    There's a lot of pro-level stuff out there that works wonderfully, but seriously, unless you are wanting to maintain a show-quality finish, these two are going to keep your truck looking good and protect the paint.

    I use griots for the interior cleaner, wheel cleaner, and rubber cleaner. I also own the bucket like in the link. The buckets are great, especially with the casters.

    Other items from Griots I use are the cleaning brushes and wheel MIT. I have tried their wax, but not a big fan of it.

    I currently use Mothers California Gold waxes and absolutely love them. Easy to put on and easy to take off. The Texas heat has not been an issue with it either. I have had problems with other waxes that even though the vehicle is "cool" and in the shade, the temperatures still play into the the wax.

    Just started using Adams products (Super VRT for the win!). I have been thinking about trying out the waxes/polishes, but need to run out of my current stash.

    I use meguiars clay bar than zymol cleaner wax than jax wax to top it off! Shines better than new. For the inside I use meguiars super shine. Than for windows ill use invisible glass.

    For waxes I've used about everything on the market. I really like that jax wax it's pure carnauba goes on super easy and comes off really easy lasts for a while.

    I've only started waxing recently, but I like the Turtle wax I have; It leaves a nice clean shine.

    Turtle wax ice nothing stick's to it bugs wipe right off. Doesn't turn plastic gray/white.
    Paste works best, and use Turtle wax Syn detail spray in between waxes.

    Blackfire wet diamond. IMO, hands down the best product I have ever used. I use to use zaino, but this stuff is so much easier and better. Take a look at my black 5.0 I just traded in for my Tacoma.
