Rampage windows
 
Anyone running the Rampage frameless- are your windows blurry? All of my Bestop windows were crystal clear, but these Rampage windows are pretty blurry...

Just put my rampage top on a couple days ago and I don't think they're blurry. They make everything dark cuz they're tinted but not blurry

Sail Cloth, Tinted and Crystal Clear ► WORD OF CAUTION → NEVER use any Window cleaner that contains Alcohol, ie windex and the like. Only clean with a NON-DETERGENT dish soap like Ivory, NOT DAWN. Use a UV PROTECTANT like 303 protectant or RAGG TOPP, both on the Top as well as the Windows.

Thanks, but this does not pertain or relate to my issue in any way. I've been using soft tops for about 16 or 17 years.

The surface of the plastic windows is distorted. I took pics to send to Rampage, but they really don't show it.

Excuse me, YOU tell us then :rofl:. The Sun will rise in the Morning regardless. But you already knew that as well.:surrender:

Wow, didn't mean to offend you. I'm just saying that care and cleaning of the windows has nothing to do with them being distorted right out of the box.

What kind of distortion are you seeing? My back window is distorted alittle but that's from the bend the window has near the top of the window when it gets close to the actual soft top. Other than that I'd say the side windows are pretty clear, but sometimes it looks like it has little waves in it. I've never had tinted soft windows before so I thought it might be from that

The whole surface of all three windows is distorted, like there's very small ripples on the surface. It's even and uniform. Almost like the windows were very soft when they were packed or something. I wish the pictures would show it better. Looking through them, it looks blurry, or fuzzy. I'll try to get better pics. Not that it matters I guess. I'm hoping to talk to Rampage CS today. I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem. One guy on JF said his are like this as well.

I've had it for almost a year, when they get dirty I just use http://www.quadratec.com/products/91083_1103.htm the window cleaner from the kit and they look just like out of the box

my windows are still in the box and will probably be there until Fall at this point. but now that you have said this, I guess I need to get them out and take a gander at them to see if they are clear or not.

Mine are like this as well. I know exactly what you are talking about. Thought it was just from shipping and would go away after a while but its still there after months of use.
