The Bestop Top Cleaner kits work great for cleaning the tops. I have used them on all of my Jeeps to keep the tops not only clean, but protected as well. The window cleaner is what I use the most though. It will clean and repair light scratches in your vinyl windows.

If you're looking for something that will be a all-in-one cleaner, Simple Green is what I use. I pretty much spray the whole Jeep in it and let it sit. Then I hose it off and hand wash it with a mixture of Simple Green and water. I have a soft bristled wheel brush that I use to scrub my soft top with and it works great.

Hope this helps!

Haha that's the only down side to wheelin' in the mud. I really take my time to clean mine when I take it out. It took me around 4 hours just to clean the outside and parts of the interior. I pull the wheels off and clean behind them and when the Jeep's in the air, I clean underneath really well.

I know the feeling, I used to ride dirt bikes in that stick red clay. That stuff was like concrete when it dries. Simple Green and a good scrub brush will be your best bet though. Spray it on and let it sit for a few minutes. Then rinse it off. Then I'll use a good car soap and hand wash it. A high quality wax should keep a lot of the mud from sticking too much too.

I use it in a spray bottle, but I buy the big bottle because I use it on everything. I use it to clean my Jeep, dirt bikes, mountain bikes, and all of my other toys. I even use it to clean my hands after working in the garage.
