Can't say for your '07 - but on our 2011, Jeep provides two loop straps that snap to the upper crossover bar. These straps allow a way to hold up the window once it is rolled.

A second thought here is that Jeep warns against driving with just the rear window either removed or rolled up, while all the other openings on the vehicle are closed. This is because of the possible danger of exhaust gases entering the vehicle.

I have the two straps and the snaps inside my top but do u just unzip it completely then roll it and hang it there or is there some cool way of unzipping that allows it to roll up?

I move both zippers to the near middle and then roll mine up so all the weight is not on the loops.

When the window is on, there's one zipper located on each side of the window. Zip them both up a ways, so the only connected part is at the top. :)

i prefer to zip both zippers to the same side ans roll the window down and tuck it behind the rear seat. this way i have a completely unobstructed view behind me. i do this with my tj, but i am pretty sure it can be done like this on a jk too. i can take a pic if necessary.

:cool: thats a kewl idea with the hardtop too, but

Like Hiker said, you gotta have one or more front/side windows open, for air dilution of the Carbon monoxide from the exhaust--

I have my rear window up all the time (except when dusty)-

:rofl::rofl: JIMBO

The zipper up to the near center idea is what I had been trying but couldn't get my zipper on the left side to come loose and didnt want to force it because I wasnt sure it was supposed to. But ill go give it another shot thanks for the help!

My advice is don't do it if you value the longevity of the window.

If they're dirty and you roll them, the grit in the dust will mess them up.
So, before you roll it, clean it.

come on Daggo66...you can't drop that on us without something to back it up. If rolling them up is bad, what should we do with them instead?
Nice warm fall day and I decided to roll up my back window. Early in the evening with the temperatures dropping, I decided to unroll it. CRACK!

:doh:This is WHY I run a hard top all winter.
I can't say I like it, but it protects my soft top & winders

Eventually when your jeep gets old enough it will matter less. No matter how much you clean the winder before you roll it up, it will gather dust and grit and make two marks on it that look like two rectangles of translucent but not transparent marks at the bottom. Mine has that and it matters not. I bought it to use and knew that eventually it would show signs of wear. It can be made to look better with products like plastx. Why worry about the inevitable. Use it and have fun while doing so.
