    Mega hours today getting the Jeep ready for fall/winter.
    Hand wash whole Jeep, then removed 3rd brake light for clean & wax! New light bulb installed while there.

    After clean, apply wax inside door areas, especially along bottom edge of doors.
    Get seals clean & the trap spotless!

    Apply more wax & lubricate hinges etc...

    Back to black on mats & all exterior black plastics.

    How much time did doing all of that take you?

    Quite a nice job!

    Sounds like my detail day. I didn't think to wax the inside of the doors but I'm thinking I may have to start doing that.

    Instead of wax inside the doors I use silicone spray.

    Didn't see any mention of taking the spare tire/ bracket off and clay bar/ waxing in behind there.
    OR am the only fool that does that :gr_grin:
    Always wax inside the doors / tailgate area / under the hood

    Wow..remove the bracket? I am glad you are motivated to do that! :icon_wink:
    Only in the spring do I remove the spare, clean rim, wax behind on tailgate!
    Since I have the cover off once a year, time to get some air topped up too!

    Always grit and grime around so yes remove the whole bracket including the plates and clean, wax behind it at least 2-3 times a year.
