I wax mine when the season changes. So every Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.

I just throw some dish soap on mine before a good rain. It's free (except for the dish soap I guess) and I've never had any paint problems. Waxing is for girls with hairy legs.

Nano mitts are pretty awesome anymore if you don’t want to go the clay bar route. I have been using them now for 5 years. Haven’t touched clay since. Clay is awesome not these mitts are so easy to use.

I have a 2019 Red Rubicon with 10,000 miles and always garaged. Haven't waxed it yet. When should I?

I take my JLU to the carwash once every two months or so. I get the wash guys to wax it for me too by paying them a little extra at the cash register. I also get the interior leather conditioned as well at the same time.

There are some consumer grade ceramic coatings that are advertising 3-5 year life. I just applied and my initial impressions are good. The cost is more than wax, but the application labor is about half what what a wax application is.

This stuff is pretty good. Easy to apply. It's been six months and water still beads.
