Hey all new to jeep and the forum. Just picked up my wife a new liberty and we went for the sky slider roof. Any recommendations on how to maintain it so it doesn't fade ir rip? Also anyone feel this was a bad move?

Congrats and welcome! As far as preventative measures, I would ask Jeep what they recommend at first just because it's under warranty. I don't have the skyslider on mine so not certain what else you should do.

Haven't really done anything for mine and it's just over a year old. I also use it almost daily. As long as it isn't raining, snowing, and the temp is around 40ish or higher, I most likely will have the top open lol.

Yeah I drive an Audi and my kids beg me to take the jeep just for the open top. I think its an amazing feature for those of us who can't handle a Wrangler.

It's by far my favorite part of the KK lol. I wanted a 4 door Wrangler, but I couldn't afford one and the Liberty was the next best thing.

Sky Slider™ Top Care
(from the 2012 Owner Manual)
Immediate removal of any contaminant is recommended.
Regular washing of the top will enhance its life and
appearance, and make successive cleaning easier. Do not
subject the top to excessive heat. Frequently vacuum the
top and tracks. Periodically wipe dust and dirt from the
top and inside of the tracks by hand with an alcohol
dampened cloth.

Washing
Hand washing or an automatic car wash with a soft cloth
system is preferred.
CAUTION!
Avoid pointing a high-pressure hand held spray
wand directly at the sides of the top, as this can
damage the seal and force water past the weather
strips.


General Cleaning
Careful vacuuming of the top before washing is helpful
in removing dust and other foreign particles.

If Hand Washing:
• Wash in partial shade instead of direct sun.
• Wet the entire vehicle before washing the top.
• Wash the top with a soft, natural bristle scrub brush,
and a mild soap solution such as liquid dish washing
soap. Do not use detergent.
• Scrub in all directions, covering an area of about two
square feet at a time. Avoid heavy scrubbing.
• Rinse the entire vehicle with water to remove all soap
and dirt from the top fabric and to prevent streaking
on painted and chrome surfaces.
• Allow the top to dry before opening. Vacuuming the
top with a wet/dry shop vacuum will decrease the
tops drying time, ensure removal of all dirt, and delete
streaks in the material.
• Multiple cleanings may be necessary to remove stubborn
stains. If stains persist, contact your local authorized
dealership for further suggestions.
CAUTION!
Never use an abrasive type cleaner or bleaches.
Cleaners should not contain silicones, organic solvents,
petroleum distillates, or plasticizers. Always
wait until the top is thoroughly dry before opening
it.


Additional Cleaning Procedure

For additional cleaning assistance in removing stubborn
stains, apply MOPAR Convertible Cloth Top Cleaner or
equivalent to the complete stain, extending 2 in (50 mm)
beyond the stain. With a soft bristle brush, scrub in all
directions over the stain. Avoid heavy scrubbing. Rinse
the area with warm water. If the stain is still apparent,
repeat the cleaning procedure. When the stain is no
longer showing, rinse the complete top with warm water.
Let the top dry before opening it.

Protection
For appearance purposes, you may wish to protect the
acrylic (cloth) top periodically. A fabric protectant such as
Scotchguard is suggested. The top should be clean and
dry before application of the protectant.
CAUTION!
Avoid getting Scotchguard on the surrounding
weather strips, moldings, paint, or glass. Damage to
these items might occur.


Weather Strip Care
Lubricate the weather strips periodically with MOPAR
Weather Strip Lubricant or equivalent, to keep them soft
and pliable.
