    Haven't but prob should. Mine looks terrible. Don't use the turtle wax stuff, forget the exact name, it runs down the sides of your bed and looks terrible after a good rain.

    303 is great stuff. I use it on my dash and interior prices. Also any plastic that sees a lot of direct sun like the bed rail caps. It’s actually a real good detail spray too. I’ve replaced using armor all with it.

    Not familiar with that specific 303, but this 303 aerospace protectant is pretty popular here and amongst detailers. I use it myself and use it for almost everything.

    Same here. I've been using the 303 Aerospace protectant for years. The only thing that gets Armor All now are my tires.

    I used 303 on my convertible. For a truck? Nope.
    Plus, why would I want to make my bed and maxtrax even more slippery?

    Didn't even notice he said maxtrax. I don't see why you need to UV protect them. Plastic lining on my truck I do so they don't fade in hot sunny days. I would not suggest using them on floor liners eithers

    Just got truck 12-8-17, Ordered-BAKFLIP MX4 bed cover,IONIC 5" stainless BLACK nerf bar step, that's it so far.
    303 is very good, you have to follow directions, it does not dry by itself you have to wipe until dry. Plastic, rubber etc. absorbs what it needs and you wipe the rest off. Not slippery if done right.....my son-in law did his 05 Taco and looked almost like new.

    I use 303 in the interior and under the hood. Good stuff. I tried using it on exterior trim but it makes runs when wet.

    I've done plenty of applications on my vert. I understand you wipe it dry. But it still leaves behind a film. No, it's not like spraying it down with Pam. But it's more slippery than without. Either way, I don't see the point. It's a truck bed.

    I've been using 303 protectant since i got my Taco.. Great stuff! Use it on pretty much anything plastic inside and out. I even apply it on on Gatortrax MX tonnaeu cover and I'm never disappointed by this stuff!
