I use this

It gets water spots off for me, and we have hard water... there have been times too, i've sprayed it on the truck and wiped it down with a towel and it pulled the water spots off. Give it a try

Any glass cleaner..........LOL

I take it you don't use a chamoise AKA "Shammy" to dry your Ranger?

i thought at 1st that it was like mine, but its on his back window too, and mine isnt like that......Normally mine are clean until i roll it down, then when it goes back up it does that because of the weather strip....but just wipes off....if its on the outside glass take a razor to it and see if any of it comes off....
