windshield is NOT strong enough - that's the issue. It is strong enough to stand on its own and keep water out, but to have another construction on top of it - is to have it fail pretty soon. This is one of the reasons the dodger is being replaced. The hard top would rely on posts/arches that connect to the cabin top. The issue is - placing arches in convenient locations creates top that does not match the line of the windshield very well. So, there are a few locations where the connecting pieces would have to connect to underside of hard top rather than the edge. These hard tops (Wavestopper, you can google them) really are designed for everything to connect to the edge, and we can't figure out a good way to attach zippers or cloth panels or whatever to underside, especially in the area where it is bent.
