The dealer apparently had the top down on mine at some point before I bought it and didn't care how they put it back together. Two days after purchase I drive from coastal Georgia to northern Alberta. Somewhere in Iowa, hit at a good wind and the leading edge of the rear window panel popped out. I thought the top was coming off! Anyway, thanks to this very forum I found out what I couldn't find anywhere else. Slip the "L" into the channel and close the door! Man I felt stupid all over again.

Start the zipper about 2 inches, then put the channel in, THEN zip it in. I put the bottom in last. Start the top of the channel first.

Hate to resurrect an old thread but as a new JKU owner, this thread was really helpful, and might help others. I thought the window L just sat against the rear plastic door frame and the door closed and kept it in place. After seeing this thread, I realize that the L is supposed to be tucked INTO the plastic door frame from the front. Now the window gets a much better seat in place from top to bottom, leaving only a very very tiny opening near the top.

Love this thread. Hate to say I have had my jeep 3 years and no problems until I hit 75 and passing tractor trailers. Searched everywhere and even went to a Jeep dealership in the city I moved to with no luck. I was able to get one side in like this, but the other I may have to take the top back down and restretch it some. I cleaned and lubed the zippers, but can't get the second side zipped more than about a foot after I tuck it INTO the slot between the door and vertical soft top support column. Wish I had seen this thread before.
