So with the soft top on, does anyones windows pop out while driving and fold back bc of the wind? I' tried adhering industrial velcro to the door sill but to no avail, my window keeps popping out. Are there any tricks to keeping the window edge under the door indulation? Does anyone else have this problem? Take it to the dealer? I read something about using a blow drier to install the windows so they could flex a lil.
As seen in the pics, it doesnt appear to be seated correctly...
Ok ill give it a try. First off take the window off. Zip it about one inch or so. OPen the door the window just like the bottom "clips in". if you clip it in right it will stay on with the door open. After that zip it up velcro then clip the bottom in.
Thx Vin, palm to face.
Works just fine now, i didnt think they would stretch that far but when you start out with it tucked under, then zip it works just fine.
Like JP said, there were many before you and will likely be many after you. If I remember, the next time I put my top back up, I'll make a short video. I always wonder if people get what I mean when I say "U" and "L"
I had to show hubby how to do this when he got home too. That part can be hard on some tops to go into it's sill and cause you to not realize you're doing it wrong. Trust me, you aren't the first to get confused about it.

I did the same thing the first time I put my soft top up, though the windows didn't pop out, course I didn't do any highway driving. But after seeing some threads on here I went out and noticed I was doing it wrong.
You're not installing them correctly. I see it on the highway at least four or five times a year.
Here's my write up from another thread:

(1) With top otherwise up and done, hang a window using the Velcro.
(2) Zip the zipper NO MORE than 6". Just get it started.
(3) Fold the part that you're currently seeing flap in the breeze in toward the plastic door surround behind it, tucking the hard plastic that's embedded in the window fabric into the channel in the door surround. It folds over in a "u" shape. This is the step you're presently missing.
(4) Zip the zipper the rest of the way.
(5) Stretch and leverage the plastic strip on the bottom of the window into the channel on the jeep's body. You may need to go back to step 3 and retuck a bit to make sure it's still in tight after doing this.
(6) Fix the Velcro and admire handiwork.
The window will be very tight. Nothing flaps in the breeze.
In essence, the window is secured on the top and rear by the zipper, and on the bottom and front by attached/embedded plastic that's folded into a channel on the jeep/door surround. You're missing the step to secure the front.
