rear window constantly filthy...

does anyone make a wind deflector that goes across the roof, over the rear window? it would deflect air across the rear window and keep the filth to a more acceptable level...i have seen them on other vehicles, but not on jeeps...still looking...

Yes if you don't really rub it, just apply with a soft cloth (lintless) and gently remove the residue when it drys.

Back into the garage? Please tell me you're kidding and you know that is the dumbest thing people do.

Start car and fumes stay in the garage.

you need to get some wet wipes and wipe clean before flushing, sometimes you have to flush twice to get it all.

oops, wrong rear end....

my wildboar top doesnt get near as dirty as the stock top. may look into that. everyone else is correct, since the jeep is boxed dust and dirt tend to collect on the rear of the jeep. all due to aerodynamics (does the jeep have any??).

Well this can go either way.....if you need the dust and dirt removed frequently....then get yourself a better qualified one of these.....




but be careful, if you end up with an over achiever then you won't have dust and dirt, but you will have a lot of smudge marks....

Yea, its worse for soft tops. Mine is so scratched and dirty, I didn't see the cop RIGHT BEHIND ME when I made a no-turn-on-red. He looked at me like i was a dumbass for not seeing him (in my defense, it was 11pm and I couldn't see his headlights because he was so damn close).

Damn the cannons, full speed ahead! |

Same here. Running with the rear window rolled up in Moab and Arizona puts a permanent dullness on it. Definitely a matte finish. Don't need night setting on mirror anymore.
