Window Rail Padding
Jeep soft-top doors with Vinyl windows are missing one, simple, inexpensive, and easily done modification that makes driving with the windows zipped down a lot more comfortable. I added this modification after a rough drive through the
New Jersey Pine Barrens and banging the "funny bone" on my left elbow on the window rail (rod) of the upper door frame. The solution is to obtain a length of 1/2"" ID Foam Pipe Insulation and fit it over the bar (you will have to cut a notch for the vertical bar as shown by the red arrows in the photos below.
Your arm rests comfortably on the window bar (with the Vinyl window zipped down), and if you bump your elbow, you probably won't utter so many four-letter expletives. In addition, the window Vinyl doesn't develop a crease due to hanging "straight down" over the window bar.
