Recently bought a trek top for my 2 door. Where the back window zips in it is TIGHT. Anyone using or recommend any type of wax to use on the zipper assembly? Thanks!

silicone spray. Water proofs the fabric around the zipper too. Good for weather stripping around doors, hoods, etc

I saw bestop makes a cleaner/lubricant. Looked at going with that but wanted to see what some others are using that could be good or just as good. Thanks for the info! Have a great day

We have Zipper Lube that works extremely well if you're looking to make the zipper easier to zip.
We also have this video that will detail (among other things) the right order to zip the windows in which makes the whole process much easier.

The Bestop lube always did a good job for my JKU zippers. The soap trick on the original top it came with worked okay for a while, but not great.
