Soft top header bar from an 08

So I have a 2013 jk and I bought a factory top off an 08. Everything seemed great until the first rain came and I got some water through the front of the top. Upon doing some research I've come across that the header bar on these tops are plastic and often bend, which mine definitely is. I've seen many people have had their plastic bar replaced with a metal one by the dealership. Is something I should pursue or have I missed that window to get one?


Oh and I've had my jeep for a few months now and absolutely love it. Glad I finally got my first one.

does the 08 header bar not interfere with the footman's loop behind your rear view mirror? It may be pushing the header up and opening a spot for water to get in.

I don't think it did. I took a pretty good look around when I was trying to troubleshoot. Maybe ill put the soft top back on again to check, had to take it off for the rain yesterday..
