Does anyone have a good way to keep your rear panels and back window in the jeep when the top is down? The windows won't fit behind the rear seat without getting all bent up. I have see these "roll-pack" things on quadratec... but it does not seem the rear panels are really made to roll. What do you guys do?
This jeep is my daily commuter and I like going topless... but the summer-time thunderstorms suck. It does not do well to have the laptop and business clothes soaked in a thunderstorm.
I had a friend of mine use some fabric bought at walmart and sew me up a sleeve just larger than the side and rear panels (they lay flat) and I stow them up on top of the roll bar/sound bar, just cut out a piece of cardboard the same size to keep it rigid......use some velcro to secure it up there, has worked great for me.
Someone suggested rolling them around a pool noodle. Put towels or something soft between them and put them in a cloverpatch or other bag to stow them. I put mine in the bags that attach to my boot when it's on....
Their made out of cloth-like material. they bend and fold easily and straighten out when put back on. To keep them flat, put them under your rear seat. to secure them, put all of them in the trunk area and fold the top down overtop.
Mine get folded and shoved under the rear seat when not in use (and they're never in use). Wouldn't recommend it if you like to care of your things, but I don't. It's why I can't have nice things
hahaha that is literally one of the best posts i've read in a long time, if not ever
i'm with burton so x2 for folding them in half and putting them in the "trunk."
the back window: unzip both zippers towards the top corners, roll it up like a fatty with that sliding bar thing. i think my jeep came with the elastic straps with the button that snap in by the back window, or i randomly found some that work perfectly. then put the top down....

hahaha that was def. one of the best posts I've read. Yea they're designed to be rolled up. I would leave mine right in the bed, but someone is bound to steal them right out of the back of the Jeep. Plus those weren't cheap @ $20 for the pair of scratched up spice windows

Doesn't the rolling of the side panels harm the plastic lip that keeps the panel in place? I have stayed away from rolling them just because of that. I have not tried to get them under the seat... but it seems like they would still be too big.
I will try rolling them... seems like many people do that.
I do the same. I rolled my back window and secured it in place with the elastic straps. However, my side panels fit behind my backseat, and don't crinkle...not sure what you're doing to make them crinkle?
mine are rolled up and I rolled up the back window and kept it attached and it all gets stuffed behind the seat with the fishing poles, stanley tools, river shoes, oil jumper cables and lord knows what else..i am a pack rat..my anti freeze is under the seat with more jeep essentialswd-40,rope bungees... ya just never no
