Leather cleaner, conditioner and wax

Hi guys,
Just wanted to know which leather cleaner/conditioners you guys use/recommend?
Same question for wax's

I saw posts about McGuire's and i have friends saying good things about autoglym. but then again, they don't own a jeep or a convertible, knowing that my jeep's top will be off all summer, I want to make sure that i minimize any sun damage and keep the leather tiptop.


Thanks,
AJ

Leaner cleaner and conditioner: I used Lexol products on my last car, my Jeep doesn't have leather.

For the other interior parts, Turtle Wax Ice Interior

For the exterior: 303 Aerospace on the top and the plastics. Maguiar's Tech Wax 2.0 on the painted surfaces.

I like the 303 on the exterior plastics and rubber. I like the ICE wax or detailer on the exterior paint. Both are VERY easy to use.

It won't matter, you'll hate the leather by the end of the summer anyway, if the top is off very often....... Keep towels handy if you or anyone you know wear shorts.

But any good leather cleaner/conditioner will help preserve it.

I know what you mean by hating the leather in the summer but I got used to it and yes towels help :P , I had a wrangler lease with leather seats prior to this one, but I didnt care much about it since it was going back. my 2011 is mine and I want to keep it in mint condition for a while.

I order my car cleaning from autogeek.net or chemicalguys.com It's more along a professional grade of product and does a nice job keeping the paint conditioned and with a protective coating.

I usually go with the German products. Just got in the Porter Cable orbital polisher...way easy to use. It made my 95 look like i just had it painted.

Here is the kit I recently ordered. http://autogeek.net/menzerna-porter-...mum-shine.html
I then finished off with Klasse, which is a polyurethane protective coating, then some PS20 carnuba on top of that. Klasse is an awesome product, you simply wipe on, then immediately wipe off, last 6-12 months. Carnuba usually last about 6 weeks. Very pleased with the results. You get a very deep, wet shine.

Get out of town...you use the PC too? Cool. It is the best car detailing piece of equipment I have. Of course the products I use are good, so the results are awesome...better than if I dropped it off at a car detailing shop.

Well yeah! I got mine a couple of years ago... wanted one a lot longer, but couldn't ever justify the cost.. Then we bought a couple of Jeeps.. Oh well.... Mine looks pretty good most of the time, his I quit buffing after his second trip wheeling... I could work on that thing for a week and still not undo what he does in 10 minutes.. It's a Jeep after all...
