Yeah you will need to wax it down here a LOT. black cars fade fast in the oven of a sun that is July in Tucson

I at least throw some wax on my hood/grille/fenders just about every time I wash it....at the very least every few times.

I use meguiar's cleaner wax. It's so easy to use it makes putting some on after a wash super easy

Hey man! Found your build!
Is it just me or has everything been pretty lame since Moab? I'd rather be there with that group right now than anywhere else...

Cheers

Feeling the same way man, It's been boring ever since I got home as you can clearly tell with the wax and wax!

I wish I could update this more! I've been super busy with school and work. I'm waiting on my tax return to come in, then it's looking like 315s or poison spyder full corners and big daddy aluminum sliders. Still trying to sell the other tj, so I've been tinkering with that one trying to get it running good and looking good.

I'll be taking the gf to Sedona this weekend to map out soldiers pass, broken arrow, and greasy spoon (diamondback gulch) for my final project in a GPS class I'm taking. Should be fun!

Jeep looks good. Nice stance, looks simple, I like it. I think the chrome overlay is perfect on the black. Makes it stand out a bit.

Instead of Sedona, I mapped out Shultz Pass and it's burn area since it opened early. It was a good day!



Also, I found a place in town that'll install 315/75r16 trail diggers for $909 otd. I'll be getting these asap
