Looks great! I need to wax ours too, but with only 36 days to us leaving our S&B home, not sure I'll have the time. Wife wants me to hire this job out. What have others paid for a full wash & wax?

There is a guy in a campground I stay at in Va that does mine for $300.00 wash and wax. The front and rear caps are hand/paste, and the sides are spray wax.

I used Paul Newmans Dazzling Detailing down in Florida last year, paid $800.00 for wash and 4 step waz and buff... it never looked so good..

It all depends on where you're at & what you're willing to pay. On average I've paid $300+ for wash/hand wax, but in Yuma a couple years ago I had it done for $125. In the future I'd pay the $125 again, but if it's $300 I'd do it myself if park would allow it (most do not allow washing of any vehicles).

Thanks for the input on wash/wax cost. I think my limit might be $300-350 right now, but that could change upward as I get more desperate before we hit the highway. One detailer I looked up online quoted a price of $13 per foot....$533 ! In SoCal, everything costs more, but on the other hand, my modest home will go for more than a half-Mil.

Shane,
I'm in the San Fernando Valley. It may be worth spending a night or two at Orangeland to have that done at that price. I know you spend a lot of time there...do you think they give you a break due to your long terms there?

Ken
It is a set price per ft. I can't remember what it is was either 220 or 250 for mine
Call Orangeland and they would be able to help

Lorenz, run your rig through a CAT scale and see what your axle weights are. There isn't any reason to run 125 psi in the 17.5" tires unless you need to.
Based on what my weights are, I would be fine at 110, I run 115 psi

Made a little fix to mine. Extended my emergency brake line. It was too short and twice when I had to make a hard right turn it got pulled out. Had to quickly get out and reconnect it. Added about 2 feet to it. Should do the trick. Now I need to wax it.
