Squirrel 442 That should fix it then, and you're welcome

fire66dave No, it's not loose... Hey thanks for the tip, I'll try it out!

Squirrel 442 Per instructions you grab each corner of the metal frame on top and bend the bar inward (toward the jeep) until you have a good seal.

For comparison, when I pop the latch to open the door from inside my jeep the doors spring open. I have zero leaks and zero flapping.

Just bend it a little at a time until it has a tight seal.

Your door fabric/window isn't loose is it?

fire66dave Yes, just like yours

Squirrel 442 Is the seal good? You need to bend the upper bar frame a little so the door seals against the top.

Edit: are your windows like mine?

fire66dave Maybe I should clarify: it's my door windows, and it flaps on the upper part

Squirrel 442 Here is a pic, I also have a Best Top. You can see the spot were the bar was rubbing the window.

Squirrel 442 I went to Lowes a bought some pipe insulator padding to wrap the rear bars that the windows flap against. No more flapping and it does not look bad. I'll snap a pic, the padding also works good on go kart roll bars

Speedy4x4 Mine flaps only if I did a crappy job putting the top up.

Then with the door windows I sit them in the sun for some time before I wrap them around their frames

I call this a blessing, there is nothing better then keeping the wife AWAY from my Jeep.

AKohler883 Does it flap when completely zipped up ? Mine typically oy does it if I have a side window down and the air goes back and can't get out.

fire66dave Lol! Absolutely the best remedy...kinda sucks in the rain tho... Or below 55 degrees
