Replaced my front windows today

What a pain and it looks terrible only got driver side done after all the cussing and slinging of items I had enough. Maybe passenger side another day and it looks terrible compared to original

How did you replace them? What windows do you have? Soft uppers? I'm looking into getting the upper window skins but waiting till it gets warmer

Yea have soft uppers mine is a 97 and it has original top and windows so they were pretty much dry rot after taking apart had some rust in window frame as well so prob be buying a new set. I'd def recomend waiting on warm weather or very least have a heat gun.

I just bought a set of soft upper replacements on e-bay. New ones have velcro strips to wrap around the metal frame. Old ones (OEM) look like they were stitched onto frame. Did you have to cut yours off the frame or am I missing an easy way to get the oem windows off the frame? Mine aren't totally shot so would prefer not to cut them up if I don't have to. Thanks for the help.

I had to cut originals off of frame . when u install the new ones make sure u unzip the window it helps a lot and use a shoe horn to slip on the last corner .
