Back window.....lost zipper

Summers coming to an end, so while putting the windows back on and the soft top I noticed that the there is no more zipper to put the back window on......

So now there are just the 2 side windows zippered on and no back window.
Any ideas to fix this or where to get it fixed?

Thanks alot

Boat upholstery shop. I just had the entire zipper replaced in my back window. $125 for the zipper and labor. It is a special zipper that works around corners. That is what I was told and it had to be ordered. Works great now.

Boat upholstery / top shop is the way to go. But I am really intrigued by your problem. Are both sides of the zipper gone? Both the side attached to the soft top and the side side attached to the back window?

When you say no more zipper, you mean the slider is gone? If so that is a simple fix. You need a YKK #10 slider and a stop which you can buy youself. jeepit.com or ebay also have them.

I took mine to an upholstery shop and got charged $130 to fix the rear window zipper. While they did a good job and I had no issues, it was way too much. Then I did some research and found this site...
Jeep Zipper Sliders
Could have did it myself for $15.

EDIT: I noticed your in Boston, the Upholstery shop is in Stoneham.

Yes you have to pry off the existing zipper stop (attache to the to) The sliders will come off the end, you put new sliders on to the track and press on a new stop. The stop is just a U shapped piece.
