No ideas? Maybe everyone just throws in the back then.

There are a couple of different storage systems out there that allow you to roll your windows up and store them in a duffel that either attaches to the roll bar or fits in the rear storage area under your soft top. The Clover Patch Roll is pretty popular: 10-ST-9100 - Clover Patch Window Roll™ for 87-06 Jeep® Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec. Bestop makes one as well: Bestop 42810-09 - Bestop HOSS™ Window Storage Duffle in Charcoal For Bestop and Factory Zip Out Vinyl Windows - Quadratec. If you don't want to spend that much, you could do what I did (full disclosure...got my ideas off this forum) and buy some felt, cut it into 4 sheets large enough to fit between each window (I have full doors so didn't have to account for half-door windows). Once you layer the felt in between your windows, roll it all up and secure it with a couple of velcro straps. Some folks have actually sewn the sheets together to make little pockets for the window to fit into. If you get a pool noodle and cut it down, then roll your felt-wrapped windows around the noodle, that will keep the roll tight and minimize creases in the windows. If you want some extra protection from moisture and dust, you can then take the bag from a camp chair and slip the roll inside the bag. I think I spent maybe $15 total for the felt, velcro strips and pool noodle.

i use something like the clover patch roll. if i'm just around town i just put them in the felt liner and lay em flat in the garage. check ebay/amazon and you'll probably find it at a better price.

I building a rack for them Friday or Saturday. I have done it in the past but made a few changes in my plans to save $. I have $40 in it and I hold the half doors, upper sliders, and the complete top. It's a 6 ft wide wood frame with PVC covered with foam pipe insulation to keep every window separate. I screw it in the wall of my garage I will post pics when I he it done in a separate thread.

Get four soft towels. Then create a window taco/burrito... Then get a water resistant fold out chair bag. Works like a charm.
