Hello all,

Got my JL Sahara 3 days ago. I was hearing a rattling from my rear driver side premium soft top window. I figure it just needed to be put in place more firmly.

I removed the rear window and noticed the rear driver side post in not going fully up into the top. I would say it is off almost a quarter of an inch. Since it is not sitting firmly in the top it is rattling back and forth. It seems to me the rear driver side top is too high and not holding the post firmly. Comparing it to the passenger side you can definitely see they are aligned a bit differently in the top.

Anyone else notice this? I can try to post some images later. Trying to get in touch with dealer now.

Measuring the outside my rear top is a 1/4" higher on the driver side. You can see in the photos below how the driver side post does not sit firmly in the top.
