The sport bar tubes are a larger diameter on the newer Wranglers. I think you need to remove the padding or slide it down to seal the back. Just an FYI, I have one on my 99 and it is OK. I like the look of it, but would not purchase another one.

Let me start by saying that my 99 is my DD and I go to customer sites, usually dressed up. I got the halftop as a permanent replacement to the worn out original factory soft top. The header does not fit well on the windshield frame and has gaps at both corners, so when you drive in the rain there is a stream of water running in. The extra flap on the top of the door surround is to short and I have not been able to get either set of my uppers to seal tight. You can push the seat back far enough, and I am 6' 2".

If this was on my 06 Unlimited which is my toy, the top would be perfect. But for my DD, I was a little disappointed for the money I spent. I know a lot of people are going to read this a say su@@ it up, its a Jeep.
