Rear window replacement

Hey, everyone!

I'm not too familiar with jk replacement parts or even replacement windows overall so figured I'd post to cover all my bases.

I've got a friend with a 2008 2 door and be just put a hole in his rear window. I found a stock top with tinted windows on Craigslist for 100 bucks and figured that would be his best option as long as the windows were in good shape.

That being said, is there a better option? Is there a place to just buy a factory besttop rear tinted window for cheaper than 100?

Thanks in advance!!

It appears that you can only buy the set of 3 windows. Search CL for people selling them. Is that $100 for the whole top with windows? If so it sounds very suspect. Also bear in mind that the window sizes change in 2011 and are not backward compatible.

That's what I get for trying to be on the forums, when I should be sleeping. Damn sleep cycle.

If you have a pre-2011:

Bestop Tinted Window Kit For Sailcloth Replace-A-Top, Black Diamond - 58129-35

Anyway, yeah, like Daggo said, they're mostly only available as a whole kit. On the off chance that you happen to find a single window from an actual retailer (Quadratec does sell some singles), you're paying almost 75% of what you'd pay for the kit, so you might as well get three new windows.

Didnt know they werent backward...but yeah, its for the whole top. The windows are in good shape but the top itself has a fray but wouldnt be using the top so dont really care. The post is from a 2007 and his is a 2008.
