Jeep Scrambler Soft Top

Simple Tips to Prolong the Life of Your Jeep Scrambler Soft Top

Driving a Jeep Scrambler with its soft top folded down can be very exhilarating especially when you're assured that you can bring your top up any time you need protection from the weather. But a soft top won't always work the way you want it to. It's highly susceptible to wear and tear, and proper maintenance is required to keep it free from damage. To help you care for your Jeep Scrambler soft top, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Clean your top regularly.

Although you're not required to clean your soft top every time you wash your car, it's still a good idea to clean it every 3 to 6 months. Look for visible signs of dirt and debris and clean your top as soon as you found any to prevent it from building up and setting into your soft top's fabric. Check your owner's manual for any recommendation regarding the cleaning schedule of your soft top.

  • Use the right cleaning materials.

The proper cleaning materials for vinyl soft tops are different from those for canvas, so make sure you get a manufacturer-recommended cleaner that's specifically formulated for your soft top's fabric. If you have a canvas soft top, take extra care when cleaning to prevent any water damage. Remember to dry your soft top completely to avoid fungus growth. Use chamois or microfiber towels when wiping it dry to avoid scratching its surface.

  • Apply a coat of protective conditioner.

Applying protective conditioner on your soft top makes it more durable. Look for a conditioner that's formulated to give you protection against UV rays, molds and mildews, dusts, dirt, grease, and oils. Applying a protective conditioner is best done after your soft top is cleaned and dried.

  • Routinely inspect your top for signs of damage.

Expensive soft top repairs can be avoided by simply catching the damage before it gets worse. It won't take a lot to visually inspect your car from time to time. Look for any loose seams, tears, and holes. Assess the damage and fix it yourself if it only requires a minor repair.

  • Tips for Diagnosing the Most Common Jeep Scrambler Soft Top Problems

    A soft top gives your Jeep Scrambler that chic and carefree look while cruising around on a beautiful day. It's capable of providing you enough protection against dust, rain, and snow. Your soft top is obviously subjected to various damaging elements that can negatively affect its quality and appearance. To save yourself from headaches and unnecessary expenses, here are a few tips to help you troubleshoot the most common Jeep Scrambler soft top problems:

    Mold and mildew

    Your Jeep's soft top is either made from canvas or vinyl—regardless of which, you have yourself a soft top that's permeable by water or other types of liquid. Unfortunately, it doesn't dry off as quickly as it gets wet, creating a warm and damp environment for mold and mildew to thrive in. If you suspect fungus forming on your car's soft top, you can easily verify it by looking for green or black fungus spots dappled over your soft top's surface. If you do find signs of mold and mildew, remove them as soon as you can to prevent further damage. Using warm water and white vinegar to remove these stubborn spots is a good and affordable idea.

    Leaks

    There are various possible culprits behind your leaking soft top such as incorrect storage or inevitable wear and tear from years of use. Check for water inside your Jeep Scrambler right after washing your car or driving through the rain. If you found water on your interior, visually inspect your soft top to see where it's coming from. Pay careful attention to any loose seams. Be sure to patch up the source of the leak with protective sealant to prevent it from causing further damage into your car.

    Holes and tears

    A torn up soft top won't be doing its job well especially during the rainy season. This problem is usually a result of poor maintenance. But even with good care and maintenance, there's a chance that your soft top will get ripped or pierced by a sharp object. You can easily check your soft top for holes and tears through keen visual inspection. Mend the damage if you found any to prevent it from worsening. You can sew up the tear and apply an adhesive to seal the seams. You can also add a patch for an extra layer of protection.
