Has anyone noticed if their rear soft top window bar looks bowed? Just noticed mine as though it’s bulging out in the bottom middle (bulging towards the spare tire). Looks like maybe the cross bar that holds the bottom part of the window is bent.

Is this normal and I’m only just seeing it?

The bar is secure in both ends, but just looks funny for some reason...

Maybe I’m just used to the straight across JK.

Thanks in advance!

Anyone by chance have a picture of theirs from the side to compare?

You might be better off posting a pic of yours so we can see what you're talking about. Mine is pretty much straight/flat, maybe a little bit of outward curvature toward the bottom but barely noticeable unless you're really looking for something.

Must have left the windows in when using the sunrider feature.
I see what you did there...

Possible, but I'd say my side windows have changed shape more than the back one. Nothing I'm going to complain about, but noticeably different (to me anyway) from when they were new.

Will do! Likely tomorrow evening when I can jump on the computer.

This whole sunrider thing is really blowing up for everyone! Especially all of us used to the JK...

Thanks for this! Hard to tell. Your top pic it looks pretty straight across to me. I appreciate it!

Well, I can say I left some PVC poles in the back leaned against the soft top passenger window for a couple of days and it left one hell of a "dent". I was like o well lesson learned. However, I can report that after the Jeep sat in the hot sun for a day (and not in my garage), the window did "shrink" and regain it's shape. I was pleasantly surprised :like: And sunrider is the best :rock:

Mine is bowed as well, but my assumption was that it maintained pressure against the rear door so it couldn't be wiggled out easily

At least that was my reasoning.

@DKAudioPRO here ya go, definitely bowed like I said above. I took it out and laid it on the ground to make it easier to see.

This is perfect, I really appreciate it. I’m surprised I haven’t noticed it yet, but glad to know it’s not a defect necessarily.

Thanks for taking the time to do that.
