In case anyone in the same scenario stumbles across this post in the future, it works! No problems at all getting the hard top on over the folded soft top
Did you already pick it up?

Could you please post pics? Thank you!
Sorry, I already have pulled the soft top out and it's a bit more work than i'd like to re-install just for pics

Yup. Everything went well. After removing soft top gutter rails and door surrounds and then folding down soft top, the hard top slid right over the top. It was a little difficult to access the rear hardtop bolts with the soft top folded under, but got them in eventually.

It's probably not a great setup permanently due to the potential for rub on the soft top / hard top -- I wrapped it in a few towels for the trip.
