Here are the products I use on my 04 Renegade.

Car Wash- Meguiar's Deep Crystal car wash

Carpet Cleaner- Blue Coral - Interior Cleaner with Odor Eliminator
Febreze fabric spray odor cleaner

Windows- Rain X 2-In-1 glass cleaner and rain repellent

Dash & Doors- Armor All Ultra Shine spray protectant

What do you guys use?

What is a good wax to use? I have some Turtle Wax but haven't used it on the Jeep yet. I was thinking about picking up some Meguiar's GOLD CLASS™ LIQUID WAX, but not sure yet.

Meguiars everything in these steps..........wash, clay bar, precleaner wax, polish, then a good waxing. Looks factory new when done and is usually done when the water won't bead any more when I wash it. If I had to guess I usually do that about 10 times a year including winter when it needs more protection. Wash it once a week even if it doesn't need it in the summer, wash it at least twice a week in the winter including a very stringent underbody wash, no matter how cold it is. Prestone stain remover for the carpet and mats when needed, shop vac it once a week. :JEEPIN: Which reminds me I am past due on my cleaning service this week :jester:

Seems Meguiar's is a pretty popular product.

What steps do you guys take (& products do you use) when it comes to waxing?

I used to use Meguiar's but then I got into detailing and started using different stuff. I'm trying to get rid of the Meguiar's stuff actually lol. Surf City Garage is good! I have only tried their car shampoo, but it is a very nice product. Wish they would sell more of it locally.
For waxing, Autoglym HD Wax is really good. Sometimes you can find it cheap at Walmart or Pepboys. I paid 35 bucks when I got mine. It can be kind of a pain to put on though. If you are strictly wanting to use Meguiar's then the Gold Class is good.

I will wash it with dish soap to strip old wax off, then clay bar it with Meguire's clay. Then do scratch removal (Ultimate Compound or Swirl X on spots) then polish with DC2 then use SCG Nano Sealant than Nano Glaze. Takes about 4 hours, but well worth it to me! :D
