|Old Dogger||I never wash mine. The dirt shields my top from the sun, this way it should always look like new, MAYBE.................|

|flyinion||I use a spray sealant on my top (synthetic wax). Spray on, wipe off, done in 10 minutes 1/2 of which is dragging the step stool around the Jeep.|

My top is "khaki" and don't need no steeeenking special products.....
I randomly wash with the Turtle wax/soap stuff & hose it off. Drying with leather or microfiber seems to be all it needs to shine nicely.

Turtle wax brand - "ICE"
works on the black plastic fenders very well.

|WhiskeyMike||I am using turtle wax ice liquid. It's great. Easy to put on. I'm using it bumper to bumper on exterior.|

|TrueBlueJK||NuFinish sounds like it might do the trick.|

I wash my jeep as do any other car I have owned. For the Hardtop I use Meguiars Quick Wax spray. Works great and keeps it looking new. About 1 year old right now.
Others have used some Turtle Wax spray product, but assume the Quick Wax is along the same lines. No residue build up or anything.

|RoadiJeff||How would a touchless car wash do any damage to a Wrangler? I can't see it being any different than washing it manually with a power wand at a DIY car wash, which we've done several times now.|

Try a non-wax based polish. (Nu Finish comes to mind). It is easy to apply, and doesn't whiten. Every 6 months or so is sufficient. For the first application, give the top a good cleaning and apply twice. One caveat... keep it off of any rubber.
Oh.. I am assuming that your top is the textured standard top (black) and not the body color gloss version.
And I 2nd what Davidsjeep said. In my experience, auto carwashes beat the heck out of Wranglers.

I don't know what to use, but I do know that the Automatic touch-less carwash is not a good idea. I started finding chips in the paint and needed to use my black touch-up paint pen...
I guess that I do use my Turtle Wax, Spray&Dry carwash wax/polish... So that might help.
I love that stuff, it's super easy to use, and if you get a good drying rag it leaves a really nice finish with no waterspots.

|Rtone1583||Manual car wash and whatever wax/protectant they put through their system. Haven't seen the top of it in a couple of years but the sides are still looking good and going on 4 years old now.|

What do you guys clean and protect your hardtops with?
I know it's painted black, but I want to use something that will keep it looking the way it is for a long time. Anyone use wax or any other similar product on it?
