Softtop for Wrangler

I have a bestop top for my 90 Wrangler. I do not have the instructions for it. I need to know which way the pieces that bolt on near the doors go. I could put it so the the post would be closer to the inside of the vehicle or so the post would be closest to the outside of the vehicle. These pieces are the pieces that support the vertical posts around the doors. They bolt right on top of the rail.

Re: Softtop for Wrangler

What your describing sounds like a factory soft top for a YJ with full doors. It's made by Bestop. I haven't noticed much difference either way, but I mount mine inside because the door still seals OK, and it's less compression on the weather striping.

Re: Softtop for Wrangler

My top has a gap up near the top rear of the door (along the post in question). It doesn't seem to effect it much if I turn the piece facing out or in. Maybe I am doing something wrong or the guy has the wrong top on there. I have adjusted my doors and it doesn't seem to help any. Any suggestions?

Re: Softtop for Wrangler

The pieces you speak of face inward towards the inside of the tub otherwise the doors don't shut right. Hope this helps.

Re: Softtop for Wrangler

Is there a gap because the door is not sealing tight against the top or because the shape of the door does not match the openning in the top? If it's the latter, and you have half doors with uppers instead of full steel doors, it's my understanding they don't match the factory top.
