KevinTheMick I like the idea w/ the hose clamps. I drive around w/ it up if Im going camping, or throw my bike in the back. My main concern was going over a bump and smashing it, but it looks like this may solve the problem.

castorj29 take it off or keep it closed.....no real need to keep it opened. your just asking for trouble if you keep it open.....do the math!!!...........lol

yj-genral ive never taken the glass out but i have ridden with the glass up several times, one of those times was offroad following more capable rigs around and watching them on the hard stuff. not once did it ever come down to even get near the tire and/or middle brake light. granted it probably wasnt all that good on the shocks but didnt hurt them. and at highway speeds it also has no effects. and not once did i get sleepy but as stated earlier (almost a year ago... dang zombie thread ) fumes arent going to be a problem and more than likely you will have windows down anyways.

TerrorJ2001 I do it all the time considering I don't have A/C. Leave the front windows open or at least half open. As for protecting the support arms from wear - I did this.

silvrevo I was just wondering about taking out the rear glass. And running that.

Anyone do this?

Looks like 4 bolts holding the rear window in.

I saw this post & think it is a great idea.

I just bought my 2009 Jeep Unlimited last week. I had wanted a softtop, but now that I have the freedom top it is great. I would like to modify the rear windows to pop on & off for when I am using the jeep on the ranch. Has anyone done this modification or have any thoughts/issues?

Thanks!

Do soft top owners get fumed when they remove their rear windows?
Good point

jk'n ^^ No soft tops don't get fumed. They are careful to say in the OM though that if the rear is opened, that the fronts should be also or you could get fumed.

donnie I wouldnt do it because of the exaust factor and if you hit a bump wrong, the window would be history.

Jp90Talon IMO it is a good way to wear out the support shocks and its just one big gust of wind from slamming down and shattering.

Hardtop rear window / Your opinion

Do you drive around with the rear tailgate window open? Or is it a bad move?
