tazoez The dryer pushes down on the top so bad that you are pushing up with ur hand following it so it doewnt push down too far and rip.

DrDanimalSize I thought the dryer didn't actually use any heat, just a lot of wind...

I have. Not too bad. No leaks but I don't recommend doing it too often. IMO, I think the high pressure and dryer (can't not use it here) stretch the fabric (or it could be just my imagination)

Trektop NX in Brushless/Touchless Car Wash: After-Action Report

I'm a fan of knowledge-sharing, so here's my first-hand account of taking my JKU w/ Bestop Trektop NX through a brushless, touchless wash a few minutes ago:

This particular wash had three options. I chose the least expensive, as it deletes the blower/dryer phase at the end, which I definitely didn't want to mess with. The option I chose included a low-pressure foam pre-wash, a high-pressure wash pass, and finally a low-pressure rinse.

The verdict: Not too bad. No penetration on either of the low-pressure cycles. I did get penetration during the high-pressure pass at the zippered seams on the sides of the back window. When I was done, I pulled into a space outside and opened the tailgate to investigate. I had droplets at the bottom of the rollbars, some on the top of the subwoofer-box, but none in the rear center down by the jack/bolt storage area. I was able to dab up all the droplets with four napkins I had in the glove box. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the small amount of penetration. I must admit that my butt cheeks clenched up a bit during the cycle, seeing the water come through. Bottom line, I doubt I'll be doing it again, but it wasn't a disaster by any means. Just figured I'd take one for the team and report back.
