My top came with some elastic straps that snap onto the last bar of the softop. I don't use mine because they tend to scratch the back window.

Keep in mind that the friction from the strap and driving will cause wear marks on the window where the strap touches it....

And if the temperature changes and it cools off when you go to unroll it, CRACK! I learned the hard way.

Better to remove it and roll it up with a clean towel. Save it from scratching itself.

If you drive with the rear out or up, you need to remove the sides as well unless you are looking to asphyxiate yourself...... Be safe out there Bob..

I take one of my zippers clean across to the opposite side bottom, and sit the windown DOWN inside the jeeps tub. it does the same thing just cant use the tailgate as easily. but if you not worried about this, thats the easiest option.

Nope, that's why they make CO detectors.

Here you go Bob. CO poisoning is a major concern during winter ops of piston aircraft, so I've had it on my mind before.

Yep, it gets sucked right in with the back window only out...... Any vehicle, not just Wranglers.... So all the idiots you see driving their 4 Runners or Tahoes with the rear window opened are only operating on about 3 cylinders....
