Back window...

I didnt pick up the jeep yet but quick question...

Do you have to take out the back window to put the soft top down??

Thanks!

Yes or at least roll it down but you still need to separate the zipper from the roof.

No, just un-zip it on the sides then roll it, snap it in place and it fits nicely along the back between the roll bar ends and the tail gate as you fold the rest of the top down on it.

I roll mine up and drop the top. No need to completely take the back window off.

I don't roll it or do anything to it... Idk if that's bad or not but getting that thing back on is a pain in the @$$ when you take it all the way off.

I zip up the sides and then roll and snap the little straps around it. Taking it off an putting back on is a pain. And leaving it on and folding the top will probably put creases is the window.

When it's warm you can just leave the windows at home. You'd be surprised how little water gets in when it rains. Just put the roof back up if it looks like rain.

my zipper has be sewen shut on one side, so un zipping it isn't an option for me. i just leave it one when i fold the top back. so far so good, no real scratches or creases in the rear window. it probably doesn't fold back as nicely as other people's do, but it works for me.

I unzip mine except for a couple inches on the left hand side, and then drop the top. I don't remove nor completely unzip it.

I unzip it and move the zippers to the left (except for a couple inches) and then fold the window behind the rear seat, then lower the rest of the top down on top of it.

x2

My zipper is busted on the top part so the window cant come off but I can roll it up. I go around the window twice with the hanging straps because it rolls the window up tighter.

On the left side is where you start, with both zippers on that side on top of each other, you slide the cross bar on, then slide the long metal piece through both of them, making sure its flush, then, holding the bottom zipper down, pull the top zipper through. then just zip it up and tuck in the flap tabs...


I didnt even think about zipping up each side and rolling it, i just took it off and rolled it up and hung it on those loops.
