It took me a while to find complete directions on the proper procedure for removing the soft top with dual top option. I picked up my new 2012 Rubi this week and the first thing I wanted to do was remove the hardtop and put on the soft top...however, the hard top in 90+ degree weather with AC and young kids isn't such a bad move either which means I still have to remove the soft top. Here are the online directions from Jeep:
Some things are just easier on my old CJ like not having to worry about weather!
I will say this much...the new 4 Door allows 'Old School' Jeep guys to Rock and Roll again with a family in mind that doesn't have the same Jeep grit as an old CJ guy like myself. Some JK owners and potential buyers who are new to the wrangler lifestyle don't realize what they have today with all the technology and refinements!
Some other advice, wait to get help from at least one other person on the hard top. I've removed hard tops myself off of many older Jeeps...I scratched them all and stressed that I was going to break the back window!
