sunrider soft top "sun roof"

OK so i have a couple of questions about my sunrider soft top... I LOVE the sun roof option that i have by just flipping the first part of the top down, but i have a few VERY aggrivating problems... 1) when im going at a good pace (50-70 mph), I get a sag in the folded area of the top above my head and it starts to hit my head... conveniant right? Is there a fix for this?
Also, when im going along at the same speeds as before, and i have the window down, or the sun roof going, It seems like there is a huge vaccum in my jeep and my soft top is being sucked in. Looks kind of weird... anyone else have this trouble?

Thanks guys!

I made a strap with a hook on the end that goes around the rollcage inside and hooks to the bar on the top. Keeps the cloth in place.

You shouldn't have to make a strap for the top at all. I think I know where your problem is. I made this same mistake before I saw a video on how to to lower the top, as well as take advantage of the sunrider option.
After you unclip the windshield, remove the "restraints" from the door frame, DON'T just flip the top back and be done with it. this will leave an excess amount of material sagging above your center console, and sagging will be slightly amplified at highway speeds. Instead, after you're done

That's right. Here is a link to the video from Jeep explaining how to open the top.
My Jeep: 2008 Jeep Wrangler Soft Top Guide
This is how I learned when I bought my used 06.

As far as the "suction" goes...if you open/take out your rear window this will go away. Mine does the same even when opening the door windows with the top on.

I hope this helps.

(doing this through my phone, hence the 2 part message.....sorry)

...removing all necessary clips and such, lift slightly on the front of the top. The black plastic door frame clips need to get folded back towards the vehicle....at this point, you should have a diamond silhouette. Make sure both side are in this position once the top is layed back. Ensure that the excess material is then folded invertedly(sp) to match the position of the clips. That's it...you now have a sunroof that extends just behind your head.


As far as your vacuum problem....dunno
