Hey, guys. So today I'm here with the Smittybilt Soft Top Storage Bag, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So everybody loves putting their soft top back in the summer months to enjoy that open air driving experience with that nice weather. However, if you fully take your soft top off of your Wrangler, you run into that predicament where you wanna store it away but you don't wanna damage your soft top. Now, if you're a hard top owner and you're looking to put your hard top back on in the winter months, you also run into that same predicament. Now this soft top storage bag is gonna be a perfect solution for just that. It's going to fit your whole soft top with layered fabric in between to protect your windows so they're not getting damaged or scratched while they're inside the bag.This is also gonna have a nice handle on the top here and be very durable, making it very easily portable so you can take it wherever you like. So this is gonna be roughly $80 and there's really nothing else like it on the site right now and I do really like this soft top bag because it is made of quality materials. So with that being said, there are other bags like this for just your rear windows but that doesn't solve the issue for your complete soft top. Now, this is gonna be an all-in-one bag. This is gonna store everything that you need, be very durable, and keep it very safe and I definitely think it's worth that $80.Now install's gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You're gonna need two tools in order to get your soft top off of your Wrangler. However, with this, you need no tools at all, it takes no time at all. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now.So to kick this off, we're gonna remove all of our windows and then remove our soft top so we can put them all in our storage bag so I'm gonna start with the side windows here. So we're gonna go ahead and take off our rear window. So go ahead and open up your tailgate. You can unlatch your plastic tabs underneath your belt rail retainer, underneath your tailgate retainer. Pop off your tailgate bar and unzip your top. And we can fully remove the rear window. So now we're gonna go ahead and hop in our Jeep, unlatch our header, and fold the soft top back as per Jeep's instructions. So once our soft top is half folded all the way down, we can take a T30 Torx bit and remove the two Torx bolts that are holding in our arms.So after we do that, we'll be able to fold the soft top back over the back of our Wrangler. So after the soft top's folded all the way back, we can lift it off of our Wrangler. So now that our soft top is completely off, we can go ahead and move to our soft top bag. Now, this is gonna have zippers on either side as well as zippers on the top here. So we're just gonna go ahead and unzipper them all. Then we'll be able to fold the front of the bag over and expose all of the inside of the bag. Now, you're gonna have multiple felt layers. These are gonna be for your windows to make sure that they don't get scratched, they don't get damaged while they're inside the bag, which I do really like about this. Let's go ahead and just start putting our windows in. Gonna start with our rear window. Gonna fold a felt layer over, protect that vinyl window. Take our next side windows, lay that in, fold over our next layer. Do the same thing with the other side window.So after that, we can install our top or get our top in the soft top bag. Now, you wanna make sure that your top is as flat as possible. So now with the soft top as flat as possible, you're gonna move it onto our soft top bag and it's easiest to do this on the floor. Now the whole soft top will fit inside except for our bows here. So after we have it completely flat, we're just gonna fold it one more time to make sure that it fits inside of our bag. Fold it back, kind of shimmy it down and flatten it out so it'll be able to reach up here for this top zipper. Now we can fold this part over and start to zipper the sides. And then we can zipper up the top here. So I'm just gonna take our covers and put them over. So this is for our arms. Make sure that they don't get damaged. You're gonna have a little strap here that you can tighten that down onto.So now we can attach our longer covers for our outside arms. And with a four-door, it may fit a little bit differently. Now, we have a two-door so it's a little bit more compact and that's why our zipper is hanging out down a little bit farther. That's okay. Everything's still gonna be covered. Everything's still gonna be in one spot and protected. We're gonna do the other side. So this is even gonna have a handle on the top to make it very easily portable. So after everything is all together and all zippered up and strapped down, then you're all set to go. So that's gonna wrap it up for my short review and install.
