so shiny

Looks nice.
Grab some black rust protecting spray paint and hit those bolts in the front wheel wells (heck the whole thing while you're down there) and it'll make the Jeep look better when people are checking it out

I hate to see a clean body but the undercarriage is crap.
Believe me it's coming. I only have so much time each week...I have a date with the rust

Remove the side molding. It will look nicer than it already is.

For the most part, the paint was in reasonable shape. I started with a clay bar to remove dirt/contaminates. Next was a scratch remover/shine enhancer. Then sealant. Followed by a good quality Carnuba wax. It really brings it back to life

Wow...that was one hell of a compliment you just paid me This is my first Jeep, and I'm really proud to say I own one. I feel like I'm just getting started with the build-up on it. I also have to acknowledge this forum for the inspiration so far. Thanks again

Overall very satisfied with the way it turned out. XJ actually rides better now, than with the old stock suspension. The shakey butt feeling is gone...feels much more tied down. Let me know what you think.
