Soft top Windows

I have an 01 TJ and currently have a hard top. I am wanting to get a soft top for summer. I have two young ones that will be riding in the back and wonít want the open window feel all the time. With that in mind my number one priority is how easy it is to install and remove the windows on the soft top. Iíve been reading through a lot of the other soft top threads and most donít seem to focus on my issue. Currently looking at the Bestop Supertop or Bestop Trektop NX. Should I be looking at others based on my needs?


Thanks
Session

They are pretty easy to install and remove. The more time I do it the easier it get, but I'm always rusty at it after a long winter. I have a soft top but I bought a spider shade with the full enclosure. I have a 2.5 yr old and a 4 month old. I bought the rear side windows so all their toys stay in the jeep. It blocks a lot of wind off them in my opinion. I do not Carry my window with me. If I get caught in the rain I will put the soft top up over the spider shade. That the best part about the spider shade. Once installed you never have to remove it, soft or hard top

Keep zippers lubricated and clean!
Always easier when everything in HOT.
When starting zippers make sure properly aligned...once they've been crossed it's a BEAR!!
Don't even look at the soft top windows at 45* or below...they'll crack just because they can!
Don't roll them up or lay on top of each other without a barrier they'll scratch!

I have a soft top and at first I had trouble with it. But as I did it more and more it became very easy! Like others have said make sure everything lines up and keep zippers lubricated.

Got my Supertop NX last Spring and love it.

And for storing my windows I've found the Clover Patch window roll to work great.

x2, supertop NX is awesome, but as they said up top, don't instal unless its sunny and at least 70+. The windows might be tricky at first but they will stretch a little and then will zip on and off with no issue.
