kjeeper10 FYI. A clay bar and detailing spray works fantastic for cleaning plastic windows.

Found this out after my entire jeep got coated with road tar from construction.
Even the windows.

The rear as always has some road grime on it. The clay bar made it squeaky clean

Try it

Vin Yes, you can roll up the side windows

I do the same way. It works good. I use bunges to help keep them in place.

DonC72 I didn't even know that the sides could roll up. Aren't the splines rigid or am i missing the proper way to do it?

What I do is put them in between a sport throw and then put them flat on the cargo area, then put my qtec cargo floor liner on top. I leave my rear window unzipped and let it just flop into the bay.

It's 4" in diameter, and a little bit longer than the rear window. I haven't tried it yet but the OP of that thread swore by it.

spankinkopita No, and with a baby the wife won't let me take the hard top off any more
The top just sits in the garage and taunts me for when she "gets old enough"
06-19-2012 11:27 AM
SJS do you have photos spankinkopita
06-19-2012 11:15 AM
spankinkopita I always washed them off with a mister bottle with water before wrapping them in a tee shirt sheet, got a single unfitted for $3 at Target. Held all three panels, they fit with a single fold, sheet between each panel, under the back seat

SJS good question Sunflour
06-19-2012 10:31 AM
Sunflour I too am wondering how to roll the side windows with the plastic on 2 sides (along the door lip and that goes into the body grove)?

I read recently on another thread that a guy bought a 4" plastic tube (home depot, ect) used for plumbing and that he rolls up his windows in between layers of towels and then threas them all inside of the hard sided tube for protection and storage. I think I'm going to try that this weekend.
I do the same with the towels but I'm just curious on how to roll the side windows wouldn't it mess up the hard plastic on the window it self? I'm just scared to roll them and bend

???? What does he mean by no bag? The Mopar bag is a great solution to protect the windows. I hardly ever have my windows in but having them in the bag is great just in case I need them.

kjeeper10 I flop the rear down and use towels in-between the sides. Lay flat in back or at home.

Looks bad but it's safe and doesn't crease
Been doing it this way for years

Yep, I do that too sans a case. I figure if the windows get scratched in five years I can just get new windows. I've been wanting the tinted ones anyway!
