Quick question

[QUOTE=ZGKiwi;27315522]What am I doing wrong here?
Can't get the top of the windows to stay flush with doors. Seems there's nothing to hold them tight to the plastic pieces except the rubber of the door.

Is this a new top? 2 or 4 door? I have the NX twill for my JKU. It takes some "working in" almost like a baseball glove. Make sure everything is almost completely unzipped. Work with it a bit, and it will come very easy. Any more questions, and I would be happy to work with yo to solve it.

The "front sides" of each window should have a "tab" that you have to "fold" into an indentation behind each door.

That little tab should tuck into the door surround and actually gave the rear of the Jeep

So in a brief moment of stupidity I discovered that soft top in sunrider mode does not fit in work garage

Snapped off the little round plastic tab that clicks into the door surround.

Looks like that plastic assembly just screws on to the bow arm but so far I'm having no luck identifying that part number.

Wondering if anyone knows of a more detailed part diagram availability than this

Jeep Wrangler JK Soft Top Hardware Parts 4 Door | Quadratec

Starting to look like I might have to order an entire set of both front side bow arms (part #2 in link above) just to get passenger side plastic piece.

I've researched everything I can, and it appears that the only difference between the Supertop NX and the Mopar OEM is the Spring assist? And from looking at the install guides, spring assist is only for the 4 Door?

So on a 2 Door there is no difference between the Mopar OEM top and the Supertop NX? I'm looking to replace my Trektop NX with an option that's easier to go full convertible on the go. The New Trektop NX Glide looks cool but I'm still not sure there's an easy way to roll up those side windows on the go (looks like they are still molded/rigid in the back) and I'm not a fan of the cargo/headroom space I lose in the rear with the fastback on the regular Trektop NX.

So zero difference between 2 Door Mopar OEM and Supertop NX (no spring assist either)? Just want to be sure I'm not missing anything, $500 less MSRP for the bestop version regular or twill is a significant savings
