Trektop NX Window Roll

I really like the versatility of the Trektop NX, but wish I had a place to put my windows when I decide to remove them.

I've seen window bags like this: All Things Jeep - For Jeep Wrangler Window Storage, the Jeep Window Roll from Cloverpatch, for 1987-2006 Wranglers

Do I need a special window bag for the larger windows of the Trektop NX or will any bag work? Does anyone have a better idea for storing the Trektop windows in the jeep?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I too am interested in this topic. However, you and I are among the first to receive this top and I'm not sure we are going to find many reviews on accessories at this time.

My trektop nx is on backorder, but I've been looking for how to store the windows as well, saw the cloverpatch, looked like it would do the job. If y'all get something pls post up how it worked for you.

For what it is worth---when I first purchased my '04-wasn't aware of all the window bag/roll options. (my '94 had a hard top and bikini only.) I went to Walmart purchased several yards of felt like blanket material-and a "heavier" material that would be similar to a seat cover. Cost at Walmart $30.
I cut the material so that it was slightly larger than the rear window as that is the largest one. I left the inside felt pieces so that they were longer/one piece folded over. Imagine a large "book" with felt pages and the seat cover material on the outside. I found an industrial seamtress to sew a large 2 way pull zipper all the way around the outside. There is a "page" between every plastic window. Cost for sewing $20---Total cost $50.
With the 3 windows from the soft top and my upper halfdoors-it would still fit behind the backseat between the tailgate. I have used it problem free for 7 years now.
Here are a couple pics.

I got a window roll for my factory top at Q-track for an LJ works well I also use one of those float tubes helps keep it from creasing.

The Trektop NX has really large side windows, and they're braced at the corner. So I'm not positive how neatly they will roll into the Clover Patch. I'll see if we've got one around here somewhere.

I also haven't tested the new windows in our window roll thing. I suspect they'll fit, and it will keep them protected, but that it won't roll as neatly.

Being this top and the rampage top are similar I would say trying to role up the side window is a very bad idea. Reason being the windows have to wrap around the corners and the plastic pieces that clip into the rail would get bent up and ruined if you tries to roll the window up.

This is Opposed to the a the windows on a standard top which are flat.

I don't know any better way to describe it, hopefully that makes sense.

+1.

I have a Rampage, and had a clover patch roll for my OEM windows. I really don't think rolling the windows is a good idea on these tops.

Thanks for the feedback folks. It sounds like rolling the windows might be a no-no

I guess I'll just continue to toss them in the back until I can think of a better way to store them. I can't really leave them at home since there's rarely a day that goes by where it doesn't rain at some point.
