Red Jeeps Are Expensive!

Never had another color vehicle that showed so much dirt and grime than my current red 97 TJ. My gal has taken it to the carwash (both drive through and hand spray) at least a half dozen times in the two weeks we have owned it. Can only imagine what the black jeeps are like. I've owned white, yellow, blue, and green jeeps and none were like this. Personally I'd wait until after we go trial riding to wash it but she likes the jeep clean. As long as it comes out of her pocket all is good.

Owned exactly ONE brand new black vehicle in my life, a 1990 Nissan 4x4 pickup.

First and last time I'll ever own a black vehicle, period.

Love my bright vibrant jeep colors, but there is something to be said for metallic grey in the 'does it look clean' world...

I feel the same way about the yellow jeeps (had three of them). You really have to try and make them look dirty. But this red sure is a good looking jeep and gets a lot of comments.

What color red?? New Hybrid ceramic coatings do a good job of sheding dirt and grime thus extending your time between detailing.
