Mine is thick , I think if it wrapped over the top fitting in would be a no go . I do like how it looks over the rail and I guess thats the advantage to shooting it yourself as you can control how thick you spray it .

Im not going to have side windows in 99% of the time. It is a little difficult to get in but it fits. I tried to go as thick as i could without gooping up the rail.

Here is the question of the day. Stock dash or sheet metal dash?

Maybe. I don't have too. I could make the heat work. I ditched the a/c already.

How thick is your guys liner? I'm positive with my liner there's no way the windows would fit even though I still have control over the thickness.

I'm thinking of doing on top of the rail since I run windows quite often. I've scratched the rail quite a bit from throwing crap in the back.

Why is the soft top not fit well? The liner is on top of the rail correct?

My top rail was a tight fit for a while until the liner wore down a little and smoothed out over time. Now it's good.
