    whats the best product to protect the black rubber and plastic parts of your truck from the sun? ie rubber around the windows, hood, wheel flares, rear window etc. Armor all, silicone spray?


    Thanks

    best thing to do is google search it and that way you can see who has the best deal on it. alot of marina/boating supply places carry it....and i got mine from cabelas. aint cheap...but worth every penny.

    Thanks! Thats why I ask, before I found this site I'd go retail shopping but people here have found the best deals on about everything having to do with the Tacoma. I think a trip to Cabella's is in order!

    check that post for my recos.

    303 is a nice, versatile product but does not have durability compared to dedicated products like blackagain or blackwow.

    if your truck is new or in great shape and you are not experiencing fading or any weirdness on the trim, start using optimum opti-seal sealant. it's not only my #1 sealant for paint, but is incredible for protecting plastic as well.
