Changing front passenger Window

So my neighbor decided she needed to mow her dead grass Saturday and threw a good sized rock right at the middle of my front passenger window. Thank god for tint or I'd have a huge mess on my hands. I went to the upullit yard today and snagged a new windows for 19 bucks and luckily it too has tint, just hope it matches well. It came out easy enough, however since there was no power to the vehicle, I had to unbolt everything to get to the two nuts that hold on the window. Is there a good spot to roll window down to since my jeep is obviously functional, that I can get to those nuts easily? I was cold and windy enough today I didn't want to mess with it. Any help is appreciated.

Yeah, there should be one large open spot in the metal on the door where you can loosen the rear track and take it out at anything lower than half way down. With it out you can open it up some and I used duct tape to hold the window in. The front track can be reached by rolling it almost all the way down, a thin socket and extension, and you have to fit it through a hole about the same size as the socket. The hole is located like 6 or so inches from the other open spot. Once its loosened, take it out, open it up some, put some duct tape in it, and bam. Roll the window up about 1/4 way, slide the window in and mess with it until it slides into the tracks! Hope this helps. I tried pinching the tracks together with the window in to help it stay in there, and so far, so good. Its been about a month now with no problems.
Hope this helps...

Thanks for the help. Once I opened it up I was able to roll it down a good ways and could get to it with my impact bit driver. The only thing that through me off was that the bottom track slides left to right. Once I figured that out bolting the new one was a breeze. Pulling the old window out was easy since it was all shattered but still sticking to the tint. Just kind of pulled it out.
