Soft Top Window Hangers

Soft Top Window Hangers

Part #:

A lot of us who have soft tops actually do take the windows out and put the top down. Now the age old question becomes "What do I do with the windows?" I used to and sometimes still do, just take them out and throw them on the floor in the back seat or behind the back seat. Other times they end up thrown in the garage over the workbench or some convient piece of equipment. This is nice for a temporary thing, but it does lend itself to scratches on the windows. There are some nice products out there that you can roll your windows up in and protect them, unfortunately the side windows don't lend themselves to being rolled up easily. I saw a friends that were rolled up and the plastic was kinked and distorted. Made for a real pain to get them back on. This does work for all models of Jeeps, so just make the changes as needed for your size windows. I used a 4 door JK's windows for this write up, but I have used this on TJ, YJ and CJ's windows in the past.

Additional Parts:
Wood Hangers (4)
Wall Hooks (2)
Wall anchors

Tools Needed:
Drill
Phillips screwdriver


 

The Parts:
Look for a wood hanger that has a felt liner inside. The plastic ones usually have small points to help grab pants and tend to damage the soft top windows.
1. Find a suitable location to mount your hooks. Idealy your looking for a nice finished wall. Your significant others closet might not be the best place. I have some wall space in the garage.
2. Mark two spots on the wall about 27 " apart and about 87 " off the floor. This measurement can change depending upon what space you have and how big your windows actually are. JK, TJ, TJ unlimited, YJ and CJ's all have different size windows.
3. Install your two hooks.
4. Clip the pants hangers to the windows. The wood hangers usually have a soft liner that helps protect the windows. Hang on wall.

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
