Product Review: Rukse RK8210 Easy Removal Hard Top Knob Kit for Wrangler 2002-2013
The rear tub of the Jeep Wrangler JK and TJ have bolts that hold the top on. There are six bolts that you need a special Torx screw to remove.
This hard top knob kit replaces those hard to remove bolts with and easy twist off knob so when you are ready to remove the top you will not need to worry about a length bolt removal. Now there are two bolts up top near the roll bar under the freedom tops.
These also need to be replaced with an Allen head bolt so it is easier to remove with just a common tool you can keep in your glove box.

Impressions of Product, Review of Installation Process, and Other Thoughts
Among one of the easiest products that I’ve ever installed usually I wouldn’t bother with small parts but this one caught my eye. This kit though just a replacement is such a unique and simply manufactured product.
You wouldn’t think it would be a big deal but when I installed these and was testing ease of use compared to the stock knobs that come with the jeep I noticed it was a lot less strain on my hand. Normally such things wouldn’t bother me, however it is a Jeep and I plan on taking the top off a lot this year since I live in a season less area.
Go to Amazon to purchase this hard top knob kit from Rukse part number RK8210 with free shipping.

We give this item (Wrangler hard top knob kit) a 4 out of 5 stars as it is very cool product and great on the scale getting it a 4 we knocked it down just a little because it does requires using two screws that are easy off, but we hear they are coming out with a new kit to help with that.
