    Video Review & Installation

    Ryan: This Suntop top in black diamond is for those of you that have a two-door 2007 to 2018 JK that are looking for a the top that's gonna be a little bit different than some of the other ones out there. This is going to come with a little bit different style frame to it. A little bit less of a frame really, and this kit is going to be a little bit more of a modular kit. So you can actually get the three rear windows separate from the top. So you can zip those windows out just from the top as a safari style top, which isn't completely unique to Suntop but it is going to be a little bit of a different setup than some of the other choices out there. This is going to be pretty easy one out of three wrenches for the installation and we're gonna show you how to do it in just a second. When you're shopping for soft tops, you're gonna find a couple of different categories. You're going to find two categories that are going to be factory style tops. One is going to be a complete top including the frame, the other is just the soft materials if you already have a frame and then the third category of tops is going to be something like this where it is not a factory top. So this is going to give you a fastback style. It's going to allow you to remove those three rear windows. It's not going to have any sort of Sunrider feature built into it and this is going to come with all of its own hardware. So, some of those other tops out there will either require you to use some factory soft top hardware, will include some factory soft top style hardware with the kit. Any combination of those two. This kit is going to include all of the hardware that you need to get it installed on your Jeep even if you're coming from a hardtop and it's not going to be factory style. So, these pieces here, these actually make up your door surrounds which is going to be a completely different than most, if not all, of the other tops out there. Most, if not all of them, are going to use a factory style door surround. So, that's the same for the windshield header here. It's going to come with its own windshield header that is nothing like a factory style windshield header. It's just a whole different setup here. I'm not saying that because it's good or because it's bad, it's just something that makes this top from Suntop a little bit different from some of the other choices out there. Overall, as a brand, I think this is a very well-built top. When you look at all the stitching, when you feel the material, when you see the style of the zippers that are included here, the thickness of the windows, everything does seem to be pretty high-quality and I do think that's gonna be reflected in the price. This top is going to come in at around that $370 mark. Like I said, that's for this...what, essentially, is a modular top but it's both pieces that you need to make a full fastback style top. So, think you're gonna get a pretty good deal here with this option from Suntop. I mentioned before this is an easy install. Let me show you how to do it. Speaker 1: Tools require for this install: a 14 and 13-millimeter wrench, an extension, 3/8 drive, a T30 Torx bit, optional is an impact. So the first stop to getting your Suntop top in place is to get your old one out of here. We're gonna start with the windows and the back glass as well. So, unzip these. There it is, and open up the door. Get that out of here. All right. Now we're gonna repeat that on the other side. Get this window out of here. So next up we're gonna be removing the back glass section of our top and one thing you can do is just grab up top here. Push down a little bit to release that corner. Help you out a little bit. Now we're going to unzip our glass and then open up our tailgate and remove our glass. So since our new Suntop top is bowless, what we're gonna do is bring our factory top down and then disconnect both of our bows and frame and get this top out of here. So to get our top out of the way, what we're gonna do is flip up these back corners on top of the top, grab the front and start bringing it back. All right. Now, as I said, that this top is a bowless and frameless. So what we're gonna do is get rid of our frame up here. There are a couple of twist little bolts here and then our frame comes out of place. Do that on both sides. All right. Next up we're gonna take our T30 Torx bit and remove our bows. There's gonna be two screws holding in the bow on each side. Do that on both sides. Now that we have our bows disconnected from our roll bar, I've got Ryan over there. You guys all know him. We're just gonna lift up on this thing and get it out of here. So what we're gonna do now is install our new Suntop door surrounds and you can see that this door surround right here is keyed. So we're just gonna position it in here and twist it around till it sets down, which is right there. Bring it up. Bring the stud through the back hole and then the front here. We're not gonna put our bolt through yet. We're gonna get our top on and get that tab over and then put our hardware through. And we're gonna do that for both sides. So we have our soft top on the table here and this is going to be our new header piece. So the traditional header panel is nice and wide. It's gonna have all those screws. This just has Velcro. So what we're gonna do is wedge it into each corner then set that Velcro on the top of it. So I'm gonna push this corner in at the same time. Try to use some pressure to make sure it's seated all the way to the front and attach that Velcro. All right. So with our new header panel into our top, let's go ahead and put this towards the front of our Jeep. This may be a little tough with one person but you'll be all right. Obviously, that header panel and those tabs are going to be towards the front. Let's go ahead and get this back here. All right. That will work there and we can start our bolts for our header panel here. Come on. All right. And then the bolt will go through there with a washer and nut. Now we're gonna repeat all that on the other side. So what we're gonna do now is install our windows before rolling our top down. It's, kind of, backwards but this is the way Suntop does it. I have Meredith over there. We are going to bring the windows up and over our roll bar, make sure it's over our tire and Meredith is actually gonna set her side in first. All right. So Meredith is in over there. I'm going to give it a little tension over here and start my corner. So with our windows in place, what we're gonna do next is take this Velcro and put it around our door surrounds. Now, your roll bar may catch the hook and loops or the Velcro. Just get that around it and do that on both sides. Now we're gonna zip our back window into place. I'm gonna start at the top and then get the sides on. So it's a little tight up here but should be able to get it. All right. So we are after the zippers on the side here, gonna make sure we have the right orientation before we start them. We're gonna zip about half way and then get the other side and then zip them both down. So, do this on the other side. So what we're gonna do now is install some Velcro onto our tailgate and that's what actually holds the back glass or the back plastic onto our tailgate section. Just gonna start on this side here. Line it up on this side. Take my knife and cut it up. So now that we have our windows and back plastic or glass into place, we are going to roll the back portion of our top into place. Now, there is a bar back here so it should sit evenly and you're gonna have a couple straps as well that go down here to the corners. Let's get that other one from underneath there. Make sure that's nice and straight. We're gonna run this strap down here to our clasp below it and then underneath. That way we can give it some tension. Gonna do that on both sides. So our final step is connect this piece of fabric, our roof, to our door bar and we're just gonna go on to the outside there and we're gonna do this on both sides and in the front here. Just get this little piece as well. Go around and back up. There you go. Gonna do that on both sides. That's gonna wrap up my install, and for all things Wrangler, keep it here at
