Just put on soft top and the windows are a little dusty.

Like all my other jeeps anything you use to wipe them will leave some kind of swirls marks(slight scratching)

So reluctant to wipe these things.

Any advice?

I just use low pressure water. Seems to work OK.

The windows should always be rinsed at a minimum before anything is applied. Always use a clean microfiber with whatever you’re using. With no rear wiper, driving on a wet day quickly makes the rear window nearly useless. I’ll reluctantly use a squeegee at a gas station when necessary.

I would be cautious about using the Bestop cleaner and maybe try a small spot first. When I used it on back window it left a hazy greasy mess. I called Bestop and they told me to use Dawn dishwashing liquid to clean it. I tried it a few times and it took most of the hazy greased film off but not all of it. Luckily I only did the rear window so the sides weren’t ruined. All I do to the windows now is rinse very well first and then wash with Mequiers car wash soap and microfiber mitt.

Nice:like: be sure to let us know what you think. O and welcome to the family:fist bump:
Will do, and thanks for the welcome! I reached out to some of my "car guy/girl" friends to get some reccs on cleaning towels and products. I'll keep you guys updated, and hope you all will do the same!

I'm surprised no one ever posts: DO NOT USE PAPER TOWELS.

It's simple. First hose the windows with water or a bucket with warm water and Dawn. and a micro fiber cloth. Then dry with another micro cloth. If u have any scratches or stuff use PLEXUS
