Alright so this Christmas I got a much needed, new sail cloth replace-a-top from bestop. I'm pretty excited to get it on but its going to be around the 50s for a while weather wise. My question is do I have to wait for the weather to warm up or is there another way to get it loosened up enough to put on the jeep?

Yes it has to be At least 72 degrees.

Don't try it like I did :eek:

Heard of people cranking the heat so I figure I give it a try. I was almost an inch away from the slots in the door Surrounds.
If you force it you might bend the hardware or rip the stitching. Not worth it IMO.

Wait for a nice warm day :)

Sorry about the lateness of the reply, I had my wisdom teeth removed. So I really don't want to mess the top up, but I'm dying to put it on. I guess I'll have to wait because if I mess it up then I'm just up the creek. Apparently my mom was right, patience is a virtue. This is going to suck!

So as a follow up to this thread I ended up putting the top on. It hit 70° today so I figured this was my last chance until spring. This top definitely exceeded my expectations so kudos to Bestop.

I think its much more quiet especially considering I had, I think, denim with a couple rips at the seams. Everything fits up almost perfectly and there isn't extra fabric hanging around anywhere. Just be aware that in the header bar there's probably 14 screws. My top came with provisions for 8. The directions said it didn't matter but I lined the screws up and ran them through anyway. I feel like it held it together better.
