Rear side glass romoval mod?

Recommended Posts

I've been researching on doing something like this? I've seen it done on a few land cruisers where they used window struts? I would think this shouldn't be too hard to do on a grand Cherokee wj? Thinking of doing the driver side rear quarter panel?

 

I'm thinking new gasket, window struts, someway to lock it...

 

Anyone thought of this or done it?

I've never seen anything for WJ's but these guys thought about it https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f58/rear-side-window-mods-50263/

I think the ability to roll my rear hatch window down like a Toyota 4runner would be badass but there's too much fab work and potential structural rigidity issues to make it worthwhile for me.

i've seen side window replacements for the JK that are inset panels which hold a rotopax container.

 

i think the biggest thing would be getting it to seal well, and the second biggest challenge would be fabbing it so the hinge(s) and latch all lined up and worked consistently. it sounds like a lot of work - but a ton of the things i've done have been more work than they would be worth to most people... so don't let that stop ya!
