Best Wash/Wax
 
I just got a 2010 Sahara Unlimited in the maroon color (They call it some sort of red) and wondered what the best wash\wax was to use on it to help it from looking like crap after it gets wet! Water marks like crazy now.

Anyone have recommendations for a wash with wax stuff included in it?

Thanks

Dirt and mud would cover up those water marks perfectly. :D

I prefer Turtle Wax Ice products. Seems to be good enough for me.

I got mine my current TJ back in May, and it has only been washed ONCE--the first week I got it. I am PROUD of my mud!

Good stuff. It works well on the plastic as well. Use a chamois to prevent the water spots.

Good choice of Wrangler. That color sure looks nice when it's clean and polished.

daggo66 08-13-2010 10:55 AM

BTW, the color is red rock.

Canuba wax is still the hardest wax around. Did you know that wax will start breaking down at a rate of 2 percent a day. Do the math.

daggo66 08-13-2010 12:30 PM

Turtle Wax Ice is so easy to put on that you could easily do it every wash or even every other wash. It's not even close to the labor needed with carnauba wax.

Good Luck

turtle has a whole line of ice stuff, I like the interior cleaner, no gloss and it seems to be pretty good so far at not attracting dust. Haven't washed mine except to knock chunks off the glass and door handles (I was in a hurry... got some funny looks rolling out of the bay with clean glass and chunks on the hood ;) ) so I'm not sure how the wax stuff works yet, but it's good to hear it won't chalk up on the plastic :)

Any good car soap with Miss Universe in a bikini ( for the guys) or Mr Universe (for the girls) doing the work while sitting back watching with a cold one.

I just tried Eagle One Nano Wax (was on sale for $3.99 at Advance Auto) for the first time - quick, easy, and it looks great. I am not sure how long it will last. But, it removes water spots.

Zaino is probably the best (and the most expensive) but it's a ton of work. I used it mainly on an old Cadillac show car I used to own. I now use the Turtle Wax Ice as it's so quick and easy. McGuires products are great too especially if restoring older oxidized paint using their 1,2,3 step system.

Keeping a Jeep clean that you use and enjoy to its fullest is an exercise in futility; life is too short to try and keep it spotless.
I blast it clean every now and then and spray on some Protect All. It's good stuff; I know people who've won car/motorcycle shows using just Protect All. Works on the black plastic and textured paint too.

Get it clean, do your maintenance, get back to life.

Cause this happens and you shouldn't let it make you into a mental case.
