Hard top to soft top
I just bought my first Wrangler about a month ago. It's an '03 Sport. I'm in North Jersey. I bought it on a whim as I've always wanted one and wanted to learn how to work on it....though I don't have the time/resources/location and ABSOLUTELY no experience. Haha...i'll get there eventually. I'm a 25 with a Mechanical Engineering degree but absolutely no automotive knowledge, it's sad
. So basically, i'm also looking for friends.
Luckily (with the winter we're having) it has a factory hard top. The one thing I will have to do by the time this weather warms up is get a soft top on it and I have a ton of questions.
I've heard that on a TJ you can actually put the hard top back on over the soft top?
What exactly do I need to go from a factory hard top to soft top. I've found "OEM" soft tops but they don't say everything that is included. I found door surrounds for $50, which i'm pretty sure I need.
How the heck do I do it?
Whose basement/yard/porch can I put my hardtop in for the summer?
