Doc... Duh.
Apologies if there are threads on this. I searched and each one spiraled into comments on whether to buy one rather than how to maintain it.

I have one and couldn’t find any official jeep info on maintaining it. I don’t think Besttop provides the soft top for the sky one touch.

Specifically I was looking at best product to seal it (303, etc), how often to do so, and if anything in the motor needs lubed and how often with what.

@JeepCares if you have a link or can chime in on the official answer would be amazing. The top is great and hoping to keep it that way on the long haul.

George, with no disrespect to FCA's above response intended, I can't help but think this is what they said....

"FCA has no official products for cleaning their Power top."

I really think you can't go wrong either with the Bestop line of soft top cleaners and protectors, or much raved about Formula 303....

Many soft top owners, myself included use 303 (the fabric version.) Once applied, nothing IMHO sticks to the soft top that can't be removed with water. I'd imagine the power top has similarly fabric. :)

Thanks. I was hoping @JeepCares would at least have official motor maintenance. If it’s maintenance free that’s great. If it needs any points lubricated, cleaned, etc that would be helpful. I would hope they inform their dealerships how to perform maintenance on these and can in turn tell us rather than just trusting the dealerships to figure it out.

Seems like I have good advice on the fabric. Still unclear on track and motor.

Anything in the owner’s or supplemental manual?

There’s a small paragraph that says use a high quality cleaner. Nothing about how often to protect it or more importantly anything on the motor maintenance or lubrication points.
