first time jeep owner questions about tops

I bought a 92 with both tops. The soft top is a bestop and has a frame that looks like I need to remove to put on the hard top. Can someone tell me if i need to remove this? also, what else to i need for the hard top, any sort of weatherstripping? Last, do I just put it in place and screw it on?

You'll need to remove both the frame and all the belt rails including the windshield channel. You can use the same nuts/bolts to mount the hardtop that were used to mount the belt rails, but I replaced the bolts with a thumb-screw type from the hardware store to make it easier. As far as weatherstripping, they make over priced "kits" specifically for this task, but your best bet is to spend a couple bucks for a roll of 3/4" foam weatherstrip tape and cut it to size.

Are you born to resist, or be abused?
