    Im pretty sure it would Dontoe, I think there is one bracket for the arm rest you would have to take off but other then that I think it would work

    Could you just build it up a little to make it flat?

    It will work! Might have to do some custom touches.

    Oh, and the factory door panel may go to the window.....That doesnt mean this one does, its only curved metal up there with no holes. Just got to cover 3/4 of the flat part of the door.
