Needs a bath

Ive been hesitant to run my 08 JK with soft top through a automated car wash for fear it would mess the top up. At the same time I don't always have time to wash it by hand, would this be OK or am I right in keeping it out of there

Touch-less?? It only takes 15 mins or so to wash by hand.

Great idea, you can put the soap where the sun don't shine !!

Do your fender wells and undercarriage, just as well as you want !

Good idea, too bad I just spent my downpayment on a brand new Jeep. I'll just buy land and park my Jeep on it.

No I don't know what the Magic Wand is. What I need is 3 or 4 babes in string bikinis to wash it when needed. Been looking for that but the wife hits hard. LOL
