I have tried them all, and one of the best that I have used is 3M Cleaner Wax (Black bottle, blue label). It gives a great shine and is very durable (my Jeep is dark green). Give it a shot.

I never use a "paint sealer." The paint needs to breathe.

If you are concerned about the appearence and protection of your vehicle you will find nothing better than Zaino. I have used many quality products and I was hard to convince, but when you use Zaino it converts you to a zealot immediately. The various detailing products from this company are amazing and they are very reasonably priced but you can only get it online. Try Zaino you will not be sorry!

The turtle wax color match with chip stick works wonders on my wife's van. I'm going to get some for the Jeep (Blue). It hides scratches very well and gives a good shine. After reading a few posts, I am tempted to try the Zaino stuff though.

try weathshield by carbrite. www.carbrite.com

this is what all the dealers around here uses. it lasts bout 3 times longer than wax. applies like a lotion and easy to get off by hand. revive works excelent on the faded fender flares. wont wash off of flares right away, its a solevent base. on the weather shield its a wax/paint selant. it'll bead up so good your rig will be dry when its raining. there cherry bomb soap is what i use and a little bit goes a long way. smell like cherrys and itll shine like you wouldnt believe. and it dont eat the wax or sealent. car washes use chemicals in there soaps and they actually eat the wax or sealent off. that why waxes dont last as long as they should. car wash=bad, hand wash with cherry bomb= this guys delivers to us every 2 weeks. ive only boughten a few things in the last year but he still stops by and see if we need any thing. good company and there customer service is great, they said the revive has a uv blocker in it for the flares, and it keeps the moisture in the plastic/rubber, with out the moisture they fade and look blotchy. anyway thats my $.02 try it you'll like it. -chris

A thin layer of mud protects paint and softens skin.

I tried Meguire's NXT wax on my Harleys and was very impressed. It has a money back guarantee.

Finish First.

I use alot of their products. Best window cleaner I've ever used too.

I'm always thinking my windows are down, but they're just that clean. The stuff is awesome.

It's not the cheapest stuff, but it's worth it to me.

I use natural Manzanita preservatives on my Jeep's paint and it works superbly. You'll find it on many offroad trails.

But is it mild?

Oh yes, your Jeep is soaking in it

How much of a PITA is the Zaino to apply?? I read the info on their website and it looks like I'd need the whole weekend to get it done. Something has to be easier
