welcome!

You have a sunrider soft top.

Unhook the latches, pull out the window clips. There is a bar above the soundbar, pop that up while grabbing the front and make the top form a big "W" while moving it to the back. Attach velcro straps to the exposed bars.
