Yeah, I've noticed scratches around the edge of the rear window from unzipping it. The road grit and dust builds up quick on the back window.

Or maybe the hair on my knuckles is just too coarse.

I prefer lazy. I'll be doing it that way from now on!

Therunner Picked up some straps at Home Depot for about $5. They should work fine, I normally just leave the window all the way out and home, but longer trips and our summer rain here in sunny South FL make me feel beeter having the window with me.

As for the rear loops, the idea is to unzip to the top then roll the window up and place it in the loops. Have tried this and it hangs to low and moves around a lot. Found it very annoying, as well as the constant moving will scratch the window very quickly. I just unzip 95% of the way then let it flop down into the back. Takes much less time and has much better vision.
I found the same to be true, however, I do use the loops to hold the rear window when I'm loading gear into the back. I find it just keeps the window out of the way.

Mine came in one of the two boxes that came with the jeep

IJump When I bought mine, both sets of straps were in a plastic bag in the glove compartment.

Therunner Thanks

scolumbo Yep, you should have gotten 2 velcro straps for the soft-top. Mine were in a plastic bag in the center console. You could easily make some from a roll of velcro but your dealer owes them to you so I would demand them from the dealer. For the rear window, you should have 2 elastic loops (not velcro) that are snapped onto the top on the inside.

Velcro Straps

This is my first jeep so I am learning as I go. It seem to me from what I have read that my new JK should have come with some Velcro Straps to hold the Sunrider top as well as roll the rear window. I can't seem to find any straps. Should there be straps? Where would they be? Do I need to call the dealer and ask them WTF?
