I did the search but couldn't find what I am looking for......I just installed the spiderweb shade on my 2012 JKU. I am seeing information online that says the soft top can be put back up but I have to release two of the spider balls (ha ha) for the front latches on the soft top. At the same time, I read where some people are able to latch the soft top without removing the two spider balls.

Does anyone have any definitive information? I think I probably could latch the soft top but am worried about ruining those two spider balls. Anyone leave all spider balls attached with soft top on?

Just undo the 2 by the latches. No reason to leave them on. I need to remove mine in order to be able to close the latches on the top anyway.

Sorry to double post, I just posted this same question, along with a photo. I just installed mine yesterday and feel uncomfortable latching the soft top down on those bungees.

Undo the 2 bungees where the top latches. Why is this a big deal?

I undid mine. Makes it easier to reach up there to get the latches into place. No reason to leave everything attached, and it takes about 5 seconds to do both.

I leave the 2 spiderballs off the latches 24/7 and haven't had any problems. Maybe over time it might sag, but everything is perfect for now. I have the JKini, don't know if it's worse for the longer ones.
