    What do you guys and gals use on your fender flares after washing the truck? Silver 2020 Off-Road model with black flares.

    303 is the correct answer.

    I just use tire shine at the same time I am doing the tires. Same with the bed cap, and bumper step. It does get very slippery but I never use it to step on so.......

    why do so many guys hate on armor all? I read it so many times on here, is everyone just repeating after one another?

    I have used armor all since i was 16 years old. My plastics have always looked great, never faded and had a nice sheen to it. I use it in my taco and it looks great.

    I never used it on exterior plastics though.

    I think everyone's experience with it is different. Maybe it depends on the car manufacturer and the type of plastic that they use, not sure. I haven't had a good experience with it after i stop using it especially on exterior plastic trim pieces, as well as, with their tire shine.

    I use this on all my cars. Makes dull, scratched black plastic trim look new again. Lasts for two years. It is amazing!

    This. Silk Shine works great. I used it on my 2017 Off Road when I had it and it did a great job of keeping the black flares looking new. Also worked great on tires.

    Yes, it worked great on my wife's car. It had a lot of good reviews when I was researching for something and that's why I got it.
