Tech shine

Has anyone here used Tech Shine on their Jeep? I just applied it for the first time and was very impressed.....just wanting to know other peoples experiences with it. How long has it lasted you, etc.?

I may give it a try. Salt can be hell on things down here and it looks like it gives good protection.

There are Sooooo many products out there. Jeeps probably don't rank real high on the "Detailed rig" list.

I did look at a youtube video after you posted (it was a Cobra) looks like nice stuff. I think TW ICE is the popular choice on WF simply because you can get it on the Black plastic (which we have a LOT of) so it's an ease of use issue more than anything IMO.

I don't, I should have thought of that. Very easy to apply and very smooth afterwards....just keep the jeep wet....
I really think mud, etc will come off easier....and the jeep is very shiney....weird.

Yes, very easy, took about 10 minutes on my unlimited, being careful to cover all of it. Really smooth, like wax, afterwards...will wait till another rain to see it....it is supposed to last for months....we will see, after I get back from the ranch. I've gotta say, the jeep looks like it was waxed, without actually waxing.

Well, I got it on the fenders.....so hopefully will be ok. Thanks for your response, your input carries a lot of weight on WF.

I am one of those Jeepers that washes his Jeep more than he wheels it. I will take a vacation day to wash and wax my Jeep. With some music going and a few beers on a nice summer day the stress melts away for me. That said. I have a pretty good array of products that I like to use on my Jeep. I have been trying to find a wax that works well and doesn't mess up all the black plastic trim.
I have tried the following:
Turtle Wax Ice. Looks great on the black trim but I don't like it at all on the paint. Never really can tell when its fully buffed in and leaves streaks when looking at it in the sun. This stuff only gets used on the black trim now.

Mothers Cleaner Wax: Works great on the paint but is a bear to get off of the trim. I just quit using it as its too much work on a Wrangler.

McGuire's Ultimate Liquid Wax: Huge let down for me. Goes on easy but leaves a matte look on the paint in sunlight no matter how much I buff it off.

I am going to try Tech Shine as the reviews and videos look good. Thanks for posting this. Hopefully this is the stuff I have been searching for!

I don't know about that but.... I do hope your treatment works out as well as it seems to have on the Mustang in the video. I can't imagine an easier application. I'm dying to visit a Big Ranch in Texas some day.... that must be really something to see and be "out and about" on.
Enjoy.

Do you have a hard top or soft top? Wondering how this stuff would act around the soft top fabric and windows...

Billet silver hard top. I applied it on the windows, it is supposed to be better than Rain-X.

Ok, I know, very few people interested in this product, but I have to say.....it is great. Washed the jeep today and it still beads water better than when I wax! Windshield and paint. Still feels very smooth to the touch. Will definitely buy this again, one day, as I had to use very little for entire JKU.

Oh, I dunno. I think there are a fair share that do/will. I know I'll try it come spring.
You should see my "detail" closet out in my garage

Lol, I've tried many products before, this one is a winner. Sooooo easy to apply....wish I would have invested in this! Only thing is, you have to make sure to keep the jeep wet during application.

Just to let you know, this tech shine stuff is great......still beads like wax, but way easier. Glad I tried it, thought it may be a gimmick product, but not!

Hey @Texan42 ... do you like this stuff? Should I try it?



I can't quite tell from your posts.







Actually I plan to. Was going to apply it over T-day, but now I'm going to be out of town. Probably gonna have to wait till Xmas.

I generally like/use Adam's Polishes products and this seems very similar to one of their products, but at a very good price. I'm going to try a bottle.
I hope Texan42 gets his well deserved cut of their profits!

I wish I could get some of the profits, but I have NO relationship with Tech Shine.....just a really impressive "wax"......thought I'd share it after seeing it on Truck U tv show and then using it. Seems way easier than the whole waxing on and buffing off of other products. Hope it makes it easier to remove mud, etc from the jeep after off roading.
I hope you DO try a bottle and like it as much as I do......hopefully you tell your friends and others and they don't think you get a cut of the profits.
