Nice little trick Jerry. Never really thought anything about it as I had already had a complete Torx set before I bought my TJ.

The one to undo the windshield is indeed the large black one with a raised head, different from the rest of the torx.

once you get it down, it's just like putting the top down. it can be done in just a couple of minutes. you can go ahead and get a sport cage(or a full cage) so you don't have to take the bars off....you can just unbolt and fold.

amerijeep On my YJ I can just pull one bolt on each side and drop the windshield. I've only done it a couple times though.Not sure on a TJ, but I bet it's pretty much the same. Real easy.

How to access windshield bolts in late model Jeeps

I'm buying a Jeep soon, and would like advice on how to access the bolts so we can fold the windshield down. They look buried nowadays. Any accessories to help on this? Thanks!
