HERE AT QUADRATEC we field a lot of questions from Jeep enthusiasts of varying skill and experience levels, and it can be somewhat tricky trying to share our knowledge with seasoned wheelers out there - all while not leaving out those first-timers just learning about Jeeps. With that in mind, we're excited to offer a stable of videos that seek to inform (and entertain) all levels of Jeepers out there.
We call it The Quadratec Academy.
Our goal with these video lessons is to share our experience with both veteran and novice Jeep enthusiasts. Each episode of this series will serve to educate one area of expertise - from 100-level basics like hardtop removal and storage, or maintenance and trail etiquette, all the way to more complex 300-level lessons such as picking the right line, winch and recovery technique, what to do in a rollover, and everything in between.
Today's Quadratec Academy lesson may seem straightforward to many, but hardtop removal - especially during those warmer months - is a question we are asked multiple times each day. It it easy? Will I damage the Jeep? Can one person do it? What tools do I need?
Well, pulling your hardtop off isn't as simple as just lifting it off the Jeep and propping it up somewhere. But it is close. And removing that top certainly should not be intimidating. It only takes a few tools and a friend to help, plus, if you have a 2012 or newer Wrangler, you already have a spot in the back to store your top's bolts. If you don't already have a Hardtop you can check out our whole selection of hardtops here.
