The body of the pad would not fit between roll bar and top.
For a long time my wife has been complaining about not having a handle to help her get into the jeep. This handle setup was perfect. Fit around the roll bar and cushion and did not interfere with the hardtop. It's also great that it has 3 straps versus 2 which keeps it from pulling together when used. WELL DONE!
Great product. They help my wife get in and out.
