Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Detailing

Welcome to Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Detailing...

Jeeps have universal appeal for many reasons; Wranglers have an even greater appeal, to an even greater diverse group of people from all walks of life. From the cult followers, to extreme off-roaders, to extreme rock climbers, to "yuppie" college girls, very few "vehicles" have this kind following and universal appeal! Follow along as we spotlight this particular Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Detailing shoot.

Thank you in advance,

Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with my fellow Jeep enthusiast and long time friend, Doug. Having a long time interest in Jeeps, Dougs' interest also includes cars and Harley motorcycles. He recently purchased this Jeep Rubicon that comes with a healthy dose of the "cool" factor in one of my favorite Jeep colors. Doug is no stranger to Jeeps as he has previous Jeeps and has been an enthusiast for some time now.

I had been anticipating the new arrival up this updated Jeep for some time, as Doug had been keeping me up to speed during our business meetings . Being a huge fan of the Jeep Wranglers, needless to say I was anxious to advise Doug with some helpful pointers of detailing and maintenance, as well as get some time with it for this photo shoot.

Overview

Anyone close enough to know what I do for a living, also knows I am anxious to impart my professional opinion their way. Jeeps present a unique challenge to the "driveway detailer" and professional detailer alike. Because of the numerous body pieces constructed from textured black plastics, waxing and proper paint care presents a variety of challenges. There are waxes that exist today that can be used directly on any black trim pieces that make the chore of waxing so much easier. I showed Doug a few professional tips based on the following:


  • Paint protection based on care and maintenance routine of his Jeep.
  • Paint enhancement based on color.
  • Paint protection and enhancement working with and around the many plastic body trim pieces.
  • Products and techniques that produce maximum results with minimal efforts.

Paint Care

This Jeep Green is one of my favorite colors of paint for Jeeps, but also represents a difficult choice in colors due to its dark color. I generally recommend starting your paint care efforts with a base of some form of polymer sealant. Because of modern advances in chemical engineering, we now have many choices as consumers. Application of a spray wax or detailer after each washing will aid to extend the life of the sealant, as well as add visual enhancement each time.

Wheels

Modern day wheels finished in the OE silver finish are easy to clean and maintain. The smooth silver and clear coated finish is resistant to brake dust and harmful chemicals. Simple cleaners used with some form of manual agitation of a soft brush, is all that is required to keep wheels lasting a life time. The application of a trusted spray wax can also be used for enhanced protection and appearance. These particular wheels don't represent too difficult a time when it comes to cleaning and maintaining due to the larger spokes.

The Dirty Side of Jeep Enthusiasm

Jeeps are no strangers to the roads of California. Despite their off-road prowess, most Jeeps locally never make it off road; unless you consider the accidental curb shot off-roading. Doug and his crew are the exception as the above picture dictates. Dougs' Jeep Rubicon can be seen as the first in this line up of dirty Jeeps in one of many California desert excursions.jeep wrangler rubicon detailing

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Detailing Summary

Thanks to Doug for being a good sport and appearing with his cool Jeep. Despite my efforts, pictures lack the ability to create the emotional response one gets imagining driving along the open road in one of these extreme fun machines; whether this be on or off road!.

I hope you have enjoyed this tour with Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Detailing as much as I have! Do you own a Jeep yourself? The products to the right are this Experts picks for vehicles like Jeeps enhanced with much in the way of difficult black trim pieces!

Non-Staining Paint Protection and Enhancement


Especially problematic if you are working on vehicles such as Jeeps and Hummers that are designed with much in the way of black trim pieces, using the latest in advanced chemical engineering will not only make your life much easier, but deliver superior results! The following products represent alternatives to traditional wax products with non-staining formulations.


Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax

Meguiar's Ultimate Quick Wax is a spray detailer and wax all in one. Use as a stand alone wax after using the clay bar, or to enhance and refresh any wax already on your paints finish. This product is so easy to use and very light in consistency, that I actually use this as a Quik Detailer; this way I am also getting added wax protection and enhancement each time. Recommended for any dark colored cars after washing for added depth and glossing. Ideal for hot climates, as can be used in direct sunlight on hot paint. A great way to further enhance your paint after using your choice of wax product that also serves as a way to collect any residual dusting that may occur after wax removal.

Griot's Garage Micro Fiber Cloths

If you are new to micro fiber, you are in for a big treat! These amazing wonders have completely replaced the ageless staple of baby diapers as the universally accepted tool for wax removal. So versatile, you will find many other uses for them also. I simply reserve a number of these cloths for wax removal only.

Water Sprite Chamois

The exact chamois I have used professionally for over twenty years; still the best! I like this over-sized version that I cut in half; one half is reserved for freshly washed cars, the other half for dirtier jobs like wiping door jambs. Simply hose out with pressure when they get dirty. All the benefits of natural chamois, with none of the drawbacks! An absolute must for every "Driveway Detailer".
