Unhappy Hard Top with opening rear windows

I'm a firefighter with an Arson Dog. I'm looking for a Hard top to replace the soft top on my 1994 YJ that has back windows that will open for the dog to put her head out.

I see sliding windows in everything from motorhomes to boats but can't find a Jeep hard top with windows that will slide open for the pup to get some fresh air.

Can anyone help me on this???

i'd try a truck canopy installer or manufacturer. i would think they could fabricate something. i was thinking the same thing for my dodge nitro.

some guy on jeepforum.com made a safari hardtop for his lj, and a company is going to start producing them. it has the sliding windows on the side. its a ways away from production though, and even further away from a yj version. probably cost you 2-3k when it comes out.

Only thing I can see is popping out the side glass and fabbing some out of pexi or other material.

Check out FirefighterRobT's 1989 YJ with a 350. It looks like what your looking for and maybe he can give you some info about it. I saw the picture under YJ pictures. Good Luck

I have a hardtop and 2 dogs, so I have been looking for sliding windows too...with no luck. The other day I was thinking on it again and went out to look at my fixed windows...which have shot seals needing to be replaced. Still, the window sits firmly in that factory window seal...so I got to thinking...why not take out the window glass and use it as a template/mold for a Fiberglas insert, trim the centre to the correct dimensions for an RV or trailer sliding side window...and place the whole unit into a new Jeep window seal. I need to repair or replace my top anyways, so I think that I will give it a try this summer when I pull the top.

I always leave the tailgate glass up and close the tailgate. The air flow is awesome with the front windows down and the tailgate window open. And that's saying a lot considering I live in FL haha

I think you are on to something that may turn out to be a money maker
A guy I know made his side windows out of Plexiglass and hinged them at the top so they pop out at the bottom, they look a little rube but could be improved on
