    WRITE-UP : JL Wrangler SOFT TOP SUNRIDER POSITION



    One of the things I love most about the Jeep JL Wrangler soft top is that the front half can be opened up just like a targa top or sunroof. Known as the Sunrider Position, it just takes a couple of minutes to get you looking at the sky and the following write-up will show you just how easy it is to do.

    Instructions
    1. To begin the transformation of your soft top into the Sunrider Position, fold both of your sun visors down and push them toward the windshield. Then, pull the soft top header latches downward and make sure that the hooks are disengaged from their receivers.


    2. Standing on the outside of your Jeep or standing on the door sill if needed, grab the front edge of your soft top and begin lifting it up.


    3. Continue to fold the Sunrider portion of your top all the way back until it is resting on the rear half of your soft top.


    4. Before you start driving around, you need to make sure that the bows are secured in place using the 2 velcro straps that can be found in the center console of your Jeep.


    That's all there is to it! Enjoy

    NOTE: All the information and the images used on this write-up can be found in the JL Wrangler Owners Manual. My purpose for posting it here is to make it easier to access on a mobile device and allow people to use it as a quick reference guide.

    This is the reason why I got the soft top here in Florida. I can in seconds have the sky open on the way to a store and in seconds put it back to secure belongings or because of weather. I love it.

    Definitely something you'd want in a place that gets a lot of sun

    Tried this with the side and rear windows still in. The side windows kept blowing out when I reached 40mph.

    I had the same issue. They didnít blow out but it sure sounded like it would if I kept driving. I also have a similar issue if I open the windows and the back is open, I get a flapping sound from the second cross bar from the back. Now I just keep the back open and pieces in the garage. All fixed :-).

    Does this happen even if you have all the passenger windows down?
