    If they are scratchy foggy (ok...never thought I would type that...but you know...the still white but fogged) then track down your local motorcycle shop and look for:

    Plexus 20214 Plastic Cleaner Protectant and Polish

    It is what many of us use on our plexiglass face shields and windshields. Use a very soft and clean microfiber cloth. --NOTHING ELSE.

    If they are the yellowed or orangey "sunburned" kind of foggy then replacement is really the only option.

    A note: Many people forget that their local upholstery shop can often replace the clear "window portion" for a good deal less than purchasing a new panel.

    Another option might be to use a gentle foam pad on them with a buff wheel and polish compound. Then, a nice spray wax (protectall works well) when done.

    The key is to go slow and with light pressure - just something that's worked decently from experience. :) Every application is different though.

    I agree with C2T. Works great on my motorcycles plastics (windscreen, cluster, etc) but haven't tried it on jeep windows. Good luck and post your results on what you did.

    2" Superlift kit. 305/65R/17. Numerous other mods. And more to come
    I've used it in the past also on helmet shields. Works really well. Worth a shot Chrismad
    BTW. Welcome to the forum.
