Dual top group... removal of soft top

So do i _really_ have to take the hard top off to remove the soft top, or can it be finagled out carefully?

I just bought a JK with the dual top group but have yet to take delivery. They put the soft top on under the hard top?

Yes, the frame is mounted and tucked neatly into the trunk under a tightly wrapped leather boot. The windows and hardware will all be in a box. Removal of the soft top or hard top is necessary once you get it home.

Interesting. It can't be as bad as removing the hard top off of a 74 Bronco.
