Rear Window Roll

The straps holding the rear window roll up are sagging bad and preventing visibilty out the back. Any ideas of how to keep the roll up? New starps sure, but I'll be back to square one in 6 months and I don't want to take the window out. Thanks.

I never roll mine up ... I just unzip it and let it flop down on the backside of the tailgate ...

Unzip it and let it hang in your trunk, or just remove it and put it in a Window Roll like the Clover Patch.

Best of Luck!

Cheers

I roll my window up. It's a Jeep, the windows are going to get ****ed up. Let it go.

Take the too long straps and wrap them once or twice around the rear bow and secure them with a zip tie. Roll up your window and slip the wrapped straps around the ends of the rolled up window. This will keep the window rolled up higher and out of your rear view mirror

We rolled up our rear window and drove around for a week. The nice dry sandy dirt here in AZ scratched it up nicely.

Not to sound like a total noob but "how do you remove the rear window?"

If you zip from driver to passenger or passenger to driver the first zipper (depending on what side you start from) zips into the bottom zipper. (like you would do to close the window)

Sorry its confusing but how do u take it off?

Zip both zippers all the way to the driver side, then slid the window out.

Just like igofshn mentioned! Once you have both Zippers all of the way to the left, just pull the Two Zippers together straight down, and away from the Soft Top. It should disconnect easily.

HINT: The Two Zippers will stay with the Window on the Driver's Side, and the Metal Tab End that slides into the Zippers will stay with the Soft Top.

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

We use the clover window roll and i love it! it's great for keeping the windows in the jeep for the weekend and especially for winter storage of the soft top and it's made in the usa! Two years worth of use and my windows still look good.

got Jeep got stuff, never enough of the right stuff tho

Am I in deep enough yet?

Here ya go, Shipmate:

Clover Patch Window Roll (Link)

I found mine a bit cheaper on EBAY. I bought two, for my Clear and Tinted Windows. When I've got my top down, I throw my Window Roll on top of my Soft Top, and strap it to the back of my Roll Bar.



The Clover Patch keeps the windows nice and scratch-free! Well worth the $$$!

Cheers!

So if I have to tug really hard, like near violently, to get the two zippers over the ending, silver tabs, I am doing something wrong?

When you're zipping it up initially, make sure the silver tabs are even with each other. If the Soft Top Tab goes down further that the Window Tab, chances are, you may get it stuck, and it'll be a real bear to get off. Ask me how I know!

Cheers!
