Came across this guy on IG who found a temporary fix for the wavy windows. He used butt connectors somehow. I don’t have my Bronco yet to try and figure out how he did it, but it looks so much better.

Looks interesting. Hope it actually works long term.

I remember reading about it. I think he inserted them there at the buckle to tighten up the tension in the strap.
It's worth a shot, anyway.
I'll be trying it if I see the level of waviness is beyond my ability to overlook it.

When this is applied, does it prevent the "tilt up" access option at the back? I thought I read that the windows had that play in them so the top could have that option for better access of the cargo area.

Change the angle of the camera? Still looks sloppy to me 🤷

I was wondering about this too, but in his comments he mentions he’s still able to tilt it up.

I saw this before but still don't understand exactly what he's doing. I have a ton of butt connectors, so I guess I'll take a look when my Bronco gets here.

Big improvement. I just wish they had used thick windows like BesTop uses...it would improve the look big time....I don't think many would mind giving up that little tilt feature for straight good looking windows.

Buckles at top of wavy window, you can see the blue ends of the butt connector

Ohhh! I kept thinking how the heck is he fitting the strap into a butt connector! Now I see. Thanks for the visual.
