Rear window Soft top

Greetings All, if I roll up the rear window, is there supposed to be a strap/band or something to hold it up?. If it is missing (which i believe it is) any good ideas on what to use. Thanks...

Mine has a stretchy band that goes around the rolled window and button it in place.

I see that you are in Forest Hill, CA...by Auburn?

Just unzip it, it comes out. Finally got mine out today for the first time since I've owned the Jeep.

i'm gonna zip down and drape in the back on the way home from work today.
not a big fan of having it loose in the back and not quite warm enough to remove for my 80 mile commute........

oooouch.... i hope you have a 6 speed at least... gas is already killing me and i only drive half that per day but to answer your question there are two stetchy button straps, one on each side, to fasten the rolled rear window. on mine at least

I notice a lot of folks roll it up into those straps -- I find it easier to unzip and tight roll it inside and down and tuck into the space above the add-a-trunk. I never figured out how to avoid sliding the window out of the bottom guide in order to roll up so I had to improvise...

they should have been in the same 'zip lock' as your grab handles. Found mine in glove box or in pouches behind seats, cant remember which.
