I'm in Stapleton - the old airport redevelopment. You might see me roaming around Frisco - Silverthorne - Dillon area sometimes visiting relatives and friends. I haven't been skiing as much the last few years but am excited to see how the Diesel does going to the slopes and pulling the camper to the mountains! That is such a beautiful area to mountain bike, ski, hike, camp, boat and general outdoor activities.

If you have a buddy with a snowmobile suit....borrow it! You'll be unzipping it to cool down.
Sledding gear is crazy warm. I've been in the U.P. riding in below zero temperatures. Only my hands got a bit cold.

Not sure why but that is damn funny. Makes me think of the Michael Jordan commercial with the guy wearing a tee shirt made with kittens.

I was thinking about doing the same. Do the vehicles have any exterior wrap on them when delivered to the dealership? Or just interior plastic? Anyone have pics of one being off-loaded?

My largest concern is the rail and brake dust from the transport on the paint and your average minimum wage car washer at the dealer scratching the crap out of it. Another real pet peeve of mine is dealer stickers. Oh my those are annoying.

I'm going over mine with a clay bar then wax after my hand wash. As long as I don't did major defects, she's going home with me. I'm not overly selective but want her treated right. Same thing applies to my woman! News flash: Perfection doesn't really exist.

Hood and Rims (in addition to the interior bits) are usually wrapped if I recall.

...probably some other bits as well.

Not to try and sell stuff but if you have a buffer then these are the best thing since sliced bread that I discovered last year.

Nanoskin AutoScrub 6" Fine Grade Foam Pad for DA Polisher

Does the same as a clay bar but in a fraction of the time and lasts longer. As always lube is super important and it makes a bit a mess due to slinging everywhere but I did the wifes Explorer in about 30 minutes..45 max. My F150 took about an hour. The same company makes a lube specific for it called Glide.

This will be the first thing I do following washing it.

Uh, guys these are Jeeps. I commute 8 miles of dirt and gravel road each way almost daily. Most of the winter I'll have a hard time even seeing what color the paint job is. At least I'll know I will make it to town and back regardless of the weather and in comfort too.

Re: 2014 diesel production

There will be an edge film from wrap when it is removed. Claybar will remove this the easiest. I would normally wait to claybar as I have read (everything is true on the interwebz) that it take paint almost 2 weeks to completely dry, however in this case the SFU's have been sitting for longer . . . You shouldnt need to clay bar anyway until spring as the paint is brand new and shouldnt have had a chance to get anything on it yet. Definatly wash and wax it though. If you have the patience and time you should use the Zaino system, it is insanely how much shine you can get from it, but it takes a long time to apply the several coats you need. I used it for awhile, but I now use NXT tech wax as you get almost the same shine with 1/4 the work.

Mine will look horrendous as well this winter....I just want a nice sealant and a coat of wax of some nice clean paint before all of that happens. It will make life 1000x easier come spring.
