Will a 97-02 Windjammer fit my 2005?

I got my hands on a brand new Bestop windjammer for free. It was originally for a 1998 and I have an 05. Is there a way to make this fit?

The strap length is about the only difference I am aware of since 2003 and newer TJs have the much thicker padding around the rollbars which requires longer Windjammer straps. The Windjammer off my '97 didn't fit my '04 when it still had that extra padding around the roll bar but it did once I removed the padding. But I don't recall if I had cut excess length off the straps, have you tried it yet to see if the straps can make it all the way around the more heavily padded rollbar?

I figured the extra padding would be the only difference.. I haven't tried it yet but will give it a shot this week. Thanks
