soft top rear window

This was brought up in the YJ forum, but applies to TJ's as well...

Some Soft top rear windows get hazed up from the roll up straps, well - I can't roll my rear window up I (ok- Pavement ends tops don't roll).

I just use some of these tarp clips and bungee it to the roll bar. The back window lays flat along the ceiling.

It works fine if no one is in the back seat (at least no one taller that 5 foot).

No rolling = no scratches.

Not great...

but cheap (as this forum implies)

Your link is dead. Picsman! Pics!

I like this idea but I need to see some pics of all the parts installed, and a pic of the window actually tied up would be nice. If you could.
