2020 4 door Rubicon
I recently bought a new 2020 Rubicon with the fancy one touch roof. Have to say that I LOVE it so far! That said, have a weird question. The back window isn't meant to come off (easily), so when the doors and windows are off, and the top back, is that back window intended to just stay down and in place? Are there any concerns of stability with everything else off and that window catching any wind drag? Thanks in advance!

The back window is supposed to stay down and closed while the Jeep is moving. There is no problem with stability or anything else. There is inherent drag with the doors off and the roof back. The only thing that will suffer is your gas mileage. Enjoy!

Can you drive with it open? I think you can but not sure how it would hold up over time

No. The wind would shove it down faster than you can say “whaaa....?”

I think the down side to driving with it open is if a gust of wind slams it down and breaks it. I'm not willing to take that chance, but maybe you are!
