Re: Stir (stuff) up...

Forgot to mention the routine...
I try* to clean out and vacuum interior once a week
Wash once a week with a spray wax/booster wax
Full wax every month-ish
I do a leather cleaning and conditioning ( separate things I find the the all in one isn't as effective) every month.

I will clay every few months followed with a polish (with a DA polisher) and wax ( paint correction if needed)
I use a steam machine for tuff interior stains and engine bay.

Detailing is relaxing to me, so I tend to go overboard at times.. But still love to do it.

Here's a pic of the finished product

And my detail corner in the garage.. ( I keep my ammo nyc products in the box on top. I really suggest looking into them at http://www.ammonyc.com just want to state I have NO affiliation with them....just believe in the products)

Who rakes anymore?
Mulching mower is the way to go!
One pass with the mower at the high setting.
Second pass with the mower one stop above the lowest setting.
You would never know there were any leaves before you started.

I used to use my rider mower to vacuum/collect/bag leaves and haul them away. Then a couple years ago I had a stress fracture in my foot and could barely walk. So the wife bought a mulching push mower (she can't figure out how to operate the zero-turn rider). That fall I tried it on the leaves because I was just too lazy to spend time bagging them. I couldn't believe how they just disappeared.

yeah my spine doctor tells me I had the live hard die young philosophy with my back when he asks about my activities in the 20s-30s lol. mulching mowers are good that's what I use on the grass now, I think of all the years I bagged grass when I could have just used a mulching mower, you don't even see the cut grass. The volume of leaves I have is the problem I would end up with 3-4 inches of mulched leaves and dead grass if I tried to mow over it. strategy now is that I do nothing until mid December when all the leaves have fallen from the trees and then pay a guy $300 to take care of them once. I just wish snow also worked that way lol

Re: Stir (stuff) up...

I used to wash my vehicles religiously once a week when I was younger. Now the back, neck and shoulders protest greatly.

In 2015, I thoroughly washed my Jeep twice...

In the spring to get rid of a winters worth of road salt.

Again late this fall when I gave it a thorough waxing for this winter.

It doesn't get touched all winter, not even sprayed off. Surprisingly, I've had far fewer issues with the environmental fallout rust pits doing it this way.

It still shines like a new penny.

Re: Stir (stuff) up...

Went at my JGC on Thursday, luckily dealer didn't do much prepping, although they did give me some swirls with their "wash".

DA with white chemical guys pad and M205 took care of everything and gave it a nice shine.

Followed up with 2 coats of Optimum Gloss-Coat on the entire vehicle and wheels. Should be good with maintenance washes for 18-24+ months based on reviews. Very interested to see how it holds up on the trim, personally.

If she wasn't white, the picture would be more impressive, but you're all well aware how photos just don't capture white paint, even when it's dripping.

I can assure you that she appears to be moving even when standing still in the driveway.

Re: Stir (stuff) up...

Sheesh....I am clearly so far out of my league here that its almost offensive (to yall).

Within 10 minutes of taking delivery of my 15 Summit, I had found a healthy sized puddle of water to splash through on my way home.
It had noticeable (barely) mud on it before the end of the night.
And on day 2 I threw a lawn mower up in the back to go mow my mother-in-laws yard for her. (Yes, I flipped the cargo mat upside down for rubber-side up)

So....Im obviously gonna have to step-up my spit-and polish game if Im gonna roll with this crowd.

Re: Stir (stuff) up...

Don't worry about it, V...the vast majority of JGC owners don't do a whole lot other than run through a car wash on occasion like I do and vacuum out the inside once in awhile. (As mentioned, I get my teen daughter to do that) If you want to do more and/or enjoy doing more, there are some folks here who really know their "stuff", both from the product and procedure point of view.

Of course, if I'm not mistaken ('cause no pictures yet... wink, wink, nod, nod) you got a black on black, so you're going to have lots of opportunity scrub off visible dirt if you want to.

Tried to grab another quick picture to show the shine, but white is difficult.

Re: Stir (stuff) up...

Scott... what is that you're sportin' under the rear doors? Looks like some kind of rocker panel stone guard. Where did you come up with that?
