    I am trying to get some ideas on what you all use when cleaning and detailing your trucks. The more opinions the better. I need to open my eyes, to what others use.

    i use a hose to get the hard stuff off and the crud and thats a good enough wash for me.

    and every few weeks i use GoClean, its a waterless spray you just spray on the vehicle, let it soak a few seconds, spray on your microfiber and wipe away. has a built it wax and everything, gets my job done. my trucks not a show truck so it doesnt have to be all pretty

    Tree sap, bark, branches, dust, mud and rocks.
    2 years ago.... Turtle wax (wipe on, dry and wipe off stuff always back and fourth no circles). Armour all cleaning wipes for interior.
    Now its wet rag and whatever they put in the pressure washers at the wash I go to.
    Ive used the nu-finish before works great but I found it washes of easily.

    Armour All for the interior, the exterior just depends on the day really, but turtle wax is my favorite.

    Ive never had the problem with just the cleaner. Cant stand the protectant stuff. Ive actually switched to baby wipes, I usually keep them in the truck anyway cause you never know when you gotta go.....and have a picnic where you eat ribs and have to clean your face.:p

    Not that I've noticed. I use the cleaner wipes and have been for years and my interior looks to be in good shape.


    For the outside, I use Mother's soap and Meguiar's products for clay bar, polishing and waxing. I use the Ultimate Compound and NXT sealant or Quik Wax if I'm short on time.
