I looked at the solid uppers with sliding windows, $700/pr, then I saw one on a Jeep here, the windows open almost enough to get the fast food bag handed through, granted, for me that could be a good thing, full doors are hard to find and damn expensive, because no one gets half doors and sells the full ones, they keep them for winter.

((btw, how many times a day are you looking at the tracking numbers? lol, my stuff from RC gets here wednesday))

Ok.... And what would make it crease? The windows underneath the doors?

It's a small trunk lol. Unless you have an LJ. It would be possible to roll them up but the trunk itself is not wide enough to hold them as is. You would need to...for lack of a better term... "stuff" them in the back. Plus the doors on top, or on the side pushing up against them.

Keep in mind I don't have half doors so I am just assuming this so I may be incorrect.

Oh ok... I was under the impression that the whole top would fit in the trunk easily, and I'm wrong? What if I were to lay it across the tub like where the framed soft top would lie down?

you can fold and roll the top fairly small, small enough to fit in an instatrunk, I have mine, easily, you have to fold it in half top to bottom, then fold in thirds over the support braces, then roll, the windows should be rolled up seperatly anyway, if they are staying in the top and the top is staying on as a safari top, the window storage is great, if the top is comming off, dont leave them in the storage bags, you have to remember the windows are not flat, roll them up seperately and stow with the top, the rear window will not fit in the trunk unless you take the tail-gate bar off, it isnt difficult to do, but the more you take it off and put it on, the more it will loosen up, so I roll the window around the bar and stow it behind the seats, if you take out the tail-gate bar it will roll up smaller than any other window.

Storage aside, the frameless top is faster and easier than the stock top to put on and take off once you get used to it. The windows in the frameless top are absolutely the largest windows in any soft top you can get, it redifines what a soft top should be.

So why would folding and rolling it up be bad with the windows inside it? Im not against taking them out I just want to be able to put the whole top and full soft doors in my jeep before I pull the trigger

Because with the windows in the storage pockets it wont roll as small as it will without them, by which I mean the size of the rolled up top and rolled up windows rolled seperately and then bundled together is quite a bit smaller than the top and windows all rolled together. This is because the windows can't be rolled up properly when flattened out inside the top.

Alright, and is there any way to fold up the rear window without the tailgate bar? And just to make sure, you can fit the whole top AND the windows in an instatrunk?

Yes, rolled separately it all fits easily, the tailgate bar of course doesn't, but the rest fits with lots of room to spare
