Top arch with safari top

Just removed my Bestop Supertop NX to install a safari top for the summer. The Supertop came with a top arch that spans across the passenger compartment to help stretch the top tight and prevent water from pooling. I left the arch on when I installed the safari top, but now I have a low point between the top arch and the sound bar that looks like it would actually allow water to pool. Anyone have a similar setup? Should I remove the top arch when running with the safari top?
Thanks!

I would take it out and see if you still have the low spot. If you do then the arch can stay in, if the low point goes away, then I say leave it out and put it back when you put the Supertop back in.

I have the Trektop NX, but it has the same arch over the drive and passenger seats. When I drive, the top catches air and it doesn't even touch the arch, so it only does anything when the Jeep is sitting still anyway.

Hope this helps!
