Jeep Wrangler JK Window Visor
Tips to Add More Years to the Service Life of Your Jeep Wrangler JK Window Visor
The Jeep Wrangler JK is not only a road-and-trail-capable vehicle, but it is also a ruggedly handsome beast that can negotiate with almost any kind of terrain. But just because it is rugged inside and out doesn't mean that it no longer needs the kind of protection a Jeep Wrangler JK window visor can give. Since you deserve a comfortable ride, it is but right that you keep your Wrangler's window visor in perfect shape. After all, doing so will help maintain the vehicle's resale value. Here are some tips on how you can make your window visor or wind deflector last longer:
- Deal with minor problems like small cracks, scratches, and dents as soon as possible.
Because of their location and position, your Jeep's window visors are prone to the beatings that most exterior components usually get especially from the rugged environment off the beaten path. The bushes, low-hanging tree branches, and other factors can hit or rub on the window visors and cause surface damage. Even human beings can contribute to the beatings this exterior component could get. If after washing your Jeep, you noticed that one of your visors have small cracks or unsightly scratches, fix them as soon as you can to prevent the problem getting worse and becoming irreparable.
- Avoid parking your Jeep under the barking sun.
The UV rays emitted by the sun can take their toll not only on your Wrangler's paint and finish but also on its many exterior components, including the window visor. If your ride is regularly parked under direct sunlight, it won't be long until the visor loses its luster and turns out to be brittle. While there are visors that are UV resistant, such feature isn't designed to last that long. So if you want to get more years out of your window visors, you'd better put your ride away from the scorching heat of the sun.
- If you won't be using your Jeep for a long time, take its window visors off.
Are you thinking of storing your Jeep for the entire winter season? It would be better to take off the window visors and just keep them separately. Once you've removed the visors, make sure to clean and remove the residual tape from both the visors and the window surface. Left-over adhesives can be eliminated using an adhesive remover, alcohol wipes, or a cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol.
