Do you zip-tie your rear seatbelts to the rollbar?
Okay...so I finally got the chance to drive topless for the first time in my Jeep and after about 15 minutes, I knew I had to find a solution for the problem that I was having. My rear seatbelts were flapping HORRIBLY in the wind and the noise was driving me up the wall.
So after I got back to work, I immediately pulled out some zip-ties and zip-tied the seatbelts to the rollbar. Later that night I was at my buddy's shop and another friend was there checking out my Jeep and said, "So, you saw online that everybody zip-ties their seatbelts to their rollbars cuz of their flapping?"
I didn't read it online...not once. It was just the first thing I could think of. So I'm just curious now...how many of you have done the same thing? lol
Later that night, I ended up removing the seat belts entirely... I don't haul passengers and soon enough I will be removing the rear seat altogether. Before anyone comments on safety issues, rest assured...if I put the seat back in, I will reinstall the seatbelts (zip-ties and all).

I use the seat belts to hold my kids booster seats down when I am topless ... But if I didn't have the booster seats I would probably use Velcro straps so they would be easier to undo if they were needed.
I said no, my rear seat and seatbelts have been out of the Jeep since last summer. No one rides back there it's for camping/wheeling gear and the dog. By taking out the seatbelts no one asks to sit back there

I use 2 bungee balls on each side. I learned that 1 isn't enough. I also have a couple velcro straps as shown above.
When I use my safari top, I bungee the loose ends of each strap too. I learned they can make some noise as well.
At some point during jeep ownership, you will BUST A NUT!!!
I use double sided velcro that I got at AZ.... If it's not cinched up super tight it stops the flapping and doesn't interfere with the operation of the seatbelts at all... a couple of my kids ride back there often, too, so they have to be functional....
Btw, I didn't vote, since velcro wasn't an option....
bungie cord here. I found it in the garage and told it "I have a perfect use for you". it gave me a small grin showing it was happy to be used, after such a long sentence in its cold, dark, dusty home.
I need another Jeep...I'm lurking here, waiting for a great deal.
