I am in NC, but I have installed one twice if you need any help via email just let me know. The '94s are a bit tricky, and both my installs were on '94s. Do you have the drilling templates? The rivnuts are a bitch. I used JB Weld on them.... Anyway, if you need anything, let me know.

Dont forget there is a full set of install directions in the Tech Articles section. Plus if you look below in the Similar Thread box, there is another thread that had a lot of info.

I'll try to do some thread merging this weekend.

thanks guys, haha too bad you're all east coast.
i had the rivnuts put in today and hopefully will get the actual top on in the morning.
i've heard i need another set of hands and the better part of a day to get it all on (at least for the first time).

from the instructions in the tech section it looks pretty straightforward however my concern is cutting into the fiberglass, i just dont want anything to crack.

Hey James,

Late notice but I can help you if you need it this weekend. Call my house. 760 598 4900 Sat is out but Sun is all good. I have to warn you that I have never done a fiberglass install but I am a quick study. Then after I get my truck fully done we can head out to a trail!

James, my only advice is to take your time installing the top and don't rush, other wise you will break the top. Those things are so sensitive.
