Storing windows for soft top?

Whats the best way to store the soft top side windows. I have seen where someone said there is a mopar soft top window bag and I cant find it on the mopar site. Can anyone give me some good ideas on how to store them when I'm riding around with them in the trunk. If some could post a link to the window bag I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks every one

The Clover Patch Window Roll is another popular one around here. It attaches to the sport bar above the soft top when its down.

A lot of people also buy a pool noodle and wrap the windows around that, with a towel in between each window. the towel protects the plastic from scratches and the noodle helps the window not to crease.

The phrase "pool noodle" always makes me blush. Don't know why.

The window roll kits that we, Clover Patch, and Mopar sell are very nice and useful. But there's nothing all that brilliant or engineered about them. They're just a convenience.

The idea is to put a layer of something between each window. Then to roll your windows up fairly loosely. And then to put something around the windows. So a blanket and a sheet, a big box and some towels. A pool noodle and a towel.

Not trying to persuade you against buying our stuff (I'm in marketing!). Just want to make sure you keep your windows nice.

My windows were already scratched when I got the Jeep. I just roll the back window up and leave it attached when lowering the top.. then I just make an upside down taco out of the side windows and drape them over a bungee chord stretched across the cargo area.

The Clover Patch Window Roll is what I use. I have found that it can be stored in the "trunk" area below the folded soft top if you don't want it sticking up on top, or if you stop and don't want to leave them out to be nabbed. Hope this helps.

Nothing against the manufactured window rolls, but we went to the local fabric store & bought some inexpensive polar fleece to go between the windows. It's very soft and non-scratching. We use that to roll up the windows and then put them into a nylon utility bag. Very cheap way to go - leaves more money for other toys.

Hey - I'm in favor of people building things for themselves, and always say so, so please don't think I'm being negative - this is a real question: does the fleece get all full of static, and would that attract dust and whatnot? Would it be better to use flannel?

I was thinking that same thing myself Geoff. The fleece is made from nylon. It does store heat (hence fleece outerwear) and create static. Cotton flannel would be a better choice and a cheaper one at that.

I haven't noticed a whole lot of static. Might have a lot to do with the humidity in the South during the part of the year when we are pulling the windows out. Cotton flannel might be another good choice. My only thought would be that it might tend to bunch up more, lacking the bulk of the fleece. Your mileage may vary.
