Are the 2 bows for the cab different sizes?
My brand new N-L-R top fits a little loose at the back end.
However, both my bows are the same size. I am guessing both are the forard ones.
Tried looking at some photos but are hard to tell from a distance but looks to be higher in the back.

Barry speaks the truth.

It took a week or so for my brand new top to fit the way I hoped. Let it sit in the weather installed for a while. Some water seems to help it shrink too but maybe not with brand new waterproofing.

The instructions say never o let it dry off the truck due to shrinkage.
I was going to try using a pressure washer to really soak it then put it on and let it dry. Just not today! its a "freezing the ball off a brass monkey"

It might be difficult to install after soaking. Tough to slide the front bead along the windshield channel. I would install dry and then soak. It WILL shrink. May take a couple of soaking cycles. Robert-CA
