Hard top from 2012 rubi to 2010 islander

So I am selling the hard top from my 2012 rubicon. A potential buyer came by to look at it today. She has a 2010 islander. The rear guide pins did not match up to the holes in her tub. The pins are about 2-3 inches forward of her holes.
She still wants the top but I'm wondering if the guide pins are just that guide pins. Or do they also serve a securing function? She wants me pop out those pins so they're not an issue.
I thought the tops fit universally from 2007-2012. Is it because its an islander?

I have an Islander and also thought the tops were the same. In fact, I was thinking I would keep my hard top when trading it in, but I did notice the rear Windows are different on the 2011's on- the back glass is wider, which might change geometry enough to move the pin position. In any case, given the looseness of the pins and 8 bolts, I don't think not having one set of pins would do much.
