Argh. My wife just called and said the passenger side rear window blew off on the highway. We must not have secured it the last time we put the top back on.

I'm trying to quickly find a replacement. The top is listed as the "Premium Black Sunrider Soft Top" on the invoice, but all I can find with a quick search is the Black Diamond or Black Twill Mopar windows.

I assume the proper replacement is the Black Twill, as that is the apparently more "premium" replacement.

Someone please verify this is correct and I can just order the one on the link above.

I believe if your top is premium, you'll need to order the black twill windows.

was the top open? windows up or down? travelling how fast when it happened? thanks
I assume by top open you mean the sunrider, as the rear windows cannot be installed without the top up.

I wasn't in the Jeep at the time, but here are my good guesses: Highway speed, at least 55 mph, with the top closed. As far as I know, my wife has never opened the sunrider on her own, as she has expressed reluctance to do so.

Not too sure about the windows being up or down, but my less good guess is they were up.

EDIT: Confirmed: Speed was about 55 mph, top and windows were up.

Thanks for the tip. Called a dealer. Out of stock, the price was over $500, 5 day wait, and we would have to go pick it up.

Called Quadratec, the price is only $319.99 with free shipping, but the window is currently unavailable and unknown when it will come in stock.

Looks like we will use the dealer.

Thanks for the tip. It's the passenger side rear window/panel.

This is the part according to Quadratec:
Mopar 5VN12FX9AF Clear Soft Top Window Passenger Side in Black Twill for 18-20 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited
https://www.quadratec.com/p/mopar/soft-top-window-clear-wrangler-jlu/black-twill-passenger

Looks like it is available:
https://parts.moparonlineparts.com/oem-parts/mopar-side-glass-5vn12fx9af

Price was only about $270.

However, I am not sure how reputable those places are. More importantly, I'm not sure I'm getting the right part. Especially because I get this when I enter my 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 3.6L as my vehicle:

"This part does not fit your 2020 Jeep Wrangler CHANGE VEHICLE"

Great suggestion about Bam Wholesale and checking the part number. Not only do they have the best price I've seen, but they are also prompt, knowledgeable, and helpful with their communication. I had the wrong part number and they corrected it based on my VIN.

There have been some recent complaints about BAMs lack of communication on backordered proximity handles and wiring. All of the online Mopar dealers have about the same price but their shipping varies quite a bit. Some items I was looking at varied from $14 to $53 for the same items for shipping.

Yeah. After checking a bunch of online Mopar dealers, it seemed many price variances equalized once you added in the shipping.

BAM was still better than most after adding in shipping, but then I upgraded to expedited and don't know if that equalized it again. At least it was almost half the price of the dealer.
