Thanks in advance!

Hi SJ, yea they don’t recommend it with Sky One because there are alignments that go with having that roof. From what I’ve read it’s very tough to realign the roof. I personally won’t ever try it.

I actually think you can't really do it because the top traps the header seal on the corners that wrap over the doors a bit. On a hard top the freedom panels come off and they are free to rotate forward, and same with the soft top. Pretty sure you would have to loosen or remove the side rail bolts on the power top for the front of the rails to lift enough to let the seal pass by it. Then the top is just there scooping air with the side rails still in place anyway.

This sucks to service/check the header seal, as this is a typical leak source.
