My son's '01 Jeep has a soft top, and either somebody cut it, or it tore/cracked. A complete new soft top, or hard top, is completely out of the cost range.

Can the clear rear window itself be repaired? Or can just the zippered rear window replaced?

Not sure about the Jeep, but a place that works on convertible tops or custom boat tops might be able to help you out and save you the cost of a new top.

I wanted my front ones tinted. A shop here said they could cut the clear plastic out and put in the tinted pieces for me so i assume it could be done. If not this should be what your looking for.

Hit up quadratec great knowledge groupe of guys and there shop is litterley 10 min away from my house. . i'm sure they would sell some kind of zip up window.... Bit of advice that i followed when I had my jeep. Cheap CD player and dont leave anything valuable in it when you have the soft top on. And always always always leave your doors unlocked with the soft top up.... If someone wants somthing there going to take it but remember. It is always cheaper to replace a walmart radio than it is to replace a soft top. What i don't get is its not that hard to break into a wrangler all you need to know how to do is use a zipper.... I geuss hoodlums these days dont stay in school long enough to know how to do that


I still my my old monster.

Sorry this happened - If you weren't from Jersey, I'd say someone probaby cut it, but after the weather we have been having, it actually might have happened from the wind or when something small hit the plastic. Early one morning, I went to take out the plastic cover for my son's stroller (similiar material) and it shattered in my hand when I went to pick it up (didn't use much force) and the normally flexible material was as brittle as paperthin ice. one piece I brought inside was fine once it warmed up. Not sure how cold it was out, but this was INSIDE the car...
I KNOW there are other places that get MUCH MUCH lowere temps, but I'm just tellin' ya what happened when I came across a similiar material at sub-frozen temps...

Hope you are able to get it repaired for a decent price - till then, seal it on both sides with clear packing tape and call it a day.

My firebird was a convertible and I replaced just the rear window at a place that specialized in convertible tops. But that was 40 years ago. I am sure if you look up convertible top repair or something similar you will find what you need.
