Just bought a 06 Rubicon, TJ, unlimited (I think). I just bought it 2 weeks ago and am loving every single moment. I even find myself thinking up errands to do just so I can have a legit reason for driving all over. Got lucky here (Chas. SC) found a 06 with just 16,700 original miles. It drives and looks like a new Jeep. The soft top is a little faded any suggestions on how to revive color and flexibility?
I hope to learn a few things about jeeps in general from all of you here.
Driving a jeep is the most fun I have ever had "with my clothes on".

Welcome to the forum

To answer your question about the top, any vinyl conditioner will be fine on the top, try to keep it off the windows tho'. Bestop (who made your top) sells conditioner and cleaner. Or 303 Aerospace protectant is very good on it too. I'd stay away from Armorall if possible, it tends to run when it gets wet, and it'll streak the paint and look not so good. But that's just my experience....
