How to Take the Top off Your Jeep
There’s no better way to spend a summer day than driving a Jeep with the wind in your hair. Jeep vehicles have removable doors and tops, allowing you to drive under the sun with the wind in your hair and the music blasting. While Jeeps are suited to all seasons, they really shine in the summer. For help removing the top on your Jeep, visit Ray CDJR now!
Prioritize Safety First
While it’s possible to remove your Jeep’s hardtop by yourself, you should make sure you have the appropriate equipment to make the process as safe as possible. Jeep hardtops are big and bulky, so it’s helpful if you have someone else to help you disengage and lift the hardtop.
How to Remove the Hardtop
The first thing you’ll need to do to remove your Jeep’s hardtop is removed or disconnect all the securing points. It’s a good idea to label bags to organize all the bolts and connectors you use to make it easier to secure your hardtop later. Some Jeep hardtops come in multiple parts, so check your owner’s manual to determine in which order each component needs to be removed. If you don’t remove it properly, you could risk damaging its weatherproofing or securing ability. Do the same if you have a new Jeep model with lights or other electrical components because everything will need to be properly disconnected before removing your hardtop.
After you ensure all connection points are disconnected or removed, you’re ready to actually lift your hardtop off of your vehicle. The key to properly removing the hardtop is lifting it up clear off the supports. Once you lift the hardtop, shift it backward and away from the vehicle. This is where having someone to assist you will make it much easier and safer. Be careful not to drag the hardtop because it will damage both the hardtop and the body of your Jeep.
