    Did a real nice detail on my wifes 2010 4Runner, I purchased a griots DA. I wanted to clay and wax but realized I couldn't reach tue top even with a small step ladder. So how do you get up there to clay and wax the top?

    I usually just stand on the tire. Or open the doors and stand on the jamb, that is of course after I put a towel down so my dirty feet don't ruin all my other cleaning work. Being 6 foot tall helps too, long arms......

    Door jamb or ladder is your only bet..unless you build a rig you can suspend yourself in mid air over the roof..
