The max adjustment forward and back for the windshield frame is controlled by the pan head Torx with the black plastic washer under the head in the windshield hinge. If you loosen that and loosen the bolts that are at the front of the spreader, that will show you how far you can push the top of the windshield forward.

I've seen the misalignment issue you have but only with aftermarket fenders and after someone jumper their rig and nosed it hard. The aftermarket fenders tagged a boulder and suffered a small scratch. The door opening got pushed back far enough that the back of the door overlapped the opening.

I tried that unfortunately. Loosened the windshield bolt with the plastic washer, as well as the roll cage to windshield bolts, and the roll cage torq bolt, no luck. I did three wheel it the other day between a rock and a hard place. That's the only thing I can think of.

You really should see how the door fits in the opening. Fold the windshield all of the way forward onto the hood and see how the door shuts then.

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?
