I like! Maybe not for the jeep so much, but for some of the other toys. Anyone got the part number on it?

I'm sure you look dumb in any vehicle. The only universal statement anyone should be making

i'm not sure, i find anything any everything sticks to the rear window of the jeep and i have to almost buff it out each time. Point is, it's not like paint over-spray that can't be removed, just has to be rubbed off. on the wheels it's easy to rub off on the back window, not so much. I figured it out too late, but easy to avoid this by simply raising the back window when you spray it

If you need a good cleaner for matte wheels Chemical Guys Meticoulous black works awesome.

I tried this on mine and it was damn near impossible to remove from the chrome clad wheels I have, just a forewarning it may not work as well for everyone. I have personally always loved shined tires

UPDATE: Does NOT hold up well. This stuff looks great for the first week, but the claims that it "lasts for months" and through numerous car washes is BS. Even better, they claim on the packaging that the shines gets BETTER with time. All lies. After the first rainfall the shine starts to dull A LOT. Eventually (in a matter of days) it dulls completely and makes the tire seem weird.

ALSO, it's impossible to not get the over-sprary from this stuff over EVERYTHING...especially the wheels. A complete nightmare to remove the over-spray from the wheels, it dries like a pasty glue that literally has to be scrubbed off.

Any benefit from drying "dry" is completely outweighed by all the negatives here. Much better off using traditional tire wet, even if you get a bit of spray when you drive and washing it off, then messing with this stuff that literally will be the biggest pain in the *** to remove the residue.

STAY AWAY!!!!!!!

We can't all own a 1998 Tj lol. One day when I make enough money I will downgrade to one. You don't have to be jealous of everyone else that has a much nicer and more expensive Jeep than you do. Maybe mom and dad might buy you a newer Jeep when you graduate who knows? I'm not sure though that you could even handle a nicer Jeep because you had a 4dr JK that was way more capable than your TJ is and was stock. Why you would ever go two steps back is beyond me if anything if you like the Tj set up you should have opted for a LJ at least since you're such a hardcore offroader and all.

Try the Mothers back to black tire shine it don't sling and it holds the natural look for a long time. I drove in pouring rain for almost four hours and my tires still looked like new off the shelf.
