@ broncousa17 Also, just to clarify, if you were hoping to take the soft top frame and fold it backward like you would with a Jeep or standard convertible car, you can't do that with the family cage I got. The rear protective hoop blocks the forward-most soft top support tube from clearing. I knew this going in since I researched with All 4 Fun and Rampage and that's fine with me. I usually run it with the windows all out and the canopy still attached.

You have two options when removing the full fabric soft top:

1. Fold both of the support bard forward and bungee or strap them to the rollbar where they end up laying, or...

2. Unbolt both of the support hoops from their lower-most attachment points and reattach them when you're ready to put the soft top back on.

I'm going to look into some small scale quick release pins like you see on trailer hitches (obviously small enough to replace the lower mounting bolts for the soft top support bolts, or something like the quick release "pressure tighteners" you use to adjust a bike seat's height or tighten/attach the wheels on most mountain bikes, etc. That would actually allow for a more sturdy, tight squeeze replacement hardware set for the 4 lower soft top support hoop mounting points and also eliminate the problem of a super quick removal of the hoop that won't clear the rollbar.

Know what I mean? See the pictures below for details.
Dude you rock thank you! Just what I wanted to see!
