ST windscreen frame used with SW top?

I never gave it much thought, but will the SW top work in conjunction with the ST windscreen frame? I have seen some write-ups of conversions, but the frame was never mentioned. Just thought I would ask, to be on the safe side.

Thanks

Chris

I could be wrong but I think the windscreen frame is the same for both SW or ST. It only differs on that piece on the top where the ST clips into. From what I understand, SW don't have that part. I'm sure someone else will chime in that can correct me if I'm wrong.

Good luck!

The SW has posts in the frame to marry with the SW Roof. Confirmed it with RDS when I was looking at redoing my headliner....

The SW frame is different than the ST frame in reference to the spacing of the top side bar at the corner of the windscreen. here is a link for an example.

Never said it could not be done. My truck is a "factory" example of that. Just wanted to illustrate the differences in the geometry.
