Could you get some stick on velcro strips and stick some to the very top inside portion of you window and another strip on the door where they would meet (when unziped/folded in)?? I dont think it would look too out of place or "jerry-rigged" since its a jeep. Velcro is amazing.
Maybe you are not driving fast enough..

And velcro is amazing, but like I said if it is nice enough to open the windows all they way they just come out and get thrown in the back. I don't have a back seat so I have plenty of room for the uppers. I have used my book bag to hold it down before.

Neltronic This def happens to me at highway speed. Maybe some sort of clip that clips the window to the plastic pocket at the bottom of the could work.

mpbannon60 I hated this issue it drove me nuts enough to buy sliders and I love them hod them on my old jeep before it was totaled the old ones slid both front and back these the back portion slides but it's good enough until the weather breaks and I can pull the doors plus it's so much easier to just slide the passenger side closed if rains or gets cold

If you just make sure the door is closed with the widow all the way unzipped and not sitting on the seat at all, it won't flip out the jeep going down the highway.
Yes I do. But I have a rampage top and uppers which may be the issue. I am speaking about my experiences. yrmv.

Yep and if it is nice enough to roll/zip the windows down, it it nice enough to just pull them out. Jeep looks better that way.

monkeee2002 I never had this issue when mine were fully unzipped. they would want to "flop out" if I had them only partially unzipped though, on occasion.

But, after a while I got tired of zipping / unzipping, and started tossing the uppers in the back, like others have posted.

Superkill Two alligator clamps two swivels and cord of your choice, (hemp, twine, paracord). Put a clamp on each end. Then you can clamp it in any position u want!

I don't have a back seat so I throw the uppers in the tub. They lay flat and don't move.

Welcome to WF
The OP is referring to half door/soft upper zip down windows and opening them.
03-22-2013 07:12 AM
hdb when i zip it all the way down and fold it over inside against the door Ive never had it fly back out. when I just want to crack my window I unzip the forward top portion in a triangle shape and just let it go flappy flappy

How you doin'

MGHDTi I usually unzip up to the corner, and then fold it down in between the metal and the upper itself. Holds well even at highway speeds. I hope that drunken description made sense.

Re: Driving with the windows down

I have the same problem. My solution was to pull the uppers and throw them in the back. I just put them back in when I get to my destination.
03-20-2013 07:11 PM
PStov98TJ It should tuck between the seat and door enough so that doesn't happen. I've never had that problem with mine.
