Mine must have been build scrap. I still haven't found anything that looks like it's missing a plastic cover. :dunno:

:fingerscrossed:

OK! The sun’s out, and my windows are now stored in my new MOPAR bag and stuffed in the trunk.
  • The bag’s design is fantastic. I got my bag for free (thank you, Nicole!), but I’d happily pay for it because it’s perfect. I know there’s a mom and pop outfit making custom bags, but I’d be shocked if the side windows fit in it as nicely as they do in the MOPAR offering
  • It’s a very tight fit in the trunk. You have to sorta fold the sides a bit, and only time will tell if that creates creases. I don’t think it will, but if it does the hot sun ought to sort them
  • Getting the top all the way down is extremely tight. I ended up folding my back seat forward ever so slightly, locking down the top, and then locking the back seat upright. The plastic corners of the side windows are sandwiched between the back seat and the top’s support bar. It doesn’t feel so tight that it’s going to be a problem, though. I’m sure it all fits more easily in a JLU.
  • I use Velcro straps to keep my top snugly in the down position. I feel this removes play and will prevent friction between the window bag and the top. Also, it looks better and I'm anal. :)

Wait, how did you get this for free? @JeepCares Can I have one?
Ive been to the dealership 3 times so far for a faulty PST, and the radio resonance issue from premium audio (which still hasn't been fixed). a Free Window bag would be ideal (especially since they don't have them at the dealership yet)

Its back from headliner install!!! Woooot! Hope I get KZ status today, so I can sit and wait in that status for a while. *fingers crossed*
That is greAt, Eric! We are crossing our fingers with you! I wonder if they’re trying to move the 2018 along to make room to wait for the 2019?

Hilarious. Waaayyy north of you, we'll be preparing for a long winter's nap in September! lol We normally have snow within a few days of Halloween and it stays until April. That's why I ordered the heated seats/steering wheel. I'll be ready this year...
Do you have a soft top? We can swap every year!

LOL An excellent idea, but unfortunately, I also have a hard top. Apparently it's better in the frigid temps. It's not winter here all the time (seems like it sometimes!). We actually have temps similar to you right now - this week will be low to mid-30sC/90s in F. Thankfully, it's a dry heat! lol

I negotiated it as part of my case resolution. (Case opened because I was in D status for nearly 6 months after ordering.) I also got an “appearance package” warranty for 3 years with no deductible (paintless dent repair, seat rips, etc.)

I highly doubt you’ll get one free for warranty repairs... Just place an order through your dealer, and negotiate the price with them. If they care about your warranty issues at all, they’ll let you buy it at cost. (It’s totally worth even full price.)

OK, this is reminding me of the time in 3rd grade when I was out sick for a couple of days, came back to school, and my friends had come up with a new game that completely eluded me... :blush: Where are all these cartoon alter-egos coming from???

(I’m sure there is a very obvious answer that will make it clear that I’m living under a rock LOL :facepalm:)
