2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (New Owner)

I just recently purchased a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (black) and so far so good. I figured I would introduce myself since I have been lurking on this forum for quite some time without posting anything. Unfortunately, I only have one picture to post right now, but I will post more soon.

Keeping this truck clean has become quite the process. Has anyone ever used this chrome wheel cleaner before and have any feedback? Chrome Wheel Cleaner, 22 Ounces - Griot's Garage

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (New Owner)

I have the same black 2014 summit . Congrats ! Yes keeping it clean is a pain in the ass for sure BUT , when this brilliant black pearl is clean , there's no color on the face of this earth that looks better . It just explodes . Good luck and welcome to the forums . Do you have any changes planned for the truck .

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (New Owner)

I already screwed up and used a leather cleaner on the interior doors (pain in the ass to get rid of the "glaze look" on the leather).

I plan on purchasing the Mopar Cold Air Intake within the next couple weeks. I have the V6, so it could use a little bit more power.

Any recommendations on some good modifications?

Don't use a chrome cleaner on the Summit wheels as those wheels are not chrome.

edit: pm sent to sternsrt8 basically saying the Summit wheels are Aluminum twin five-spoke, Satin Chrome finish. http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_wheels.htm
and to use soap and water or ask for more opinions for detailing tips.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (New Owner)

What are the wheels on the summit exactly? Do you recommend only using soap and water?

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (New Owner)

2014 Summit wheels are polished aluminum, not chrome. I have had mine about a year and just wax them with the same wax as used on the rest of the Jeep. I just save a can that is almost finished just for that purpose.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (New Owner)

Congrats! Summit wheels are polished aluminum but they are clear coated just use your car soap and water or if that didn't work, use dedicated wheel cleaners (non-acidic) or any good APC (clear coat-safe ones like OPC).. protecting them with a good sealant or coating makes it much easier to clean, I coated mine with Opti-Coat

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit (New Owner)

Thanks for all the information. I will stick with soap and water.
