I was about to come up with something like this myself and then I found your writeup! I like the way you think!

Thanks,

Wes

I made this today. Black felt & grommets. Works like a charm! Thanks for the idea.

Now, I need something to put the roll in. Right now I have it in one of these: MOPAR 5FZ85BX7AB - MOPAR® Soft Top Boot in Black Denim for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec but I want to use it for the top.

Someone has to have a good idea for a water resistant storage bag that will work & hook to the roll bars. C'mon, people!

I have been wanting to do this and contemplating on how to do it. The wall mart closest to me currently is liquidating their felt and its like 1.50/yrd. As for something waterproof, You could get a large PVC pipe, like 3-5" and cap off one end, mount it to your rollbar somewhere and have a screw on lid on the bottom or on one end. just a thought...

For the bag, why not grab some nylon material of your choice and paracord. Shouldn't take too much to sew it into a tube with paracord sewn into the ends. Paracord will draw the ends closed and can be used to secure the roll around the roll cage.

Thats exactly what I had planned. I just bought a spool of quality 550 paracord and this is one of those projects I had planned for it.

I found this thread while searching for a way to store my windows.

I have a 4 door JK and measured out felt that was 4 inches wider than my rear window, so my roll is 50 inches wide.

I found a bag online that is made for tent poles. It is 60 inches long by 12 inches wide, which gives it a circumference of 24 inches when open. This means it has a diameter of just over 7 1/2 inches. This is plenty big for my roll.

The bag was $11 plus $7 shipping. I thought the shipping was kind of steep for a light item like a nylon bag, but it's pretty sturdy and the closest I could find to the size I need.

Here's a link to the bag:
Family Tent Pole Bags, 21000 | Tent Accessories | Tents | GEAR | items from Campmor.

Here's a picture of it:

I have a dumb question...How do you get the side windows rolled up since side and bottom have hard edges that don't roll up easily?

Thanks!!!

When I roll mine up, the rear window gets put into the felt with the bottom edge where the felt is sewn together so it rolls up from bottom to top. The side windows go in with the front plastic edge against where the felt is sewn so that they roll up from front to rear. The bottom plastic edge of the side windows rolls right up, and when your done, they unroll nice and straight again.

Cool idea, might have to borrow this one.

Probably a stupid question, but how would the windows fair if stored for extended periods of time like the winter months?

Made one yesterday, works great. I strapped mine across the roll bar directly behind the crossbar above the front seats. I usually keep the overhead top up and remove the doors sides and rear.

Such creative, crafty people in this forum! Good Job! Thanks.
Cosmosbluejk-not a stupid question. I was wondering the same since I have to store mine for about 5-6 months.

I've had mine rolled since sometime in May. Had to take them out briefly once or twice. No harm no fowl. Also, and this works very well (thanks due to JDsDream), roll the windows around a 6" swim noodle cut to the width of the roll. Keeps the roll from collapsing or flattening out.

Just to let you guys know that larger plastic pipe comes 3",4",6" and so on. Sorry no 5". Just to let you know. I would probly go with a 4" 2729 drain pipe or 6". You could also get those sizes in ABS which is black and a thicker wall. 2729 drain pipe is white and thin wall.

I know this is an old thread, but thought it was worth a bump to say THANKS!
Just spent $19 on felt and another $10 on a nice piece of outdoor cloth for the storage sock.

Sure beats the $80 they want.
