dont use one with brushes, it will scrath the windows. use one with strips of cloth towels. itll be loud but no harm no foul. ive used the auto wash in desperate situations but a self serve or a hose and soap works best

I ONLY use touchless. No exceptions. That way there is no chance of getting my paint scratched or swirled. Picky? Perhaps, but I'm very particular about my paint and how it looks. As for the soft top, I do it often with my TJ. Some water gets in on the top corners of the rear hatch where the seals are getting old but it's just drips, no big deal.

X2 but just remember to keep the top ON before going in
