x2, if you remove the padding from the main bar, you can remove the little post they mount to as well - also only one bolt each.

X2 and removing the posts cuts down on the whistling when the windshield is down.

A ratchet with a 1/2" socket and 4 bolts and it's down!



Nice!

Hey I know you!



You moved to Texas??

Thanks for the ideas! I'll get the CJ knobs on order, but I'm still up in the air about the roll bar spreader bar. I was thinking about sectioning out a 6" piece near the windshield bracket and sleeve it with a larger (on the outside) 12" tube. Then using the same CJ knobs, drill and tap, and then I would have my quick disconnect for the spreaders. Anyone done this? I use those bars to attach my bimini top when driving around daily because it's easy to take off and put on.

I use a CJ style bikini top. No spreader bar needed for the original bikini top.
