    well it does the job, but you do have to wash the truck to take it off. Instead of just rinsing it.

    I tried the ICE.

    Needed more elbow grease to get it smooth.

    I found the original clay bar with the lube spray to still be the best way to go.

    I'm afraid all the extra rubbing with the ICE may make my truck bond to me, then have separation anxiety when I park her.

    so i need to use clay bar even tho i wax using maguires?
    what does it do that is better/different then a normal wax and polish.

    the website for the clay bar pretty much says its for scratches and the like.
    right/wrong?

    using a clay bar actually removes any contaminants in the paint. so in detailing, after washing...this is a first step. then next you polish...gets rid of small scratches and such and shines the paint, and then you wax....which is a protectant for the paint, and it locks in the shine.

    The correct process is:

    wash
    clay bar
    wash
    dry
    polish (if needed)
    sealer (if needed)
    wax
