Is it safe to take through carwash
 
Im wondering since i have a carb on mine 87 if going through the car wash is ok since when you enter the car wash the water gets shot up in the motor from below.

Do you have an exposed air filter on it?


In reality it should be fine. but if you have an exposed filter it might be worth avoiding the highpressure undercarriage stuff.

I do have an exposed filter but i was more worried about like the distributor and stuff getting wet

"No Touch" car washes are ok for soft tops, just don't get mad when some water manages to get through the zippers :rolleyes: Just never go through a wash that had brushes or whatever unless you have a hard op or no top ;)

wait.... you guys wash your jeeps? I just use puddles when available.

Well I usually let my kids wash it yet I didn't know the top could handle a drive thru

lol " let " them wash it :D

I like doing it by hand so I usually do it on my own. But when I do take it I go in the manual one and do it myself. I only use a little bit of soap on the soft top.

Don't forget to Pledge your windows!
