Rear window problem
I have a 1987 Wrangler YJ with a replacement top from Best Top. The rear window cracked on me last winter ( my fault). I've tried to get a replacement for just the rear window but cannot find one anywhere. Any suggestions??

It's a soft top. I've checked all the suppliers that I know of and there is replacement tinted windows ( rear & sides) for most models and years, but not for 1987 YJ Wranglers. Go figure...

You can get the clear plastic and have it sewn in. Of course this means you have to first seam rip and remove the thermal weld that is present. It is a bit labor intensive. The other thing you can do is just cut the plastic at the natural and logical place "the edge" and sew the new plastic from the inside lip.
