Flitz is a good product. It works for awhile and then the fog and scratches come back. www.flitz.com

Go to a marine store and get a cleaner/polish. Check Bass Pro Shops online if you do not have a marine store near you. My 2002 windows are still 90% like new condition.....

Just Empty Every Pocket.......yup they are empty all right.................

What I did.......I removed the windows and cleaned them with a soft towel and a mild mix of dishwashing liquid and warm water. after I dried them, I layed them flat on piece of carpet and applied Mother's FX polymer car polish to them with a soft sock. I was able to get them crystal clear again, with all but the deepest scratches removed. I did both sides, and the sock I used turned black, even after washing the windows first. The polish was $6 at Wal-Mart. Of course, I ended up polishing the entire Jeep, just in time for the winter crud. My son even asked me if the windows were new!

This stuff seems to work pretty well. Haven't used on YJ but kept my TJ windows from getting screwed up.

I've been told that the waxes in lemon Pledge will polish the scratches out but I have not tried it. A bonus is that water slides right off it; a close friend who is a pilot told me they used Pledge on helicopter windows in Vietnam for just this reason.

You can't teach an old dogma new tricks.
