this may be a dumb question...but can you take a soft top through an automated carwash or will it tear it up?

you can run the Jeep through a no touch car wash on the fly.
if you plan on washing it DIY is always best
The additives they use can damage the windows, even in the touchless washes....

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

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.

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

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
