    Another thing to try is lay in the back seat and put your feet on the roof and push. Thats how I got mine off.

    Don't forget there are 2 small guide pins. you'll have to pick the top up a bit and then slide it.

    I did the same thing, worked like a charm.

    I was the first person to remove the top on that truck, which surprised me until i realized a very old couple owned it since it was brand new.
