I am new to this soft top thing. What do you all use to clean the top and windows? Anything special, or just go to town on it with my normal cleaning stuff? I would like to try and make these windows last as long as possible.

Dirt holds my Jeep together. You wash your Jeep too often it’ll end up broken on a tow truck or I’ll have to tow it home on a strap lol

I used to wheel a lot. . .

Maybe you should take the windows off to brake clean/sos them. Then they’re just piece of plastic and not part of the Jeep. Your trackbar may have a better chance of surviving.
