Just wanted to see what others do with and use antisieze on. Specifically what kind you use. Where (or maybe where not) on your Jeep. I generally use it 99% of the time on anything that doesn’t need thread locker (loc tite) or pipe threads. 
I use the copper mostly because I bought a giant jar 10 years ago but I have used the silver colored and a product called Tef Gel (mostly stainless). Does anyone know the differences or if they have specific uses? Yea or nay on lug nuts? Electrical? What are you doing with it?

X2 on what Terry said.

I also use it on exhaust flange fasteners, and exhaust manifold nuts, but I am probably suffering from OCD.

I used it pretty much everywhere. Although more seems to end up on my hands or pants for some reason LOL

One thing I always do is smear some on the back of an aluminum wheel, where it contacts a steel hub. Prevents them from welding themselves together.

I put a smidgeon on the contact surfaces of hubs before putting brake drums on for the same reason, especially the centering ridge if it exists...just enough to make it a fair fight later LOL

I use it on just about any external bolt/nut including lug nuts, excluding some fasteners on the engine (head bolts etc.).  If you don't look like the silver surfer when your done you didn't use enough.

35 years in heavy equipment repair, use it on everything exposed to the elements.... I prefer the copper colored, the silver seems to dry out in a short order.

Silver stuff here, and yeah basically everything plus stuff I probably shouldn’t be putting it on. But definitely the adjustment cams for the brakes, makes shoe adjustment so much easier.

I too use the copper colored where I want corrosion protection from the environment for later disassembly... including open lug nuts. I know there are two different camps of concerns about that but over the last 40 years I've never had a wheel come loose. I do not use 'antiseize' on electrical connections. I use dielectric grease for that application.

Silver stuff on just about everything that doesn't get LocTite, especially the backs and IDs of aluminum wheels and including lug nuts.  Although I've never used it on spark plugs (I've also never worked on an engine with an aluminum head...)

I use the silver stuff, but I've never tried the copper.  I might have to do that.

Nothing special has a great point about the aluminum wheels, that is a must especially if they are hub centric which most are.  I always put it on spark plugs no matter the head material and have done so on customers cars for a very long time.  I also put it on all wheel studs/bolts and have never had a problem or known anyone who has.  I don't really think there is much difference in the copper or silver, I personally always use the permatex advanced formula anti seize.

I use the silver Permatex and a copper colored one made for high temp applications.
One particular place I like to use it is on the nuts for the brake s-tubes. I get the nut just started in the wheel cylinder and hose, then using a toothpick carefully apply a small dab of the stuff on the threads then tighten the fitting.
  
Wither I didn't tighten them properly, or it was due to the antiseize, the only time I have experienced loosening of lug nuts was after an application of antiseize on all the studs. Just saying.

I use the silver pematex on most anything exposed with a few exemptions like lawn mower blade nuts or brush hog blade retainers. Those applications with teach you how hard it is to remove from a place it should not be.

After breaking off most of the studs on the manifold, I used copper antisieze on the outside of the studs (and use copper nuts - probably overkill) on the block and antisieze on both sides of the manifold to exhaust pipe stud.  Time will tell if these were helpful or not.

After purchasing wire nuts for outside use and finding they were packed with dielectric grease, I've been putting that on all my connections, e.g. packing the connections in the original tail lights and water displacement on trailer connections.

I like the idea of antisieze on the brake adjusters.

I use Permatex 80078 (silver) for aluminum and stainless, Bestolife Copper Joint for the high stress/high heat applications.  That latter product is from the drilling industry and used there to make sure you can get the box and pins apart on your drill rod.  In a former life, I put a lot of research/monitoring wells in the ground and a bucket of that stuff is a lifetime supply for other uses.
