Trektop NX - can you leave the rear window in?

I just got the Trektop NX for my 03 Wrangler, but haven't installed it yet.

I think the wife was mostly pulling my chain, but I'm not positive of the answers either.

Can you run the softop with the side windows off, but leave the back window in? Would the wind be too much for it?

And I've read several threads about leaving the sunrider open. Do you just flop it back, or does it (should it) get secured some how?

Is it an omen that it's rained every day since the top arrived?

Out of curiousity, why would you want to leave ONLY the back window in?

My wife was asking me all kinds of questions of what I could and couldn't do with the soft top (she isn't crazy about it in general principle).

It started with: could I take the rear window on my side off, but leave her side on.

And before you ask, I have no idea why I'd do that either.

I always joke with my wife on trips saying "If the weather gets crappy we can put your door on and leave mine off."

As far as leaving the rear window in but take the side windows off...I am not sure as I do not have the Trektop. I have the viking top which is similar...I know that physically I could leave the rear window in, but I dont know if it would hold up to the stress that that may cause. It may just pop off or something and start flapping around in the wind.

If it's like any other soft top eventually that back window will stretch and not be as tight of a fit. I don't know if that will cause any additional problems being that it's a bow less top but I would take it into consideration.

The Trektop NX back window slides into a J-channel at the top, and zips into the size windows when they are installed. It might be possible to run with the side windows off and the back window on, but I wouldn't recommend it.

No, that'd be just weird. Every time I hear you guys say "my wife.." I'm reminded why I plan to stay unmarried.

The top just flips back. It stays.

My wife tells me to do that every time we drive the Jeep doorless. It's bad enough I have to leave the back 2 on for the kids.

As for the Trektop, the other guys are right about the back window question. As for the sunrider feature, it folds back, doesn't secure to the top when folded back and the header clips rattle like crazy at speeds over 40mph.
