Jerry Bransford I agree with the others warning against leaving the rear window open as that creates a negative pressure behind the Jeep which can draw carbon monoxide right into the interior. Carbon monoxide is odorless & undetectable by the human nose.

Not only that but sheesh man, listen to your dad... he's been around the block a few more times than you have.

chucky cheese exhaust fumes will enter the rear opening when jeep is stopped. be careful that you have driver and passenger windows open for ventilation!

nater344 Listen to your Dad and definetly run removing the rear window by him first.

jgano23 i would run the "removing the glass" idea past dad first.

05GT-O.C.D. IMO - forget about what might happen to the glass and just listen to your dad. If I told my son not to do something w/ my car, and he went and did it anyways... it may be the last time he drives it. Besides, if you have luck like mine, you'll open it up and it'll end up breaking for some other stupid reason like you parked w/ it open and an SUV backed into you and shattered the glass, etc... try explaining that one to dad.

jgano23 i wouldn't recommend driving w/ the rear glass open. you'll wear out the shocks on the window and a few hard bounces could break it. if you want you can simply remove the rear window. it should just be a matter of removing a few bolts and discoing the wires.

alig33 yea seems like it would break after it bounces a few times

bpowa listen 2 your dad.. sounds like he paid for it.. yes yo cn drive with the rear window open if your shocks are working properly.

Hard top rear open and driving?

Alright so the past week and a half it's been in the 50s and almost in the 60s here in michigan and I've been itchin to take the hard top off but my dad says I should wait, so he won't help me take it off( hard to do one person) so I had an idea can I drive with the rear window open? My dad says it will bounce to much and destroy the window/top. Any advice? Is it ok to do this?
