storing windows soft top

Hey guys where do you store your windows in your jeep? Ive got one of those fabric folding things, but somewhere someone said something about a bikini top that can store the windows? (I was thinking of storing in between my homemade bikini top and the soft top (but thatll only work when the top is up. Im losing alot of storage space inside the jeep . usually I would leave em in the garage but its different when Im going camping and need the room in the back

This may sound crazy but here's what I did. I got some 3 inch pvc pipe. One end has a cap the other end has a a screw type clean out. It is about 24 inches long. I roll all the windows up real tight with old pillow cases between them, slide them down in the pvc, screw in end cap and velcro it to the soft top when it is down on the tailgate, It has been that way all summer even at high speeds. It has not come loose yet.

I painted it all flat black and it is hardly noticeable.

If you have your top up and no windows in, just throw it in the back. They are pretty protected in the pvc

If you have a Cloverpatch roll or a Bestop Window Duffle, both will attach to the top of your folded down soft top. Additionally if you use a soft top boot, you will gain tons of storage area back with the top down.

cloverpatch roll, thats what Ive got now just takes up alot of room in the back and its so flismy it wouldnt fare well to be mounted to anything , I like the soft top boot, also really like the pvc idea!

Im not sure about a 24 inch pipe tho, the back window of mines got the tailgate bar its longer then that but no problem I could have it 40 inches and mount it to my hi lift. really great idea

oh sweet it does lol . I hadnt given it another look after I bought the jeep (came with it) . it fits up there real nice! but damn!!!!!!!!!! No matter where I mount the hi lift it always is in the way!!!!!!! Finally today after shortening it( by folding the clamp at a right angle and taking off the base piece) I managed to get it where it allows the top to be raised / lowered. gosh Ive srsly mounted it about 20 times all over the roll bars.....


One thing I worry about is someone snatching it up. theres really no way to secure it down. any ideas? Ill be happy if its secure enough so someone cant snatch it while walking by. yeah I know theres the 2 buckles but....guess Im just a bit paranoid whenever something new goes on the jeep I have to be paranoid for a couple weeks. for any long periods of time (night) I can just simply bring it in.

I lay my windows flat in the back of my JKU, with a large piece of Duvetyne (think flannel bed sheet material) between the two windows and then folded on top of the top window. then I clipped a half size cargo net down on top of them to the four loops in the floor. The cargo net and fabric protect them from just about everything, and I can even put some lighter/soft stuff or groceries on top without scratching them. The rear window I roll up and put into the elastic loops before dropping the top. it just gets all wrapped up in the top.
