Washed it with CG Citrus wash, then Nanoskinned the paint, then used some Poorboy's SSR 2.5 on a few scratches and then finished it off with Duragloss 601/111 mixed at 1:4.

Good looking XJ. I'd have to change those wheels, never cared for them, Jeep OEM Canyons look good on XJs.

I think that's the only Poorboy's stuff I've ever used...I'm not really loyal to any brand besides Duragloss for sealants and Aquawax.

And thanks. I'm not real crazy about the wheels and they could use a refinish. I like the wheels that Jeep used after and the ones Jeep used before, but it would bother me that they're not original.

Looks great! You've taken good care of it.

Mine is in pretty good shape too, the white paint has a couple spots where it's starting to peel. It's also done a lot of desert driving so deep down it's got some AZ pinstriping. It has been waxed 1time in it's entire life about 5 years ago.

Here's the most recent picture I have of it after a wash

Looks good! Gotta love these Jeeps. I have just about the same amount of mileage on mine as you do yours (at 136k now).

Yeah I love driving it, I replaced the seats with ZJ seats, they bolt right up to the seat frames. Much more comfortable now. I'm going to modify the seat frame though so it can go back about 2 more inches, I'm too tall for it, my knees are pretty close to the dash.

Mine was owned by the state of Arizona from new until April 2007 at 100k miles, my grandpa bought it at a state auction. It used to have a small siren on the roof.. It's an extreme base model, manual everything, doesn't even have rear speakers. Didn't have a center console but I put one in.

I'd love to do the seat frame thing to mine. What does that involve?

There's the 5 spoke XJ, YJ rim (Jurrasic Park Wrangler rim) and the 10 spoke found on the the older AMC stuff. Both would look sharp on your Jeep. My father has the 10 spokes on his red MJ.

Good looking Jeep though. I've liked these as long as I can remember. Heck, the MJ used to be my mom's back in the day.
