My YJ has two big plastic knobs above the front speakers. Just unscrew them, one on each side, and the windshield folds down. Don't need any tools, no need to remove the wipers. Hopefully that's more like what the new one will be.

I think I still have the VHS version of that video. 
I remember watching it that afternoon I brought my jeep home.

My BYS has holes where the knobs used to be. 

All you have to do is hit the brakes with no top on while you're moving and the windshield folds down automatically.  ;-)

they only get cheaper so you have to replace them more often

Jeep parts get cheaper  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: that's a good one! Only thing that'll happen they will stop making parts for the JK. Also new cool stuff will only be for the LJ. Ask the TJ owners about the struggle.
