Storing Jeep Soft Top zip out windows

I have a 2011 Wrangler 2-door. I've looked at several of the window "roll" storage products; my question is how do you roll up the side windows. My windows have two "hard" strips, 1 on the front door side and 1 on the bottom. How do you roll these up without damaging them? Or does anyone know of a storage product that keeps them flat (say behind the seats)?

Rolling them won't hurt them. Those rails will outlast the plastic "windows" by a long shot... Put something soft between the windows, and roll them over half a pool noodle to keep them shaped well. They'll be fine.

I just wad mine up and shove them wherever, as I always figured I could buy new ones if they got buggered up. But 9 years and 115k miles later, they still work fine and aren't terribly scratched up, either. The velcro is getting a bit tired after all those years, though.

I throw mine in the back. when I do "roll" them, I fold them in half so the hard strips are in line against eachother, kinda like a triangle, then fold again, and tuck behind seats. they dont show creases or anything, they go right back to original shape fine.

I bought a long piece of black fleece for about $20 at a fabric shop and cut it into four equal sized pieces. I roll up my windows and wrap the roll with some velcro straps I bought at Lowes. I've been storing them this way since last year and it works well. Only drawback to this is that you have to go into a fabric shop. Wasn't pretty!
