replacement window
 
I just bought a 98 Wrangler and my dog decided to eat the left rear quarter window of my otherwise perfect flip top. I called a couple of places about replacement windows and was told I would have to buy a whole new top. That's crazy! Are there any other options? It's hard to believe there is no company out there making replacement parts. I believe the top is the "Flip Top" by Pavement Ends. Can anyone help a very sad jeep owner? Also I now have a dog that is free to a good home:).

Welcome! I would check with Pavement Ends or the big catalog co. such as Quadratec, 4Wheel Parts, they sell them, but normally you have to buy all 3. Also keep a check on your local Craigslist!

Thanks
 
Thanks for the info. I will keep checking but I haven't had any luck yet. I still can't believe you can't buy replacement panels for soft tops. Might be a good business to get into.

I had a side window on my soft top cut by a scumbag thief about 6 months after I bought it. The dummy should have checked the doors first, they were unlocked! My insurance company found a local place that would make a new one, but mine had the tint and the replacement would not, took the check to the local dealer and fortunately they had a replacement in stock, it was a little pricey, but it matched, and GEICO paid for it.
Later when I brought the jeep back from a overseas tour in the islands, the original top got destroyed in transit, but all the side panels were good to go, I ended up selling them on flea-bay and bought a Besttop.

Keep looking, you never know where one will turn up.

Check with Geoff from Bestop on the forum. For the OEM top you can get replacement windowns. Pavement Ends is made by Bestop but I do not know if any other windows will fit. Pavement ends is a "lower end" product. The fabric and window are thinner than most tops.
