Would absolutely love to drive around with the windshield down but will have to wait 'til the cooler months.... Here in Florida you'd just be asking for a mouthful of love bugs.

I was saying you remove the two torx bolts on each end of the bar. This method removes the entire bar, and doesn't leave anything on the roll bar.

Sorry Sinful, but JDT is right - fold back the rollbar padding and each bar has 2 bolts attached to the 'B-pillar roll bar'.
I haven't seen the user manual for my Jeep in a while, but remember it advises these are the torx to undo when removing the bar - Jeep manual also advises not removing the security torx as they are set at the factory.

Well I could certainly see how that would make sense. My apologies, I thought he was referring to the two bolts at the windshield.
The two security are oblong holes that would press the windshield tighter/looser to the seals so I can see why Jeep would want to set that at factory and no one mess with it. Lucky it left a perfect ring in the paint on where to put them back and 2 thunderstorms later, no leaks so I must have lucked out. I'll check out those two bolts under the padding next time the top is off, though I don't imagine I'll actually drop the windshield again until the next 4th of July.

Can't be too much worse than when I got caught on the Intimidator 305 in the rain at kings dominion. That was aweful... 95 mph in heavy rain... no thank you. But I think folding the windshield down is pretty sweet, but I doubt I'll ever do it just from laziness
