It did much better job, than the product actually designed for it (Mothers Back to Black), which is nothing short of mind boggling and it likely points to some sort of a conspiracy in the car care industry
Is ATF+4 compatible with older bumpers/cladding?

Think I'll try the cheap stuff... ATF+4 is more than $25/quart here.

If ATF works great on cladding, I wonder if used ATF would work just as well? When I change the trans fluid, I could put it in a container and use it for the cladding instead of throwing it away in autozone's recycling tank. Any thoughts?

Try it on a corner of the cladding or maybe inside, top part of the rear bumper, do a tester and see what's up lol

It was new (unopened), but sitting in my shed for years...not sure if it matters, but this one was dexron compatible i think...

Youll definitely have issues if you use a non Dextron ATF

Cladding is still holding up very well, been washed and rained on and still like original, I'm tempted thought to buy a couple cans of bedliner spray and spray the bumpers wheel wells and cladding... lol

I tried WD-40 the other day on door handle's, roof rack end's, and side mirrors. Works out pretty well actually. And it's safe on paint.

I'm thinking anything oil based will clean up the plastics pretty well

I'm wondering if any of these methods will eventually change the color of the cladding. For instance, I just dont think I'd like yellow or purple cladding on my red ZJ in 2 years because I coated it with something that ruins it.....slowly. I have a friend who's a chemist...maybe I need to talk to him about this concern.

I finally got some good weather to try it out and I'm amazed how great it worked. It looks like a new Jeep every time I look at it. Thanks
