maintenancerob76 A good practice when zipping your rear window is unzipping the back of your side windows. Works for me and less stress on the rear zipper.

mattjm1017 Alright got them in the mail and they work excellently It took a little wiggling and force to get the zipper stop on and getting the new zipper slider to line up with the 8 year old zippers but a little bit of tugging and some soap on the zipper and I got it all together this is an excellent product its cheap and they had super fast shipping. Thanks for recomending them

rubicon05 When the zipper on on window broke i stitched the window in place with zip ties and ran some black duck tape around the seam to seal it. Been like that for about 5 months now. Havent gotten around to fixin it.

BNotrab Jeep Zipper Sliders

I've never used them but it was suggested to me when I had the same problem. I went to a top shop and had the slider replaced... complete waste of money, all the shop did was put some old pull zipper on. Hope this works for you.

Same thing happened to me. Zipper itself broke off. I yanked to hard I guess. If I can get that replaced cheaply be great. I'm in process of researching a new top now.

When mine broke I went to a boat shop. They said they were backed up and wouldn't be able to do anything for months. They told me it would cost me about $200 to replace all the zippers. I stuck it out for about 2 years using those bungies. The only time it really sucked was in the winter when we got a blizzard. I had snow all the way up into the front floorboards.

prtemp Had zipper problems with an older jeep I had. Took the top off, carried it to an upholstery shop friend and he put all new heavy duty, brass zippers wherever they were needed. That is the only fix I have ever come up with for zipper problems. He also resewed seams that were looking bad.

BLK00TJ not sure about the replacement half. Mine broke years ago along with many teeth so I replaced the whole thing. To get me by, I always tried to park facing uphill and used bungies to hold it up with the roll bar. I had to keep the rear seat folded forward.
