munroejp Thanks for all the help.

Found an Upholstry shop that looked at it and said I need a new zipper.

$75 for the zipper + $75 for the labor...suck, but oh well...

1EYEDJACK Chrysler has issued an "urgent action item" on the new Wranglers - just short of recall. They are now providing at no charge zipper lubricant for the rear window. FYI.

another way of doing this is a bar of soap, run it over the zipper a few times and it moves nice and smooth. might be a little cleaner than wd40

bedlam1371 I went to a local marine shop and they hooked me up with a new zipper for free. Then again, I went almost 2 yrs without the window because I was too lazy to get it fixed!
Good Luck.

Geoff@Bestop Some people replace zipper pulls with key rings (usually the people who resort to paper clips are CJ owners - but they fix everything with duct tape, a hammer and bailing wire. Nice to see some Mcguyvering on a TJ!)

A boat canvas shop is a great place and a very good suggestion, especially if the zipper is worse off than just a broken pull.

We dont' sell replacement zippers, but can point you in the direction of a company who does. Call our customer support team and ask for the BD Company phone number. I don't have it here at home.

VisionJinx if it is the pull that is broken ( happend to me on my 00 sahara) i had to put a heavy duty paper clip through the hole to get it zipped shut and then i had it fixed a year later at a convertable top shop. the paper clip worked fine i just wanted a new pull put back on it.

SurfNaked2010 bring the rear window to a canvas place that stitches canvas for boats or a place like that they can snap a new zipper on there for you probably wont even charge you.
