Supertop NX - What to do with side windows and arch bar when top is down?

I made another post about the issues with my new Supertop, but I also have a practical question. What does everyone do with their side windows when the top is down? I've had a soft-top YJ and TJ in the past, but that was years ago and I don't really remember what I did with the windows. I should note that I currently have my back seat out and plan to leave it out for the indefinite future. So storing them is a little trickier anyway. They don't seem to roll-up, and I can't really just lay them flat on the floor (worried they'll blow out). Also, what do you do with the center arch support when the top is down? Just tuck it in the back? Any worries about the foam getting messed up?

As far as the arch support goes I just throw mine in the floor behind the front seats. And with my windows I just toss them between the back seat and tailgate but since you don't have rear seats so that could become tricky. I'm sure someone here has a way of doing it.

The side windows DO roll up. I roll mine up and tuck them behind the front seats, or behind the back seat if its installed.

Same here. I don't even use the arch support, so it's somewhere in the garage. If I were leaving the soft top on during the winter I'd install it.

yeah, I dont use the arch support either. you could always put an adhesive strip of velcro on the back of each seat, then velcro the windows to them?

The arch support goes up front to prevent water/snow from collecting and pooling above the front seats. Sunrider area.

Good to know I don't really need the arch support in during the summer months. It's garaged at home, and in a parking garage at work, so it's not going to be sitting long-term in the rain. I also have a hard-top for the winter, so snow isn't a concern.

That's pretty much my situation as well. I used it once, the first time I had the top up. It could also come in handy if you have a noisy top, but mine's still nice and snug. In a few years if it loosens up I might start using it.
