Avoid trees?

Maybe I'm a bit odd about this but if I'm going to be driving a rig off-road, trail rash is a part of it. I try to avoid it where possible but it is just part of off-roading. Expecting to not get any trail rash on an off-road vehicle is like expecting to not scuff the bottom of your shoes.

Yea just get a few scratches to start it then you'll feel better

My softop is scratched to hell but it's liberating not to care what happens to it anymore, when I take the windows down, its cram, crumple, crease..and you'll do fine.

That is so true.

The first time you remove some new soft top windows you put them inside in a careful place.

Then a month later you are cleaning mud off them with a gas station windshield brush and muddy water from a puddle.

Stay home and don't move the Jeep. Guaranteed to keep the pinstripes to a minimum.
