Newbie ?: Soft top / Sunrider question.

If I fold back the Sunrider portion of the soft top and want to drive on the highway, do I need to take out the back window?

Thanks for the input or experience in advance.

If It's nice enough to fold back the top I always take all the windows out too. I would thing opening the zippers would let enough pressure out.

you can just unzip the sides of the back window, HOWEVER they owners manual says to remove it

I have actually driven with the sunrider open and back window fulled zipped.

OMG i know ! It didn't hurt it.

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.

I roll up my back window and place them in the elastic loops that snap onto the rear top bar. My dealer knew almost nothing about my Jeep, but YouTube videos and this forum have answered every question except one....how the heck can I make enough money to keep modding this thing!

Don't do that.....your window will end up all scratched up. The window rubs against itself and the dirt on the window causes scratches.

Easiest thing to do is to unzip the window (I go from left to right so that it cannot unzip itself) and let the rear window flop inside the cargo area (with the window bar still in place).

Since I have Tuffy trunk enclosure, so I keep a fleece blanket on top of the trunk enclosure and let the window lay on that.

That is the quickest and easiest way to drop the rear window while in sunrider mode.

I see why I'm a loner....and I love it!
