roof line size for high top: 1988 (3rd gen) vs 2009 (4th gen)

I was about to pick up a high top for my 2009 e350 extended and the measurements on this high top are 4"+ wider and 2"+ inches longer. This topper was for a 1988 extended model...

Were the Gen 3's really like over 4" wider up top?... meaning the gen 4's curved inward at least 2" on each side? and 1-2" shorter front to back... Is this correct??!

If so, UGH, I'm bummed!

Yes, the '75-'91 (I think I have those years correct) had a wider/squarer rear roof line than the '92+. I bought an 80's era SMB poptop and had to find a similar era van to make it fit. You might be able to modify a later model top to fit the wider gen 3, but I think you'll struggle going the other way around.

Thank you Josh... pretty much exactly as I thought... oh well!
