INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

Before you begin, the temperature of the Island Topper (Roll Bar Top) should be above 70 degrees Fahrenheit. We suggest laying the Island Topper in the sunlight for 1 hour before installation.

1. Locate the front edge of the Island Topper (Roll Bar Top) As seen in (Fig 1).


2. Place the Windshield Channel inside the top of the windshield. Screw in the Windshield Channel, working from one end to the other (Figure 2).


3. Place the Island Topper (Roll Bar Top) on top of Jeep. Insert front edge into the Windshield Channel, working from one side of vehicle to the other (Figure 3).


4. Locate the Velcro straps on each side of the roll bar. Wrap the flaps around roll bar and fasten (Figure 4). Do both driver and passenger sides of the vehicle.


NOTE: The rear straps can be fastened in two different methods:

Option 1 shows how to attach the Island Topper to your vehicle using J-Clips.

Option 2 shows how to attach the Island Topper to your vehicle around the rear shoulder seat belts.


Option 1 (with J-Clip)

5. Feed the rear corner straps through the J-Clips (Figure 5) and place the J-Clip under a convenient attachment point, such as a rear corner rail or floor loop (Figure 6).


6. Wrap the straps around the roll bar or seat belt hanger, then feed the loose end through the buckle and pull tight (Figure 7). Be sure not to interfere with the seat belts safety and operation. Warning: Place the strap under the seat belt. Never install over the seat belt strap.

7. Re-adjust Velcro and tighten all straps to assure a wrinkle-free fit.


Option 2 (without J-Clip)

8. Wrap the straps around the seat belt shoulder harness and roll bar. Feed the loose end through the buckle on the other end and pull tight (Figure 8). Be sure not to interfere with the seat belts safety and operation. Warning: Place the strap under the seat belt. Never install over the seat belt strap.
