Great tip!

Badfish so how exactly do you do the candle wax method ive heard about it alot and need some kind of lube for my zippers but have no idea where to put the candle wax

jk'n I purchased the Mopar window storage bag from the dealer. Around $80.00. I've been happy with it.

For zipper lube, why pay for it. I use dinner candles that have been half burned and not going to be used any more at the dinner table. Lubing zippers is a great use for old candles.

Badfish you dont need to take the rear window out. i dont just make sure it is going into the trunk evenly so you dont crease the window its a pain to take out evey time so i dont. you do have to take off the side windows. this is on my 2 door i dont know if the 4 door is much different.

Your 09 should have came with straps to hold the rear window rolled up.

thaduke2003 Taking the rear window out shouldn't take more than MAYBE 30-45 seconds- NOT what I'd call a pain! If not, see above post about zipper lube! Mark W.

I was gonna pay $100 for the Mopar one on special order and the guy up here told me not to waste my cash. What I will do is buy 3 microfibre fleece blankets and lay each one out on the ground as the windows come out. I will then roll each one up in the blanket, and secure the two ends and middle with a piece of velcro. I can either lay them in the trunk, on the floor in the back seat or find a bag to place them in. Seems like a cheaper solution for me...

JohnP what do you use on the zips to lube em? Thanks!

tripinbil18 thanks alot gents!

joemd60 Sorry my mistake, I forgot the OP has a JK not a TJ. So that storage bag may not work.
04-28-2009 11:23 AM
thaduke2003 Ok. Let's start at the top. Take the top down following the card that SHOULD have been on the passenger side sun visor of your JK when you bought it.
Next up- Jeep/Mopar has softtop window storage bags available at your dealership.
It'll get easier- everything will break in. Keep the zippers clean and lubed and it gets a lot easier- Mark W.
