Where and how do you store your soft top windows in the JLU when the top is down?

2004 TJ & 2020 JLUR
I did a quick search and didn't notice anything about this. I just upgraded from my 04 TJ to a 20 JLUR and don't own the soft top yet for the 20 but I am looking for one right now. The TJ soft top allowed me to roll up the windows, with a soft cloth in between each windows, and stuff it in an old lawn chair bag. I would throw that in the back, hidden right under where the soft top folds down. It worked out great.
Can you do something similar with the new twill top? I heard the corners of the windows have a hard angle piece and might not roll up? What are other people doing to store the windows in the jeep in order to put them one if you are away from home? Any creative ideas would be great.
Thanks

There's a few threads here on doing the same.
They soft top bag basically hangs against the back seats.
But personally I just leave mine in the garage until needed.

I have the 2 door with a Tuffy rear security enclosure. I can put the windows in there, layered with a moving blanket between each one. That way if I need them they are there and I don't need to worry about them being stolen.

I just put them in the window bag and hang them around the back seats. Barely take up any room.

Well, given that the plastic windows are incredibly scratch resistant (NOT: they practically scratch from simply being looked at) I tend to repurpose them as mud flaps when doing "donuts" in mud filled spaces..;)

DTTAH: don't try this at home

I'm in the same boat. I LOVE the new JL soft top as it's miles better than my JK top, but the rear windows are.....problematic.
I have tried leaving them home (lots more room) and taking them with ( handy, but cumbersome). I don't have a storage bag for them but even so, with a bag, they're big. I don't get wrapped up about scratching them. It's one of the costs of the softtop. I'll figure it out in time. The top is more than worth the associated problems.

The soft top bag works great. In addition to hanging from the front seats you can actually put it in the rear, even in a 2 door. It takes a bit of bending to make it fit but I took the time to actually see where the bends were happening and it doesn't require you to bend anything that is supposed to stay flat. You just slightly roll the end pieces to make a [_____] shape (looking down at it) and it slides into the rear. You don't need to bend any of the green clippies. You don't need to bend the male or female sliders. The rear bar stays attached to the rear of the vehicle. Works well.

We have unexpected rainstorms so it's important for me to keep the windows with me.
I also keep the rear seat because I have friends.

What I want is a wall rack to easily store the soft top off the jeep...
