2009 / 2010 Bestop Bikini Top

Can someone explain to me why Bestop Tech. support says a Bikini (safari) top for a 2010 jk 4-door will not fit a 2009 jk 4-door ? Bestop must have made some change to the design of the top for the 2010 and tech. support dude agrees that there is no difference in the body of the jeep from the 2009 to the 2010 model but insist the 2010 top will not work on a 2009.

That makes sense! Only an issue when soft top door surrounds are in place.
