I have a 97 wrangler, with a hard top and i was looking to trade someone for a soft top in good shape... well i found one.. i went over there, we put it on and everything matched up perfectly, except the doors! it had a good sized gap between the door suround and the door?... is there a solution to this, or do i need to find a 97 soft top?

i know its an uneven trade but i just wanted a soft top fast and i wanted to be able to be picky... i could sell it for about $700 im sure but it would be a pain, and pluss i just joined the club and i dont want to take anybodies money.

Full doors or half on your Jeep? Did his have full or half? Where's the picture of the problem?

*Nobody is saying there is anything to go between your door and it's surrounds, they were initially saying that you needed the surrounds.
