Door Surround Adjustment?

Couldn't find a solution in a search. Problem is my passenger door soft upper hits the door surround in the rear and the top-rear. There is a little extra space in the front. It's as though the soft upper needs to move forward about a quarter inch and down a little in the back to allow the door to close without sticking.

The steel lower door seems to be aligned OK.

The opposite is true on the driver's side -- there is more room between the soft upper and the surround in the rear. The driver's side door opens, closes, and seals correctly though so it's not a problem.

There does not seem to be any way to adjust the door surround that I can see. Is the proper fix to bend the steel frame of the door upper until it centers more properly in the surround? Anyone do this?

Thanks in advance.

I had a similar issue and if I remember right bestop tells you to bend and tweak to help align them. Just don't get carried away my brother snapped a weld once doing this maneuver.

I had a similar problem, but both my upper doors sat lower in the front than the back. I used some 3/8" setscrew shaft collars to adjust them where I wanted them.

You can adjust the windshield angle that may help

Adjusting the windshield angle on that side fixed it perfectly.
