Snap and a belt rail top

Curious if you can run a Tickford top (with snaps) and a belt rail set up on the same truck, can you have snaps and rails installed or do they conflict?

I have heard this said, but when I look at this I failed to see how you could put the snaps on the belt rail and have the top fit properly. You'd effectively raise the snaps in order to mount them without interfering with the belt rail and the top would be too loose.

I have snaps and the belt rail (always assumed the previous owner addred the rail). Never tried it but as the snaps are below the belt rail, do not see it to be an issue. The profile of the belt rail is low so space should not be an issue

Interesting. I'll try dig up a rail tomorrow and take a picture of it on mine relative to the snaps. IIRC my snaps are higher.

So perhaps my truck is different from others, but this is what I have. I'd have to move my snaps up and I think my tickford would be loose. If I moved the rail down it would be too low for a bestop/badger and look goofy to boot.
