Storage idea for Bestop Window Roll when not in use

So the gf got me a Bestop window roll for my birthday yesterday, and I was playin around with the limited storage areas in ther Jeep and came across the perfect place to store the roll when its not being used! So I thought I would share. Its slid alongside the rear seat just under the window and the straps line up perfect with the oval holes in the tub so it can be strapped in place and won't go anywhere! Just an idea for anyone out there with one of these since our storage real estate is pretty limited!

Looks like a good idea. I've been just leaving mine rolled flat behind the rear seat. Another idea, since when the windows are rolled in it and it cuts the rear storage in half, is to put it on top of your folded down soft top. Roll the windows loosely so that the velcro doesn't line up. This leaves a velcro strip that will firmly attach to the back of your rear seat on top of the sof top.

Another good idea daggo. Sounds similar to what the cloverpatch window roll does, only it attaches to the sport bar at the ends because its wider. I kinda like it under the top when its folded down because its pretty well hidden, that way someone can't as easily walk by and snatch your windows! (Not sure if that would even be a problem, but people steal dumber things...haha)

I dont understand....do you have any pictures, it would be nice to hide it in the soft top cause if a "jeeper" knows whats rolled in it, they might snatch it right up. I do worry about this! Thanks!

You can't "hide it in the soft top." Normally I keep in inside the tail gate. You can't see it with the top down, but it takes up a lot of space. My idea came from the fact that my wife and I went to Sam's Club with my Jeep instead of her Liberty and as usual bought too much stuff.

I don't roll my windows up real tight so the strip with the "hooks" of the hook and loop velcro, is exposed. I set the roll on top on my folded soft top with the "hook velcro strip" against the rear seat. It attaches itself just as securely as a velcro strip.

I don't normally drive around with it up there because as mentioned, it is obvious to other Jeep owners as to what it is and I don't wish to tempt fate.

A "real" Jeeper would never steal from another Jeeper...... (except ideas... )

True, but there are some who are not "real." I learned the hard way when I had my CJ. I learned a lot about AMC CJ's in the process.

I was driving home from the gym one evening and noticed my brakes were very soft. When I got home I lifted the hood to check the brake fluid and to my surprise the top was missing from the master cylinder reservoir and almost all off the fluid was gone. Just a little farther drive and I would have had zero brakes.

I went to the local auto parts store and couldn't get a replacement top. I was going to have to get an entire reservoir. Then it turns out none were in stock and no one could get me one sooner than 2 weeks. I tried everywhere including used parts from junkyards. I soon realized why someone decided to steal mine.

I managed to get a ride to work and was telling the story to a couple of my co-workers. One of them mentioned that her husband was a mechanic and that I should give him a call. I "knew" it was hopeless because I called every parts store there was, but I called him anyway. He told me to order the part for a GMC truck and gave me the year and engine model.

I decided to trust him and when I went to the original auto parts store they had the part he referenced in stock. I took it home and it was a perfect fit! Over time I learned the entire Jeep was a collection from other manufacturers including, ironically since it was a 1980, a Chrysler automatic transmission.

Foxy, Like daggo said, its not getting hidden IN the soft top. its BELOW the soft top, in the cargo area. Its hanging though rather than just sitting in there. I will get pics next time I have the top down.

Foxy, here is the pics I promised. The first one is showing where the window roll is under the top in the cargo area with the gate open.





And I took this one to show you that the roll is completely hidden beneath the soft top. Hope this helps!
