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.

In this episode, we'll go over removing those front hard top panels from your 2018 JL Wrangler. No, you are definitely not stuck with those things on the vehicle at all times. They can be removed quickly and easily - hence the 'Freedom Panel' name. We'll show you how. If you're looking to purchase a hardtop you can check out all the hardtops we sell here.
