Just got a 2010 Sahara JKU and am LOVING it. This forum has helped so much.

One question I couldn't find an answer to is regarding the hardtop.

1) the two torx screws at the front. Is there a quick release version of those or do you need tools?

2) what is the best bang for the buck with the rear 6 screws?

I'm not aware of a quick release version. I think its a T50 if memory serves.

Quadratec carries the screws and the body side nuts if you need those too.

^^^^^^ I bought some similar to these also and they work great. You do not have to use any tools to remove them. They are for the back lower portion of the hard top only. The top 2 screws that are under the freedom panels will have to remain stock due to clearance issues from the freedom panels being over the screws. But those top screws take about 30 seconds to remove with a ratchet and a torx socket.

Also, You can use any of the hard top bolts in any of the locations. So in a pinch you could take a bolt from one of the back holes and put it in the front hole. The bolts that hold the hard top on are all the same size.
If you aren't worried about the torx head, you could always take one of the other bolts to a hardware store and find bolts that are that size and thread pitch. But the correct bolts aren't very expensive.

Yeah I've had the same thought.
Seems like a strange thing to steal... Carrying a small T40 with a ratchet seems way better IMO. Like the one in the Jeep kit.

Keep your torx bolts, make the thieves work harder to steal those tops :drinks:

For me the quick knob/quick release bolts aren’t worth it this day in age. A Milwaukee cordless ratchet with a torx socket is so much faster.
