It varies by market. Try getting a quote from your local detail shop. Range of prices may go from about $150 to $240 or so, depending on what you get done.

Re: Do You Detail?

My Jeep is brand new, but I usually detail my cars myself about once or twice a year or whenever there is a need.

This product you mention: Meguiars Ultimate Liquid Wax, is amazing, used it for the first time several weeks ago. The thin coat of wax it uses is resilient and easy to apply. They give you the applicator and cloth with the wax, nice. Apparently their biggest selling product. Strongly recommend waxing Jeep as soon after purchase as possible. The Jeep new car wax is minimal to non-existant.

I detail my 2014 Summit using drywash n guard products. It is very relaxing and a great sense of pride when completed.

Re: Do You Detail?

I'm a big fan of Optimum No Rinse. I've used it for years on exteriors and interiors. It smells great, acts as a protectant, and makes cleaning a vehicle in freezing temps a little easier. Attention to detail is key... get all those nooks and crannies... door jambs...inside the fuel door... trim. All of it.

You use it in a traditional wash bucket but most of the time I dilute it in a spray bottle. Sticking my hands in water in cold temps never really seems that fun.

I also use it around the house. It's good stuff on mirrors and glass because it doesn't spot or streak. I used it on electronics and tv/computer/tablet screens and even blinds.

Re: Do You Detail?

I'm getting my truck sealed with opticoat pro by Joe at Get It Detailed Long Island Detailing. It will come close to ~$2k but he's doing the entire outside, windows, door jams, interior trims, seats, engine bay and exhaust. Literally the entire Jeep...

It sounds like a lot but the opticoat will protect the paint and require much less costs down the road when it comes to washing and waxing. I think of it as an investment more than just an expense.

I used to love detailing my cars but that's also only during the summer months to relax. I don't see myself going crazy with the Jeep after having the opticoat... Just a few washes and a new pressure washer system

Re: Do You Detail?

I love how easy and fun it is to clean a coated or sealed with good LSP car ..
This is how I washed my Jeep yesterday, no buckets/mitts:
- Foam with Chemical Guys Honeydew soap in MTM foam cannon and let it dwell for 5 minutes.
- Rinse with PW.
- Blow dry water out of all nooks & crannies.
- Dry with Ultima Waterless Wash + and MF towels.

Tires (they are new) were cleaned using APC and soft brush before the foam wash and coated with Tuf Shine after drying everything..

Re: Do You Detail?

Do my truck myself. I use Eagle one gel wax for the outside for a good base coat. Doesn't turn any of the black trim white. I bought this waterless wash and wax for between waxes. Use leather perserver on all the leather ( plus dashboard) and use a low gloss interior cleaner for the panels. It's a lot of work because it's black on black but if I keep up on it cleans up quick.

Re: Do You Detail?

Detailed my [wife's] new Overland last weekend and this weekend. Gave her a full clay rub-down followed by a regimen of various Zaino products. I then installed rock rails and Duratracs on Mopar off-road wheels and immediately took it out to get a little muddy
