    I'm now living at the beach and the salt is just making my truck look like crap. I plan on using rain-x on the windows to help keep them a bit more clear. My question is what is the best and easiest to apply wax to help protect my paint for the salt and sand that is eating up my truck?

    These three are my favorite spray waxes...you can't get any easier than spray and wipe. Protection lasts 2-3 months. You may find other waxes/sealants that last longer, but it's unlikely that they will apply and remove as easy as any of these. Since you are in Socal, it's never too cold to wax!

    Duragloss Aquawax
    CSI Q-7 Spray Wax

    We sell the CSI Q-7 Wax on our website and it is just $8.50 for a 16-ounce bottle.

    +1 for the Duragloss Aquawax. The instructions advise you to spray on a wet vehicle, then buff dry. I like to apply the spray to an already dry vehicle and then buff off. I use Aquawax after every weekly wash. I also spray it on everything: paint, windows, plastic trim, rims.... I use it everywhere except for the tires. This is a great spray-on, wipe-off product that looks great, adds protection, and is very quick to use ( 6 minutes to do whole truck). To save some money, I purchase it by the gallon.

    I'm a huge fan of Meguiar's #20. It's been around a long time. Its a synthetic polymer and lasts very, very long. Outstanding paint protection, I use this on my daily drivers simply because its great protection, looks great (really, shiny), and very very easy to apply/take off. I do my truck and my girlfriends car once every 6 months, and am very pleased with the results.

    If you want the best wax for protecting your paint, go with Collinite. Hands down, it'll protect best. 845 insulator wax is the liquid version, 476s is the paste version. 476 will be slightly more durable since its in paste form, however, it'll be just a little tougher to remove. Spray waxes wont protect very long. In fact, I'd put them in the lowest category. Paste>Liquid>Spray. Of course, you may get some overlapping of products in there.
