Storing soft top windows

Anyone know who or where i can get something to store my soft top windows when i take the top down in the spring. I want to be able to store it in the jeep in case it rains. I know, just put them in the back seat but sometimes i am usually hauling around 4 people.

Geoff any ideas ?

We sell something called a Window Storage Duffle -- it basically rolls the windows up and keeps them safe. Part #42810. I'd guess there are other solutions out there, but nothing off the top of my head.

^^^ This is about the same thing that I have, and it works GREAT! There's a terrycloth sheet between each window, so that they don't get scratched by each other.

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

Both sides and back fit? Does it then strap to the lowered soft top? Retail pricing?

Clover Patch Window Roll as seen here is my favorite ... Works like a champ...
Very sturdy material and after roll up..... IT FITS IN THE BAG and you can store the bag/roll on top of the folded down soft top..

i've got the cloverpatch as well, great product. found it on ebay and it came with 3 bottles of cleaner/scuff remover and a buncha cloth that won't scratch your windows. ties down right over the folded down softtop as antigoon said.

^^^ That's it! Cloverpatch! I couldn't remember the name. Each window has it's own cubby hole, with the back window being the last to be covered, and has a small flap for the back window. Roll it up, tie it off with the two velcro straps, slide it in the nylon bag, and clip it to your Roll Bars on the back over your Soft Top. Here's mine stored on the Soft Top, as mentioned by Antigoon and Messianic:



It comes up even with the Spare Tire, and just below the 3rd Brake Light, so it doesn't block any rear view area at all.

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

Excellent Questions! I have no freaking idea. I'll find out tomorrow. (Hey., it's not exactly one of our main products.) Looks like it's designed to fit inside the cargo area. Price at Quadratec is 73 bucks.




Looks like it's Clover Patch (2 words) if you're searching for that one. Prices are 72-79 bucks. And it looks like a perfectly decent product!

I have the Clover Patch Window Roll and like it alot. You could actually sew yourself one for much cheaper than they charge but if you're not into sewing then in my opinion the clover patch is the way to go

I have the Bestop window duffle. All three windows fit perfectly, each separated by a felt layer. It fits perfectly in the rear crago area out of sight. In my opinion it is a must have for soft top owners.

+1 for the bestop duffle... My windows still look new, even after 4 years thanks to this... After storing through the winter, they will be a little wrinkled; however, they will disappear after you get them zipped back in place and the Jeep sits in the sun for a while.

Daggo & Jerry!

Curious, but how does the back window fit? Does it lay lengthwise, and you just roll it up with the two side windows? I ask, because, the Clover Patch has you lay the back window on the roll widthwise, making for a long roll, compared to the Bestop Window Storage Duffle. I looked at the PDF on Quadratec's site, but it doesn't really explain anything more than what we see on the web.

Thanks for any info you can provide!

Cheers!

You slip the bar out and lay the rear with the side windows so that it rolls sideways.

I picked up the Mopar storage bag. It holds the windows and upper soft doors with a layer of soft cloth between each. It straps onto the back seat and the top goes over it so you can't see the bag that easily and have it stolen.

^This... And there will be a piece of cloth to place in between each window keeping them from scratching each other when rolled up. This will keep the windows looking clearer longer.

I always wash my windows prior to rolling them up.. even with the felt layer between them they will scratch because of the embedded dirt particles..

I use the Mopar bag and have been satisfied with it. It rolls up and fits at the base of the rear seat and secures there with two clips.
