When everything else is detailed I also will use a rag that has a little on it to wipe down door gaskets/seals. I have been using this on all of our vehicles for approx. the last 7-8 years with great results.

WD40 works too. Spray on a rag then wipe the fenders.

I will have to keep the 303 in mind when my order comes in. The whole time I was deciding on a color to order, a little voice in the back of my head kept saying "How will that color look against gray fenders when they start to fade?" If that stuff works like you are saying, it was a moot point. Then again, I would have ordered the same color anyways (Dozer).

Like said earlier- Jk fenders do not fade like the previous model TJ.

My jeep is 5 years old and they still look good.

Armor All does not last very long and stays greasy after it is applied. It also smears bad when it gets wet.

This. ^^^

Armor All gathers dust, since it's greasy. Used it on one of my motorcycles once, years ago. Never again.

Aerospace 303 or Turtle Wax ICE.

Are 303 products safe to use on doors seals and the like? I don't want to dry them out.

On the ArmorAll comments, I have NEVER experienced greasiness or gathering anymore dust than the rest of my vehicles.

Been using ArmorAll for well over 20 years. I live in the desert so it's hard to comment on the water issue. Although I did spend 4 years in Hawaii and never noticed the ArmorAll sprayed pieces "smearing." Maybe it was a different formula back then........ Or maybe these bad issues only affect Jeeps......

Regards.
