Fire Extinguisher mounted on JKU roll bar, w soft top?

Does it interfere with the lowering of the soft top?

Seems like if it's right on the back side of the bar, it miss both pivot points on either side.

Again, on a 4dr jk

Anyone experience issues or GTG?

I have a buddy who has his mounted on the farthest back bar, on the back of the bar. He has no issues with getting the soft top up and down

I found that the flashlight strap and extinguisher strap for the roll bar made it more difficult, although not impossible, to smoothly move the soft top up and down. Instead I positioned the straps to the left and right of the back seats along the horizontal bars, just behind the rear doors. Extinguisher is on the left side, so in an emergency I could actually get to the extinguisher there faster than if it were all the way in the rear on the angled bars.
