ahren place a garden sprinkler for a while it works real good at rinsing out all kinds of stuff
this works for those that don't like to crawl under their rig

SixStringer I've taken mine through the touchless wash several times. The windows did have a good bit of smokiness to 'em, but I'm not sure it was from the wash. They were old, and had been on and off many times. The fabric and bow system held up fine, but i've since replaced the factory top. Haven't had the guts to try on the new top. haha

Kleemic I'm my opinion you are fine to take your jeep through the wash. I have worked at a carwash for years now and wash tons of wranglers with soft tops as well as my own.

Phrankoff ah no dice! I'll have to remember that.
hopefully not too much longer. Me wants a new TJ with a hard top for these Chicago winters

InfernoGirl The wax stuff they add to it can yellow/cloud the windows....

Phrankoff really? I thought the only problem was the brushes and the giant mops and spinners scratching /tearing into the windows, not the additives.

I suppose that's logical. good lookin'!

The additives they use can damage the windows, even in the touchless washes....

A1bertmarkovski ok...thank you. its just a pain to get the salt off under the bottom...i never wanted to chance it though.

jeffk42 Fabric would probably be okay, but it'll ruin your windows.
