Okay everybody has their own trick to make their truck have that "look" when they wash it. for instance mine is wd40 under the fenderwells to make it shine. so whats is yours? or whats the product you use to make it have that look

I usually use ICE detailer once its nice and clean, simple green to clean the extra dirty spots, Black WOW for the black molding, fender wells and on the undercover to keep it looking great and easy to clean later on, sprayway window cleaner

Word to the wise on the WD40....Not on plastic my friend, because it contains petrolem distlates it will brown and discolor it over time. Go with a cheap protectant thats water based like STP son of a gun and wipe it down good. Any of your tire shines with petrolem in it also is bad for plastic....read the label to be sure!

Don't ask how I know....

One thing I do, is spray the frame and everything under the truck (Suspension, axel, cross members, etc.) with Armor All. It prevents mud from sticking to it and other crap from sticking to it.

No, which is why I said "Chris4x4" as opposed to Chinese4x4.

When I had my Zr2, I used to spray the underside with cooking spray to make cleanup easier after offroading... It worked, nothing stuck... but who know what kind of negative effects it had...

my secret?...i dont use fancy products when detailing a car inside...i pour 4 oz of degreaser into a spray bottle and the rest water...i then spray the whole dash stereo, steering wheel everything...door handles door panels etc etc and scrub with my brush then i whipe it all off and add a leather dressing which i use on plastic...2 n 1 kinda thing.

wheel wells the same...i spray with the pressure washer, spray degreaser, rinse. let dry and then spray everything with the same dressing i use for the inside orrrrrrr i use the white foam spray people use on tires for the wheel wells.
