Bought two of these:
Amazon.com : Velcro Velstrap 36 x 2-Inches Straps, 2 - Pack, Black (90440) : Office Products
One strap in the middle, one strap on each side covering the clamps to keep them from rattling, and one as a spare.

How do you get it to
Lay flat when all the way down? Mine seems to be sitting up a bit. No way could I get one of those boots on it to cover it.

|Bearfan||Very helpful link. So how many people just remove the rear window and roll it up with the two others. What do you do with the rear retaining bar, just leave it in there?|

Thanks for the response.
After ALOT of searching I found this
|05-09-2014 03:44 PM|
That strap (one on each side) is used when removing the soft top completely from the cage. The loop is pulled over a hook on the spring assist assembly to keep the spring restrained while the top is removed.

There is a snap on a piece of plastic on some webbing over one of the cross bars and it looks like it fits on a snap on the same bar. Does anyone know what it is for?
In the pic i am at the rear passenger side. The spring assist is in the bottom left corner of the pic and you can see the strap and the other side of the snap is just above it in the pic

Correct...google search is better and how I found this!
And the windows are kind of frustrating. JKWU is only a couple weeks old and we've already have issues with back window and one side window. Back window has to be because of those straps. I'll look to find a method to hold everything once taken out as noted above...... And agreed the back window is a bit of a b---- to take out.
Thanks! Great answers and help from the forum!

|AgBullet||I've rolled the back window up plenty of time without any issues. You just have to be careful not to pinch it when folding the whole assembly down. The side windows get stored flat under the "floormat" in the bed with a towel between them. I use a bungee on the anchors that come up through the floormat to keep things pinned down.|

Well, this morning I went at the back window again. After struggling with the rear window again for 15 minutes, I finally realized I was trying to remove the wrong side of the zipper! the zipper stays on the window, not the Jeep.
Sometimes I wonder how I am allowed to drive at all!

|Jaxpilot||Newbie, first jeep and it's only been about 2 weeks. How DO you get the rear window unzipped completely off? I've tried a couple of times, but was in a hurry in the dark when I did. Looks like the passenger side unzips towards the driver side, bur doesn't look like the driver side comes off the zipper.|

|JamesWyatt||One more tip: found out the hard way I needed to put on gloves to put the top back up on a sunny day. The black metal bars get really hot even on a 78 degree day. Can't imagine how hot they would get in the summer!|

It's rare I go sunrider mode but that's exactly how mine looks when I do it.

One thing to note about the sunrider position to help fold/position the cloth correctly - it's the opposite of the natural "W" it forms when you move it back.
So what I do is unlatch the front latches and just fold it back naturally. Then go and lift up on it a little and the two parts that are folded forward should be pulled back on both sides. This gets all the cloth pulled back from above the rear seats and provides open sky to both front and back passengers. The final result is a bit of an accordion setup.

|Drmad7||Did it all of the time if I didn't feel like unzipping and packing away windows. I just unzipped both sides of the rear windows and rolled it up. And I have never had an issue with it. It's why I love Wranglers, sooo versatile!|

Little off topic, but i hate to start, yet another "top" thread....
Anyone ride with their soft top in the 'sunrider' position? Essentially, just the first half folded back? Seems like those small clips are just too weak! If anyone has any reference to how fast you can drive with it like that?
In the video I posted earlier, it references you can. I'm curious of real life experiences.

I also bought a boot cover (Rugged Ridge ~$80) and use the velcro straps to keep the arms down.
|04-08-2013 10:46 AM|
|Eichster||I also use my best top window roll which straps to the rear rollbar and acts as a good tool to hold the soft top down when on the road or trail.|

There are boots you can buy if you find that the velcro straps aren't enough. They're a bit pricey, but I think it makes it looks nice in the rear.
There are also storage duffels for the windows. Some people design their own... like using towels and pvc pipe (http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/201...ge-164515.html)
BTW - Searching is easier for this forum if you use google instead of the built in search. I type in "Wrangler Forum [what i'm looking for]" into my search bar, and it'll pull up stuff from the forums.
