I just bought a 1995 Jeep Wrangler and it is really cute being it is already raised, big tires, and new rims. It is also a soft top which I did want but now do not know how to take off. I do not know how to take off the windows from the half doors either. Does anyone know off a website that could help me out or just post instructions.
Feel free to email me or just make fun of me. I know I am new to the jeep world.
I also need help on how to remove the windows from the half doors.

Don't feel bad, it took me a while too when I first got mine last fall. It takes some time putting it down and back up. Once you get the hang of it you should be able to do it in 5 minutes or so. ok so here we go:
First the have doors:
1. Toward the front, there should be one snap, unsnap it, and grab either end from the bottom, pull it out and down to unhook the plastic strip from the rail.
2. once that is done, simply lift it off the half doors pulling it out of the three holes.
Now for the top:
1. Unzip and remove the side windows.
2. Unzip the rear window and your choice either unzip the horizontal zipper on top to remove the window, or just roll it up and use the 2 straps to hang it up.
3. There are two bars on each side that pivot right where the middle of the side window is, pull out the set pin and pull the bars hooked together down to relieve pressure.
4. Unsnap the snaps running along the top of where the door is.
5. Remember how the doors had that slider/rail system? Here it is again, along the rear corners, pull out the sliders.
6. By this time, the top should be loose enough to pull out the slider along the top of the windsheild.
7. Unhook the drip guards where the snaps were on both sides and let them fall downward.
8. Take the 4 bars that are still holding them up and push them as need be to adjust it so the top will come down. (Its hard to explain this one, but common sense should guide you through this part)
9. Then simply tuck the top in the back or remove it completely and your ready for some fun in the sun.
This is all assuming you have Factory OEM hardware. By the way, I'd like to warn you as being new to the Jeep community, we don't really use the word "cute" to discribe our Jeeps. They are rugged and manly
Jeep's are not cute,,, especially lifted ones!!! There lean, mean, trail-machines!!! Lol, good luck with your soft top.
One tip,, if you don't give a damn like some of us, and have your top down in 40 degree weather, be carefull when putting it back on. If it is too cold, the fabric will not stretch, and you will rip it!! ( I'm on my 3rd soft top in 2 years)_ )
Just thought I would pass this on to ya!

Actually, I was the one who posted this message but somehow someone else's name appeared, I just didn't want this person to be ticked off.
I did take off the top quite easily, however the windows for the doors are a different story. I cannot pull out those three bars because I cannot take off those squared covers which go around the three bars.
I'm also in the same boat and I've found this thread to be the most helpful so far. My question is, is it vital to the process to unzip the rear window? Can I just follow the steps listed above and skip the rear window removal? Reason I ask is because the zipper along the passenger side of the rear window is stuck.
One little tip for ya! Those cute little straps that hold your back window rolled up, will scratch the crap out of your back window! Roll the window up with any dust or dirt on it, it's just like sand paper. With the top up and rear window zipped in, don't let the straps dangle/ flop around or they will scratch/ cloud up the plastic and it can't be reversed! I just bought a new top and cut the straps off it. If your back window is already scratched up, forget what I just said and roll it, and wheel it!
