04 X Star Tower swap

04 X star and I am about an inch shy of clearing my shop door or any other 10' door for that matter. As any of you know that own one of these, they are a bear to fold down.

Question is, will the newer style towers that are much easier to fold fit my boat? I would also love to upgrade to swivel board racks and the new tower would allow for this. Anyone ever made this upgrade?

Thanks for your help in advance.

One thought that may be easier and cheaper. Could you cut off the deal the rope hooks to and weld on a lower profile one. Have it behind the tower slightly instead of on top of it?

This sounds like the best option ^^^ if mine only lacked an inch this is what I would do

or you can weld it upside down
or spend a few grand and swap out the 04 tower with a 07-11 with little mods
