    I don't see why not, maybe don't use the old school ones with the rubber whips, just the no touch ones.

    Haven't had any problems with the "touchless" car washes. I don't do the gas station car washes any more because they jacked up a car I used to have.

    they typically use warm water and after a few times itll start to dry out the windows and they will crack eventually. id recommend the cheapest wash as to minimize the amount of time your getting sprayed. the only down side to that is most of teh cheapo ones dont use the under carriage spray.

    1) why are you washing a Jeep?
    2) can't answer this, mine won't fit in an automated wash... I tried once and took out some lights with an antennae

    i have used the Mikes car washes here in town for a cpl yrs now. so far...i havent had any problems. i just turn the blower controls up all the way when going thru the blowers to help counter ac the force used to dry. surprisingly it counter acts it pretty good. best part is here, if you go in covered in mud they will turn on one of the DIY bays and spray off all the big mud b4 letting you go thru. i spent an hr in one day spraying it off b4 going thru. boy did i make a mess.

    Pretty simple solution... drive up.. fold the top down... insert $$ and drive on through. Kill two birds with one stone.
