soft top rear window gap ?
 
3 Attachment(s)
I just installed this new Bestop soft top and the gap between the back door and the bottom of the rear window seems pretty large, does this look normal ?? Am I missing something ??

Where is the bar that goes across the bottom of the window? The rubber seal should meet the top of the door.

The bar is there, maybe I have it turned the wrong way........I'll go check......

Yep, you're missing the rail for the lower window.

See page 3 here:

Haven't really noticed yet except that I had the doors off all summer now the full doors really close it in. It's a Bestop Sailcloth Replace-a-Top. Got it new on ebay from Morris 4x4 for $502.

i have been running soft doors since march and i am dreading putting the full doors on b/c it is going to be so cramped feeling. i can't wait for spring!

What all this blasphemous talk about such things called doors? Are you driving JK's or what?:flipoff:

Doorless in Seattle ?

Actually what made me put the full top on was a new Pavement Ends safari top I bought and after over an hour of trying to slide the safari top into the header I threw it in the garage, spit at it, called it's mother names and decided to put the full top on. The full doors just completed the winterizing process. You know how brutal winters can be here!:D

Hell - I've seen snow already....

Still topless and door-less in Texas, got to love the south!

39 degrees this morning and still doorless in NE Ohio. (since March :) )

I would've typed this earlier but I had to wait for my fingers to thaw. :eek:

It's getting to be about that time to put them back on. They're hinting at snow overnight this weekend. :banghead:
