I'm sorry to hear that. People in WA swear by that por15 stuff. We used to sell tons of the stuff in our auto parts store. I hope it cleans up nice for you.

DevilDogDoc The rain takes care of my mud issues..... I wax it every few months when I do wash it.

Dirty Palms Buff the outside with cut compound then some form of high gloss polish. Use silicone on the soft top, fenders and seat belts (if the inside is muddy as well). As for the interior, all the products are the same. Just depends on if you want a greased look or a clean look. That's the basics I do to mine and all the other cars and trucks that come through the detail shop.

LiftedTj Eagle One 20/20 perfect vision with old newspaper, then RainX for the windows. Heavy duty power washer, Eagle One soap, and a California Water Blade to dry it. Eagle One Nano-wax twice a year.

aelwero I've pretty much much gone over to the non-washer dark side, but turtle wax ice has both an exterior and interior version. interior leaves no residue or static, and exterior can be used on any surface on your jeep without leaving any white stuff in cracks or on fenders, bumpers, etc. you can pour it on a black fender, wipe it off, and it won't leave anything behind.

Burrdog I love getting my Jeep dirty. I'm not a neat freak by any stretch of the imagination. I bought my Jeep in December but I've already washed my Jeep more than my last 3 vehicles combined. I've had mud everywhere top to bottom and love the way it looks, but I love the way she shines just as much. Oh and another thing, I had a TJ for 2 years besides this one, and I never once caught my belt loop or pants on my door frame until I read the post, "you know you own a TJ". LOL, you basterds!

I guess we all different. I love gettin mine muddy, but I wash it immediately after getting back from the woods, usually before I even go home. I've never thought of mud as a badge of honor like some do. But if that's what you like, go for it. This pic was taken just a couple of hours after a nice muddy ride....

Cleaning your Jeep

I've search and found a few threads but figured it would be good to have a thread about what is used to clean your Jeep inside and out. What is used, where to buy, etc. This is what I've found so far...

For the outside, 303 Protectant is popular for the plastic fenders and soft top.
For the windows, Invisible Glass. Good for the bug guts.
For the interior, Turtle Wax Ice.

What are your cleaning products for all the different areas on your Jeep?
