    Well I am one of those guys that plans on washing his truck every week. I hear this keeps the bad stuff in the air and from the road from sticking into the paint as it will if left there. I mainly hand wash it with a few times through the spray only pull through wash. I use NXT Generation Tech Wax and the Meguairs Quick Detailer spray in between waxes every other week or so. I got to admit it still looks like I just got it though that was 8 months ago. Well, besides my mods; SockMonkey stickers, debadged of chrome save for the front Toyota Emblem, BHLM and blackened grill. :)

    cool. yeah i use zymol wax as a primer then i take it off and add a second layer of meguires car wax. it keeps it lookin great. i also use the quick mist detailer. but what kind off cloth do you use to remove the wax. i use flannel cloths which work well, but i heard that terry cloths can actually scratch the paint surface

    I just use regular cotton towels that have been washed but no fabric softner or dryer sheets used on them. I'd like to upgrade to some large microfiber cloths/towels one day.

    Toytec ultimate lift kit, light racing UCAs, ARB bumper and full skid plates underneath. Looking into redoing the suspension and maybe repainting the ol' Taco.
    The microfiber towels at Target are awesome. Vroom brand
