Re: Driving with the rear glass up, Yes or No???

Ive thought about setting up something on the struts or the latch that would allow the glass to be open like 8 inches for airflow but not all the way open and sticking up.

Re: Driving with the rear glass up, Yes or No???

does no one watch myth busters??? didnt they determine that using the A/C was lighter on the wallet than opening windows.

Personally my front windows are tinted, that being so I MUCH prefer to have my windows closed and the A/C chillin me down during the hot days, that said on warm days all the windows are down and the sunroof is open.

I ride with all windows+sunroof+hatch glass open all the time. I love the airflow and I've had no issues with it. Its worth it to me to be one step closer to topless.

CO, carbon monoxide is deadly and can cause permanent brain damage, depending on the levels inhaled. CO2 is what we exahle and what most of the atmosphere is comprised of. If you run with the rear glass open, you will inevitably be inhaling deadly gases.

Going to be kind of hard to get CO up to the front unless you are sitting at a light or stuck in traffic. If you start getting sleepy drive faster.
this!

I completely agree with this (other than carbon dioxide making up most of the atmosphere...at least on earth...), and after working with numerous patients who have suffered brain damage from carbon monoxide, it certainly is not something you want to have happen! Most do not even know they are being exposed until they pass out - of course, this would be even worse if you were driving at the time . As others have said, this is mostly a concern if you were stuck in traffic or for one reason or another idling away with the rear hatch open. I wouldn't expect a significant amount to enter while clipping along at highway speeds with every other window open.

On a technical note, the eath's atmosphere is only roughly .04% carbon dioxide. Most of our atmosphere is Nitrogen (78%) and Oxygen (21%). The remaining ~1% is made up of carbon dioxide, argon, and various other gasses, for those interested in a science lesson.

Re: Driving with the rear glass up, Yes or No???

I have done this many times. I love it! I originally did it with old gas struts and the glass bobbed a lot as I drone around, but after new struts the glass stays up. With good struts I can't see the wind or bumps causing it to close and you would have to come down off a jump to get it to close hard enough to break. If I am sitting in traffic I leave it closed because the hot exhaust fumes will rise up and enter the Jeep, but while moving it isn't a problem. The 4Runners have a rear spoiler type thing that directs air flow from over the top down the back to keep the fumes out while moving. But it even states not to open the rear glass while sitting in traffic.
