Step 6: Attach the spring tension clips. The instructions don't say this, but I found that if you unlatch the softtop and fold the sunrider portion back, the spring clips will fit right in. If it's still too tight, you can unlatch the center support rod and make it looser. Don't forget to re-attach the center rod afterwrads. Also, make sure you go under the screw that is built-in to the door surrounds.
Use the outer-most hole for now. As the top stretches, you can create more tension by moving it further in.
Here's what it looks like once it's finished and the top is locked and tight.
Step 7: Attach the inside straps to the sound bar. Self-explanatory and very easy. They attach to the existing hole where the hard top panel screws go.
Go ahead and latch and lock the header bar at the point. It's going to be a little tight, but again, if the Jeep is outside and it's warm, it's not too difficult.
You're done with the top portion at this point. I left it like this for the rest of the day since it was nice out. I'll continue the thread when we install the sides and rear windows.
I went ahead and installed the sides tonight. A little tough since the zippers are really deep dehind the door surrounds. The side towards the door and bottom attach just like the factory tops. Slide the zipper just a few inches, then snap the door-side edge inside the groove, then finish zipping and pull the the window down and snap the bottom edge in.
I'm tired. I think I'll put the rear window in tomorrow.
Total time to install was about an hour, including taking pictures and having fun with my daughter. Very easy to do and highly recommended. Took it for a drive and it works great.
One thing I haven't figured out is how to secure the sunrider top when it's opened. It looks like it just lays there with no straps or anything holding it down. I wouldn't get on the highway with it like that, but it seems fine for driving around town. The header bar is plastic, but very heavy, so it should hold the sunrider down.
