CJ 5 Soft Top

Can someone tell me if the spare tire holder placement in this picture will be a problem for the rear seal if I were to put a soft top on.

Though mine doesn't look quite like that it doesn't cause any issues for my soft top.

I've got a Supertop on mine and the rear window panel will need to seat fully across the back channel to seal. Otherwise if you don't mind cutting a notch in the back panel I suppose you could make it work.

On mine it's a solid channel from corner to corner that the tang of the rear window panel folds into

During non-summer with weather back and forth I get tired of trying to insert that bottom section down cause its so tight, and lately just leave the sides zipped down, and the bottom edge unclipped. It overlaps anyway so rain doesn't enter the cab there. Because the next day it will be hot and I need to roll it up and take the doors off, LOL. I know that doesn't answer your question, but maybe your needs are similar to mine since you're in Texas nearby.

It depends on which top you're talking about. My Supertop either uses snaps with a tailgate or a channel without a tailgate, and that's just one brand of top. They're not all the same.

Yes, I was talking about the Supertop. Getting ready to have my Jeep Rhino lined and wanted to get everything set before I had it done.......would hate for that to cause me problems when I could have fixed it before hand. If it wont cause me problems that would be great.
