Welcome to the forum by which all others are defined. Glad to have you along for the "crawl." I have an '04 soft top and, surprisingly, the addition of a particular door entry guard from Quadratec did actually tighten the fit of the door around the frame. I didn't have that with my '01. I still don't see how it would make a difference with a hard top versus a soft top. Again, glad to have you on the team.
