Types of Jeep Wrangler Tops and How to Maintain Them
There are many different kinds of Jeep tops, such as modular soft tops and two-piece hard tops, but the majority of Jeep tops are either hard or soft. Just as it is important to protect your doors with Jeep door handle inserts, it is also important to protect and maintain your Jeep Wrangler tops. Read on to learn about the types of Jeep Wrangler tops and how to maintain them.
Soft tops are easy to attach and remove, so they are a very convenient top to use. If you want to soak up the sunshine, all you need to do is remove the top. In fact, the tops are so easy to remove that you can do it by yourself. A few different types of soft tops are framed, frameless, modular, and bikini.
Soft Top Maintenance
To keep your soft top in tip-top shape, you need to perform routine maintenance. Washing your Jeep once or twice a year may not be enough to keep sap, bird droppings, debris, and more off the top of the vehicle. Luckily, washing your soft top is fairly easy. All you need is a washcloth, warm water, and dish soap. Because dish soap can leave an oily residue, some Jeep owners opt for a specialized cleaner for their soft tops.
Hard tops are not as easy to remove as soft tops, but they provide excellent protection for your Jeep. They also have more insulation and are excellent at keeping out bad weather. A few examples of hard tops are single body, one-piece, and two-piece tops.
Hard Tops Maintenance
Washing your hard top is fairly simple, and you can use the same cleaners that you use for a soft top. You can either use dish soap, water, and a cloth or a cleaner. After thoroughly cleaning the top, it is best to apply a protectant to prevent UV damage and scratches..
