First my great appreciation for those on this board. I've had my 95 YJ for a couple of weeks now and information found on wranglerforum.com has been invaluable.
My jeep came with a hard top and hard uppers with sliding glass windows. I bought a Rampage soft top "complete" kit with hardware (bows, brackets, etc) and soft upper doors.
Everything went pretty well until I got to the end and put the uppers on. Two problems:
1) Same situation for both doors. After sliding the pins down into the holes the frame is crooked. It is too high in the front and too low in the back. It doesn't even come close to closing (this is not a fabric adjustment issue, it's the actual frame). The only way I was able to get it to line up was to drop a 3/4" screw down in the rear hole to lift the back end up. The front end is close but seems like the pin needs to have about 1/4" inch cut off of it. Am I doing something comletely wrong here? (I called Rampage but they haven't returned my call). I removed the interior door pannel to make sure there wasn't something in there that wasn't supposed to be and looked in the front hole to make sure there wasn't something in there (like a screw). The hard uppers I had fit perfectly (front pin on those is a bit shorter).
2) The last step of the instructions was to clip the door fabric into the retaining channels on the steel half doors. I don't have any retaining channels on the doors. Obviouly they were removed by a PO for the hard top/uppers. I've looked all over online and couldn't find any OEM for sale. Only the Stainless steel ones from Smitty-Built. I went ahead and bought those. There were no instructions, just the channels and screws. Having looked a pictures I layed the channel up agains the door. IT DOESN'T FIT! The curve is about the right angle, but it seems there should be a "twist" to it as well to stay flush with the door. The pictures online look like there is a twist, but the channels don't have it. I could put it in a vice and try to bend it, but I think it very unlikely that I could get that twist just right.
Any ideas or suggestions would very much be appreciated.
