Rolling a 2004 soft top window
 
I have a question about rolling up my windows. I have seen the Bestop HOSS and the Clover patch window rolls. Does the tab at the bottom of the window straighten back out after being rolled? It seems fairly rigid to me and I don't see how it rolls up so tightly. Just looking for an option to keep my windows with me when we go for an extended drive.

Just put the "tabs" parallel to the roll...

I use the Clovers and am a huge fan.

Make sure your vinyl windows are extremely clean each time you roll them up. They are so soft that any dirt left on them will scratch the surfaces & eventually leave them cloudy.

Likewise, to keep them from getting cloudy/yellow, NEVER use paper towels to clean them. Never ever. Paper towels are made from pulverized wood products and they leave a bazillion little tiny scratches behind each time. Eventually they build up into a haze, then to the point the window becomes opaque and then yellowed. You've seen them like that. From having used paper towels on them. Only use slightly moist cloths like old bath towels, cotton tshirts, old soft cotton diapers, etc. to clean them.
