So I am about to order my JL, never had a soft trip but found I have my hard top off on my jk as much as possible and I live in fear of a rain storm lol even though I live in socal..

2 questions
Can you leave a sunshade on and put the top up and down with out taking it off?

I saw in a video that getting into the trunk is awkward because you have to put out the back window, can anyone give me feedback on how impractical that is in real life? I have 2 kids and when not wheeling my Jeep twice a month it kid taxi, with sports gear, beach supplies, bikes, scooters, etc coming in and out of it several times a day..

Thanks guys
I have a Spiderweb shade and leave it on and can put the soft top up with it in place. They have a version for the soft top.

I don’t remove the rear window entirely, just undo the sides and use the included elastic loops to hold the bottom bar (the window will fold back into the Jeep like a taco). It’s not as convenient, but I love the soft top so much I don’t care. Then again, my only kid at home has four paws and fur :), so I don’t have to do that as frequently.

I have found that even when it rains I don't need to have the back windows in. The back area gets wet but the cabin stays dry.
Love hearing this, thanks!

You won’t get wet but if it pours in there it can get a little musty so be sure to dry it out when you get a chance.
