Open-air trucks and SUVs like the Jeep Wrangler, Ford Bronco, and Jeep Gladiator now come with a great soft-top option. The soft-tops on these new vehicles are durable and long-lasting, but they do require some special care and cleaning.
That special soft-top material is made in the USA by Haartz Corporation. This is the same company that makes tops for Mazda's Miata and the Porsche Boxster among many other notable convertibles. Haartz doesn't manufacture its own soft-top cleaning products, but rather, partners with Wolfstiens Pro Series. The Raggtop brand of products may be familiar to any convertible owner. These are the products that Haartz recommends and trusts for proper care of the top materials they supply.
Since the top on the Bronco, Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator are larger and wider than most sports cars' tops and since they are a bit higher off the ground, Haartz and Wolfsteins partnered to make a larger brush for cleaning the tops. What they developed is a new telescopic brush for care and cleaning. The premium, large convertible, soft-top and tonneau cleaning brush is 9-inches long with bristles that are 2.5 inches deep. The brush attaches to a telescoping pole that is three feet long and can extend up to five feet, for easier reach across large or tall vehicles.
You can find this and related soft-top cleaning products at the Wolfsteins website.
