Yup....but its a pain the arse to get back on so I just unzip each side to the seams on the top and roll it up and secure it with the straps that came with your jeep.

guys I need help... I am so F'in pissed! So I got my new 14 2dr and today is a great day, so I want to take the top down! Side windows... No problem! Rear window... Problem! I unzipped the window all the way to the driver side, there is no possible way i can get these zippers to go any further, yet it is not enough to release the window... i pulled and pulled, rezipped and unzipped, cursed very loudly at it... and nothing! I pulled so hard, i felt like i was going to do some damage to the window... Its like that last zipper teeth a aren't coming undone.

Please Help

Having boats for the last 30 years I am used to scratched up plastic windows, same thing, use a terrycloth towel on them or roll them up without something between them and they get wrecked in a year. The nice thing about the dark tinted ones on this '13 premium top is they dont show the scratches as much as clear. I'm a back window roller-upper, even dropping the whole top, tailgate bar and all. When it gets too bad I'll just replace it. Taking it off isnt a huge a PITA, but then you have to store it somewhere..

I usually just take it all the way to drivers side, then using my thumb, grab both zippers handles firmly and pull them down while holding the canopy side up.

Thank you very much erik! Thanks to all actually. I thought my back window was sewn in improperly but the teeth of the zipper were just lined up incorrectly when originally put on. The recommendation of unhooking the window bar and pulling at the same time (with some good force) worked. Now that it is off, and put back on by lining it up correctly, it works fine.
I know this is an older post but Thanks again!

I have always used a caribiner on the zipper pull. Works for me.
