Hard top won't fit...

I just got a used hard-top that fits perfectly on the car it came off of. However, on mine it won't clamp down completely on one side. Is there any adjustments I could do? Our Boxes are '98.

Any help appreciated.

I don't own a hardtop, but from what I've read on this and other forums, there are a multitute of adjustments that can and probably should be made to make the top fit precisely. You may wish to use the search feature for "hard top" and see what you come up with.

Hardtops tend to mold to the cars they are on. Your hardtop molded to the previous car, and now it needs to mold to your car. It normally takes about two weeks to get the placement and adjustments right. There are five bolts on each side you can adjust, try a search for more details this question has been asked before.

Do a search. There are hex bolts on the part affixes to car. Those loosen and allow you to adjust.
