Okay, so am I the only one that takes his Jeep but doesn't flat tow it? I have flat towed it before but prefer to pull it in an enclosed trailer. I even towed it in a trailer before I got the DX3.

As someone who has been in the bodyshop business for almost 40 years, I'd like to suggest removing that cover. The paint on your Jeep is basecoat/clearcoat and when it gets rubbed from the cover, it will make the clear coat milky.

You can have it wrapped in a clear bra or buy some static cling paper (we use a product that looks like saran wrap but it's sticky and can be easily removed. (not reused))

Just a suggestion to protect your jeep.

Yah, get rid of that. Pull it without the protective stuff. It's a Jeep!

Mine sits too high to get any rock chips anyway. I donít worry about it, it gets enough on the trails.

Kind of but no shrinking... it's called crash wrap and we use it to protect an interior if a car comes in with windows broken out of it.

Regardless of what she uses to protect the paint, the black bra has to go. The darker the color, the more it'll show.

Yeah, itíll take more than two days. I promise you itíll leave marks in the clearcoat. Iíll bet the 38 years of my bodyshop experience that itíll happen. Dirt will get underneath it and itíll ďgrindĒ the dust and dirt into the paint like a fine polish and leave the clearcoat milky.

Thatís the reason you donít see those kind of bras nowadays and they use a clear bra from companies like 3M.

I wasnít trying to rain on your parade, just offering professional advice.

Hope it works out for you.

Thanks weíre not full timers but this is a 18 with barley 1 k miles on it and with that two tone grill, I talked with folks that have logged 3k with theirs on. We cleaned it up and waxed it before the cover went on and will continue that practice. We had a couple asking about it today. He loved how snuggly it fit

Keeping it waxed will definitely help. Good job!

Having being pulled so close to your motorhome will definitely help with the wind buffeting. Iíve pulled my Ď17 Recon several thousand miles without any protection and itís still pristine, but Iím also about 6Ē higher. I took mine off roading when it only had 1500 miles and almost rolled it!
