I'm sure you'll get as many opinions about this subject as members on this forum. For what it's worth, I've used this product on my last seven vehicles, and without going into a long song and dance, I think it's great. The only other thing I do is run my vehicles through a carwash when they get dirty. After 6 or 7 years my vehicles still look like new, and I live in a snowbelt region with well salted roads in the winter. http://www.tst5k.com/tst_5000.html

Really Mopar Paint Sealant

Never heard of it.

Dont waste your money. Paint needs to breath. This is all dealer profit. Find another dealer because the one you are dealing with is a rip off.

I would ask for something in writing from Jeep that the dealer applied paint sealant doesnt void the warranty.

Depends on what they are trying to sell. Are they trying to sell you an $800 paint protection package, or a $20 bottle of Mopar sealant? If the latter, sure - use it. DIY. Your paint does need protection, and in general, sealants last longer than waxes. There of course are a few exceptions to this rule.

Well, I'm sure if you never heard of it, it must be a rip-off. I guess I must be hallucinating. My vehicles are probably rusting apart and I can't even see it.

By the way, I don't really know why I read your post, I've had you on ignore for some time now. Most of your posts seem to be the rants of a pretentious a**.

Depends on how the warranty works. With my GM products, I often purchased Auto Butler paint sealant. But only because you have to bring it in every 6 months for inspection, at which time they reapply - clean and detail the entire vehicle exterior. For the $300 price (exterior only), it was like getting a bargain detail 2X per year. I usually scheduled my visits in the spring (to clean off the winter crap) and fall (prepare for winter).

Now, if it is just a 1X application at new - I would never spend the money.
