looks like you might need door surrounds. My top doesnt have/need door surrounds and uses the weather stripping around the door to seal against the top.

You might need to hold the door still and bind the frame of the new windows at the top rear of the frame till it fits. Are they new frames to

Yea from that top pick you just gotta bend the tops of the frames man like I said before I had the same prob with mine when I got new skins for the frames. I didn't realize it but I kinda warped em as I was putting the skins on. And you gotta remember that it's a jeep and nothing you buy after market for it is going to fit like a glove adjust,adjust and adjust until it fits man hope you're dad don't sell it cause of that

Not sure what it's called but does it have the black rubber spacer thing on the tub that would make the door frames sit higher? Mine is missing one side and I had to use washers to make the door shut correctly.
