Video Transcript for Getting The Most From Your Bestop Supertop

Here, at etrailer, we've worked with a lot of Bestop accessories. Today, we're going to show you a few tips and tricks we've learned along the way. Today, we're working with a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Limited with an annex Supertop. A lot of these tips will apply to any Jeep-Bestop combination. This top has a sunroof, so if your top has a sunroof, the first thing you'll need to do is come down. You may need to lower the visor and pull it out of the way. Now, we'll need to pop the latch on both sides.

On some Jeeps, you may have a channel here that you my need to undo. This one doesn't have it, so we can go ahead and lift up our top. We're going to fold it back, and what we want to do is we want to guide our fabric back out of the way as well. So that both the front and back passengers can fully enjoy the sunroof feature, you want to make sure and guide the middle section of the fabric back as well when you're folding it down. So, what we can do is we can kind of pick up on that just a little bit and help that back. Just like that.

Now, tops with sunroofs come with these hook and loop straps, and in the instructions, it's not really clear what they're used for, but what they're used for is to hold the bow system down while we've got it in the sunroof position. Just like that; that way it doesn't flap in the wind. Now, with the sunroof down, if we'd like to get some more air flow in our Jeep, we can simply remove all the windows, or we can just open up the back window. Now, it features a roll up that we can do so we don't have to completely remove it. What we'll do is we'll open up our rear hatch here, then we're going to come over to our zipper, and unzip it all the way up to right about this position, right around where the seam is. Now, both sides have a zipper, so we're going to do the same thing on this side.

And once we've got it there, we'll go ahead and disengage our tailgate bar, and what we're going to do is we're going to roll it up. Once we get it rolled all the way up, we've got these elastic straps that are buttoned on to our frame that we can loop around our rear window, just like this. This is going to allow us to store it without completely removing it, so we don't have to worry about it getting scratched. Now, for the full Jeep experience, you're going to want to remove all of the windows in order to put the top down, so we'll start right back here with the rear window. We'll bring our first zipper on the left hand side here, which is going to be the driver's side, all the way down to where it was. We'll grab our other zipper, work our way back down, and then disconnect the zipper.

Once we do that, we can go ahead and place our rear window out of the way, and then we'll undo our side windows. Start by undoing the hook and loop, bringing up the zipper, working that around, and just pulling out the channel underneath. Now, our windows are just kind of hanging out back here. A great accessory to have would be the Bestop HOSS Window Storage Duffel bag to keep them safe and free of scratches. To continue lowering our top down, well need to disengage our sails here. We'll go ahead and pull down and pull this channel out from underneath the body here. We've found it easier to fold them up into the top just like this. That way everything folds nicely when the top is finally down. So, we'll repeat the same step on this side. Now, the final step before lowering our top is we need to disengage these cable guide latches, so we'll come up here, we'll push down, we'll pull that out of the way, and then we'll do it on that side. The easiest way to lower your top is to come back here from the back. Go ahead and start pulling down on it, and when you can, you want to go ahead and guide it down just like that. Put everything in a position, that way it folds nicely. As we're coming down, we'll pull our fabric top. That way, we can make sure that it folds nicely. Just like that. Now, we don't need to worry about tucking the top into the side here. It simply needs to lay right in front of the spare tire, so in order to close the tailgate, we'll need to make sure and lift up on our top like this, and we can bring that around, and then lay that back down. After you've enjoyed the ride, getting your top back up and be pretty easy, but there are a few tips I can throw in along the way. You may need a helping hand, but you can do it by yourself. So, the first thing we'll do is open our tailgate. We come back here, I'm going to kind of angle it up, and then I'm going to help it up like this, kind of guide it up as you go. Now, we'll come over here to the side. We'll open up our door. You want to be very careful not to smash your fingers, so we'll grab it from the outside like this. Then I'm going to guide my sunroof bow assembly, this portion right here, into my cable guide right here, and then it's going to snap in place. Once we get it there, we can simply push it up like that, guiding it in place, and then it's locked into the levers. Once we've got that locked into our cable guides, we can just guide the top up and then down on to the windshield. Just like that. Here on the inside, we've found it can be difficult to latch our soft top down to our Jeep, so what we do is if we can manage to get one side hooked in, then we'll go ahead and latch it completely down, which will help bring the top toward the windshield. Then we should be able to get our other latch really easy. For our sails, we'll go ahead and bring those back around. It can be kind of difficult to pull on them down to get them latched around the channel here. What you want to do is you'll bring your hand up top here at the rear of the bow and pull down as you tuck that in. Just like that. As you can see, it's really easy. You get everything tucked in and nice. Let's go ahead and grab our rear window. The trick here is to go ahead and put in your tailgate bar into your brackets, here at the rear. So we'll do that first. The reason why we put the tailgate bar in first is because if we didn't then it would have all the weight pulling down. It would be very difficult to attach the zipper. What we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and put that zipper in place, then we can kind of guide the window up as we're working our zipper around, making sure it doesn't get caught on anything. If the tension gets kind of tight over here, pretty simple, all we have to do is come down to our bar, and we can just kind of shift it over a little bit just to help relieve some of that tension, as you can see there. With that in place, we can go ahead and tuck our channels underneath our body here, and then we can move on to our side windows. For our side window, these can be extremely difficult to put in, especially in colder weather. What we're going to do is go ahead and open up our rear door here, and let's go ahead and start our zipper. Once we get that started, we're only going to zip it up about 4 to 6 inches, right about that position. That way, we can come around here and put the front of our channel in. So, we're going to bring our channel around, we're going to tuck that in and work our way down, and then we can go ahead and finish up zipping our window up. And by doing that channel first, that makes it way easier now that it's already in rather than having to get it in after we zip it up. We'll zip that all the way down, we'll come down to our channel here, tuck that underneath, and then we'll finish it off with our hook and loop, tucking that in as we go. And then we've got it. Now, with our top back up and in place, hopefully you found these tips useful. If you have anymore questions, our friendly customer service and our expert staff'd be happy to help you out. .

Review from a similar Bestop Supertop in Jeep Tops

Prompt service, good product with straight forward instruction. I bought this Toyota FJ40 with no top dint want to spin to much on a hard top but still needed a top, so I opted for a soft top, did my homework on the internet and came across ETRAILER. I'm glad I found them, got the best deal and fast delivery. The good fit just made my truck look much better. 235248

comment by: Kim - 03/11/2016



Hello Kim,You can take the back window completely off and lift the side windows, but no the top dont fold down like a can always take the complete top off, leave the frame on, it will take you 20 minutes.

Review from a similar Bestop Supertop in Jeep Tops

This is a really nice looking, quality top. I had someone else install it, so I can't personally speak about that aspect, but it didn't sound like it was too difficult. I like that there are a lot of different options for opening the windows; you can use it in all sorts of configurations. The only problem so far is that I have to lift up on the passenger door a little to close it and get it to latch. Not sure if this has to do with the top or the Jeep, since the Jeep was just restored and it wouldn't surprise me if something on the Jeep is a little out of alignment. If you are looking for a top for your Jeep I don't think you could do any better than this one. 208806

Review from a similar Bestop Supertop in Jeep Tops

My Bestop Supertop fit my Toyota FJ-40 perfectly. The instructions said to be careful to get one dimension exactly 81", and on my 40, it is 82-1/4". To be on the safe side, I used welder's clamps to mock up the installation, and everything was fine. I did drill two holes for a lower position on the top bow, but I suspect that I will be able to use the standard holes in a week or two. Very satisfied with etrailer and Bestop. 106625
