    Question Jeep Wrangler Exterior Trim Advice?

    My sister-in-law recently bought a 2016 Jeep Wrangler, and asked me what trim protection and she should use on it. Now I've heard Jeep trim can be PIA to dress & maintain. For those who have or have detailed Wranglers, what's your go to trim dressing? Or should I skip over dressings completely and offer to coat the trim for her instead? Thanks in advance!

    IMO I would use WGETS. There are some new trim coatings out, but i can attest this lasts MONTHS on the xterra. And it has tons of trim!

    Thanks, fellas. Keep in mind my question is for Jeep Wrangler trim in particular. Not trim in general.

    For "new" black exterior trim...trim that's not
    in the need of any restoration...I like using
    non-staining Spray Waxes.

    Spray Waxes like Optimum Car Wax;
    and Meguiar's Ultimate Wax.

    I would go with CQuartz DLux. Coat it and you, or she, won't have to maintain it like you would with dressings. Long lasting and it can stand up to the sun's heat month after month, especially on the top of the Jeep's fenders and bumpers.

    I don't have the WG ext. trim sealant, but have heard great things about it.

    Yeah, I'm leaning towards recommending WETS to her. I've used it and love it. Just wanted to see what the collective wisdom prescribed first. Thanks again everyone!

    Paging Monica......

    I believe many of the jeep people have had success with Penetrol from reading what Detail Kitty has written.
