    So you got your Jeep dirty :rockit: What soaps are you buying with good results?
    I have been using Premium Wash Wax & Protect.

    Foam cannon - tough mudder soap
    Regular wash - stripper suds

    I have soo many bottles from Chemical Guys for my other vehicles but these two get used the most on the Jeep

    Foam Cannon: Chemical Guys Mr. Pink
    Regular 2 bucket: Mr. Pink or Mother's Wash and Wax
    Rinseless: Optimum Wash and Wax (Do this a lot! Easy and works well, if it's really dirty I'll take it to the coin op and rinse first)

    I really like that NuFinish. I got some years ago as a gift and thought, no way. Tried it and it worked great and did last. I still like the old timey Blue Coral Mr Miyagi paste stuff but that liquid is great when tight on time.

    I use the zip wax and nu finish as posted above. The nu finish is great for winter prep as i think it last a while and protects from salt pretty good.

    I actually use a wash/wax combo I bought at AutoZone. Came in a twin pack with both bottles being the kind you hook straight to the hose and then spray on. They don't seem to carry it any more on their website and I'm too lazy to go out to the garage in the cold to look at the jug. It actually works pretty well. Foams up really nicely right out of the sprayer and rinses clean.

    Until now I am still not yet satisfied with my cleaner. It's really an unending job for me since I need to wash it with soap and then apply some gloss on it..it really sucks cuz it's time-consuming for me.

    Yes it is time consuming to keep the exterior clean with some wax. However that keeps the finish in nice shape & all the effort was worth it !
    For best results, it is wash, clay bar, and then wax.
    Of course then it is onto under the hood ...:)
