Need help to remove top :(, my jeep is different.

Somehow my 2013 sahara Jk 2 door is different than others. How come I have 4 silver bolt like this in the back. It seems they will prevent me from lifting the top.


AND THOSE SILVER BOLT ARE SCREWED FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP, UNLIKING THE TORX 40 BLACK ONES.

NEED HELP DESPERATELY.

I think you need bigger pictures. Did you try removing the torx bolts and seeing if it will come off? If it doesnt remove the others. Problem solved.

Do you see the silver one beside the black torx? (zoom out to 15% on bowser) It is screwed from bottom to top so it s not removable since no screw drive can get underneath, so i have no idea how to remove it. It has a ring preventing the top from being removed.

Those are nothing new and are not screws. Those are the tops of the locating pegs that help align the top on the jeep, I have the same thing on mine.

Just take off the torx bolts then remove the top, make sure that all the electrical/washer connections are off first.
