Soft Top windows and back- Can they be folded/rolled up and stored in car?

Hi all,

Recently purchases a Wrangler with a soft top and am wondering if the windows and back can be rolled up/folded and stored in the back compartment, or if it is better to store them outside the vehicle. I want to store them in the back if possible but equally don't want them damaged. Any ideas?

Thanks.

I used to fold my side panels in half and stick them behind teh back seat with the upper door halves... I do not suggest rolling up the rear window unless it has been cleaned prior to rollin it up.. even teh slightest dirt can cause hairline scratches that appear as cloudy plastic.

use a blanket or one of the window roll bags from bestop to store them. Storing dirty/dusty windows = scratched windows.

I've got a bag from Clover Patch that has felt liners to seperate the windows and then the whole soft top and windows roll up into the sleeve.

Love it! Use it all summer, it's how I'll store the windows all winter, just flat, while the hard top is on!

Thanks Folks for the help. The Window Roll looks like a good option if I can get one in Australia...
