Newbie, first jeep and it's only been about 2 weeks. How DO you get the rear window unzipped completely off? I've tried a couple of times, but was in a hurry in the dark when I did. Looks like the passenger side unzips towards the driver side, bur doesn't look like the driver side comes off the zipper.

intelligence helps

Well, this morning I went at the back window again. After struggling with the rear window again for 15 minutes, I finally realized I was trying to remove the wrong side of the zipper! the zipper stays on the window, not the Jeep.

Sometimes I wonder how I am allowed to drive at all!

I've rolled the back window up plenty of time without any issues. You just have to be careful not to pinch it when folding the whole assembly down. The side windows get stored flat under the "floormat" in the bed with a towel between them. I use a bungee on the anchors that come up through the floormat to keep things pinned down.

Sub'ing!

Correct...google search is better and how I found this!

And the windows are kind of frustrating. JKWU is only a couple weeks old and we've already have issues with back window and one side window. Back window has to be because of those straps. I'll look to find a method to hold everything once taken out as noted above...... And agreed the back window is a bit of a b---- to take out.

Thanks! Great answers and help from the forum!

There is a snap on a piece of plastic on some webbing over one of the cross bars and it looks like it fits on a snap on the same bar. Does anyone know what it is for?

In the pic i am at the rear passenger side. The spring assist is in the bottom left corner of the pic and you can see the strap and the other side of the snap is just above it in the pic

I'm pleased to say I know the answer to this.

That strap (one on each side) is used when removing the soft top completely from the cage. The loop is pulled over a hook on the spring assist assembly to keep the spring restrained while the top is removed.
