Soft Top Flapping in The Wind... Help me out

Okay, so every time I put the top down on my 90 YJ, eventually the part of the soft top that goes from the windshield to the middle support bar works it way out of the folds and starts flapping in the wind.

What is the trick to keeping all of the soft top DOWN when you are cruising at 50 mph?

Thanks for any tips -

Instead of folding that part, wrap it around the rest of the folded top. Keep wrapping it around and around until you have a nice tight roll. Then lay the roll across the back.

my 87 has little straps that holds the side bars down and keeps the unit down... i can go 70 and they wont blow around... if you dont have them you could always try bungee cording it down too

bergy - Yeah, my 90 has one strap on one side of the soft top frame, but is missing the other side strap. That isn't helping the issue.

nubbind - Being that I hardly have any hair right now, maybe that's not a bad idea. Wish I didn't have to wear a suit every day! I remember back when I did payroll for a large company, they had a casual dress code and I could wear jeans, collared shirt. That entire summer, I had the carpet out of the Jeeper, drain plugs pulled and a bikini top with no doors. It was awesome. No I have to drive clients around from time to time and wear a suit every day. I can't pull that off as easily.

I keep a lawn chair in the back and throw it on it. works for me, I am too lazy I guess to tightly roll it up so I just stuff it behind the seat and put the chairs on top
