Help!

I have a 97' Wrangler with a brand new Best Top Trektop NX. Ever since I got the jeep, Iv always gone to a self service car wash. Im getting tired of going and doing it myself. Would anyone know if it would be safe to take the jeep to a regular car wash like ducky's? Or should I stick with washing it myself?

Hand wash it. It can get old but the manuals say not to take the soft top through an automatic car wash.

I personally wouldn't trust a robot with cleaning my Jeep.

I don't trust others to do a good enough job, let alone a robot.

When I had my '95 wrangler I took it to the stealership I bought it from for a front wheel bearing replacement under warranty. They ran it through their automated car wash and destroyed my light bar and windshield frame. Which they got to replace. Wash it yourself. You will be happier that way.
