Hard top rear window...

What do you guys do to get the full blow through with the windows down in a 2 door hard top? With the windows down and the top on the wind beats the shit out of my eye balls. I almost wish I had a soft top so I could roll that back window up.

I put the back window up the other day and yeah, I know it'll wear out the struts but those are replaceble. I don't want a rock to fly over and nail the rear glass though.

Someone should make a tailgate with a roll up/down window like the old K5 or 4Runners!

Until then, whats the easy fix? Take the back window off?

On my four door I just take it off. Takes less time than it does to get the damn zipper on the soft top on and off.

Interesting! I'm going to check this out when I go out for lunch. Didn't look at how involved it was before. Thanks!

I am working on replacing mine with a fiberglass window so it weighs less and will come off quicker then glass after I work on a quick release of some sort. I will keep you up to date but I won't have it the way I want till after Jeep Beach and possible not until after August the way work has been going for me.

id love a kit that replaces the windows on the hardtop so it can be ran like a soft top with no windows.

i know a guy didit on here but i dont want to break the glass id rather it be unbreakable


when i fill up the gas cans i take off the cb antenna close the gate and leave the window up.it bounces but it lets out the fumes.

keep me up to date on your project d's as i may do the same depending on $$
