Horrible scratches & marks
 
I just got finished hitting the trails and now I have marks and scratches from overgrown branches. Would a good wash and wax solve the problem? They haven't gone past the clear coat. Or should I invest in a scratch remover?

Thanks

Depends. On my g/f we took out and had scratches all along the sides. Needless to say she wasn't happy. Had it waxed and buffed, and got almost all of them out.

Even a good cleaner wax like Mother's should fill most scratches.

Take it to a detail shop if you don't have a high speed buffer. They will almost all come out and you will be one happy Jeep owner!

Hey welcome to the trail!!! Fun stuff.

Wax won't do nearly enough.

Get thisfrom your local auto store. Stuff works wonders. You can either apply it by hand or by buffer if you feel confident in your ability to not overdo it. Honestly, some good elbow grease will more than likely take care of most of the scuffs and scratches.

Good luck.

You'd be surprised what a good cleaner wax like mothers will do. It has lots of fillers. I just did my whole truck with it.

Alright thanks guys!

The 3m 39002 compound works quite well. Can be applied by hand or with a polisher.

Wear those pinstripes with pride! :cheers2:

Get used to them and learn to appreciate them if you plan to off road often!
:highfive:

Short of using rubbing compound on the clear coat you will always have them.
