What brand is that? I have had a bestop and it had adjustments on the pins that sit in the door, which helped with fit. Also, that door skin looks deftective. I would see about having it replaced under warranty.

My Smitty (New 7 months ago) isn't quite as bad, but close. I push on the top-rear of the soft-door to close it, and it's better I've tried removing and adjusting the door skins, but it's just junk IMO.

BTW, my rear window came 'un-welded' at the bottom, and the factory had no advice... nothing! I stitched it myself.

My Smitty fits the same way too and the zipper broke on the back window within 2 months. Cheap junk!

It wont change much, I have smittybilt uppers on a pavement ends top and looks the exact same way except for the top part, mine fits a tad bit better at the top. The Pavement ends uppers fit fine but the zippers gave out after 4.5 years. Smittybilt crap does not fit right at all.
