Hi There,
I've just been informed by Jeep Parts they don't sell soft top window storage bags in Australia - they won't even order it from the U.S.
I'd like one for my 2-door but i'm now curious if 4-door soft top owners have experienced the same issue.
In my mind, why sell soft tops with no intention of providing the bag option.
Thank you in advance!

Hello, and welcome to the frustrating Aussie jeep section called spare parts.

I tried to buy one a year ago. Also forget auxiliary switches and the like. No go for me, Jeep parts work off VIN numbers so if your jeep is not brand new then good luck getting anything!
I sometimes just place them in the back behind the drivers seat encased in 2 large carboard sheets with bulldog clips to hold them in. Works for short trips but year a bag would be awesome. The hard plastic sections just fold around.

Hi Muddog17, thank you for replying :)
I also just spied your post from last year about this (sorry).
As there seems to be little hope in getting a mopar bag (for now), i'm currently thinking a combo of pool noodles for the window ends, geofabric layers between the windows (someone was generous with an order a few years back), and maybe vinyl or something a little stiffer as a 'base'. Then bungees to hold everything together.
On a serious note, I love my Jeep but the company can be a serious head scratch sometimes.

You can’t order them from Quadratec or another US site—or eBay? Without checking, I doubt those windows bags have an ITAR/EAR export control.

The list is long for things we can't get or won't get in OZ.
Soft top window bag - but have a hard top one! ( go figure that one)
Aux switches for older JL models
Half top doors ( I would love)
and of course the V8 or the 4xe.

On well at least we get this lovely weather.

I have used Quadratec, for another product, and I recommend them.

I sense a bit of Sarcasm. You're not in the western suburbs are You?

Hi Joe, I wondered about them - what was the postage $ like? Reasonable?

I wonder if i've seen you driving around The Shire :)
Hello Geez,

Could be. I have an Aunty over in Gymea and I have some clients around Sutherland. Just check the number plate. It's a special order one. I 'll give you a wave next time.

I too am a Shire boy. My dad took me to Sutherland Oval to watch Cronulla play at the start and I went to Endeavour field with my teenage friends. I was at the 1973 grand final and the 1978 grand final and the 2016 grand final was wonderful!
