You're not suppose to keep it open. Exhaust fumes enter the cab unless you're driving. It's dangerous.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

I'm thinking ahead for the winter. My dogs need air, now with the softop no problem, but in the winter, I've got to do something.

I've never had a problem with my front windows down and my dogs. Sure it's a little chilly but that's what a jacket is for.

FWIW I see people close the tailgate first and set the hardtop window on the tire and drive like that. If you're driving freeway I'd secure it and I'd stay out of a lot of stop and go traffic too if its avoidable, but I know it isn't lol

With the rear window open, is there some tendency for it to shatter? I thought I read somewhere that driving with it open cause problems. I know trying to replace one is big bucks.

I would be afraid It would slam down if you went over a bump in the road. I put dogs and kids in back all the time with the window shut, they don't complain too much.

I have only had mine open while driving about three times. I didn't really notice the fumes. I had the fronts open too. I had it open while moving a coffee table. I dunno, didn't break and I'm still breathing. I think with the gas shocks in working order, it dampens the bumps.
