I had a Jeep dealer install my new top. I am not sure what steps to take to put the top down. I didnt see any instructions on the WWW. Thanks

The Bestop # B5160337 Supertop is very simple to fold down or even remove for open air driving, once the initial installation is completed on your 1993 Jeep Wrangler.
In order to fold down the top, you would first open the zippers on the side curtains, and pull the plastic strip on the bottom of the Side Curtains out of the Belt Rails. You will leave the rear corners of the top attached to the corner rails. Then, unfasten the hook and loop strips at the front of the side curtains and release them from the Vertical Retainer.
Next, fold up the side curtains onto the top and release the hook and loop fasteners on the flaps above your doors. Unsnap the top from the rear bow, and then release the locking tabs on the bow releases and fold the rear bow down. Release the horizontal rod from the windshield bracket and remove the vertical rod from its retainer mount and you will be able to lay the bow assembly down on the rear of the vehicle.
To finish up, you would unfasten the top from the windshield and lay it down on the body. Make sure
that the rear corners of the top are tucked under the rear bow so they do not flap in the wind. Fold the top in
half from front to back and continue folding it until the top is about 1 foot wide at the rear of the vehicle. Secure the top by clipping the tie downs into the belt rails on the sides.
When you are setting up for open air driving, make sure that the supporting hardware system is disconnected from the windshield bracket and folded flat to the rear of the vehicle before driving. The vertical and horizontal rods should be snapped into the plastic clips located on the inside of both bow mount brackets. Wrap the elastic straps around the bows and insert the plastic strip into the side belt rail. Never operate the vehicle with the fabric removed and the hardware in the fully erected position, or it can be damaged.
You can view the installation instructions for the top at the link below, if needed.
