Starting the install:
1st I removed the factory plastic door jamb seal thing so I could mount the new Bestop bracket to the windshield frame:
Then on the passenger side the bolt sheared off, pretty musch S.O.P. whenever working on a Jeep..
So I drilled the old bolt out, and then went slightly oversized and tapped for a slightly larger bolt to fit:
Then these small brackets get installed into the factory slots for the factory top at the winshield:
Then the windshield header gets clamped into place with the new brackets and a couple of bolts:
Then I moved on to the side mount brackets that hold the upper, rear, and door surround tubing:
They install on both sides like this:
Then the rear window cross bar brackets get installed:
They're marked left and right so there's no confusion.
The upper bars and door surround brackets in place and ready to be bolted down.
The brackets in place and waiting for nuts to hold them in place:
After both sides are done they need to meet in the middle like so:
