Rear Window Replacement (Soft Top)

I need a new rear window for a soft top on a 2005 Wrangler X. I've seen that Bestop sells a tinted window kit. Does anyone know if this will fit a factory top? I know I should probably replace the whole top at once but $$ is an issue at the moment.

Depending on damage some boat shops can fix.

But to answer the kit from Bestop should fit. And I love the tinted windows.

I think it is beyond repair...looks like someone slashed it. But then the zipper has been crap since I got the Jeep in July.

Yea, if you can get the tinted windows, much nicer,cooler and can't see into your back seat area. I just got a new top with the tinted windows.

Thanks for the input. I ordered the Bestop. I'll see how it fits in a few days.

I ordered the Bestop 58128-35 Black Diamond replacement tinted window kit (2 side quarters and rear windows) from Amazon on 12/18. It was delivered yesterday. The back window fits perfectly! I didn't realize what big a difference having a non-scratched window makes. Thanks again for the advice.
