Yet Another Soft Top Question

Searched and searched here for a photo to help and couldn't find one so I post this one for our review. Does this gap between the window shield frame and frame look right spatially?

Last few times I have run with top up, the wind noise is definitely different which may equate to a leak experience I don't want. I understand there is I channel for diversion - thinking air dynamic pressures when subject to rain.

Thanks in advance for any responses

When you look at the Jeep head on, does the soft top header stick up a little bit above the windshield?

Top down right now - so could please respond to both "Yes" and "No"? My gut responses would be "No".

Thanks again for any responses

I'm gonna say no.

My top is down right now also. We finally have some dry weather forcast for the Chicago area.

I did measure the ammount of rubber that is visible between the soft top and the windshield frame when the top is up, best guess of course. Judging by the crimp and dust in the windshield headder, there is about a quarter of an inch of rubber visible when the top helps. It looks like your soft top is too far back.

Try latching the front of the soft top first, then pull down on the top of the rear window to attach the sail panels.

It looks correct, compared to how mine looks as well. I had a wind noise this weekend after putting mine up quickly before a thunderstorm. I pinched the seal in the center. Unlatching the front, lifting up and resetting the front lip fixed the problem.

Upon further review, the call on the field will be overturned.

I put the top up last night, the spacing you have, looks like what I have. The spot I measured to with the top down was incorrect. Sorry for the false info.
