I usually use Maguire's wax. When it comes time to waxing my vehicles, I always clay bar them after washing and then I will wax them after doing the clay bar. The finish is amazing when does this way. Plus the clay bars help pull all the hidden dirt and grime out of the paint so you are not sealing it in with the wax.

I will use the McGuire's 3-step wax process when there are scratches or swirls. Wash, cleaner, polish, then carnuba wax. Otherwise, I skip right to the carnuba.

Your truck looks great. I like that sun gleam on the front corner 8-) . I think I've tried about everything out there but keep comming back to Mothers,, http://www.mothers.com/02_products/05550-05750.html. I clay bar once or twice a year, but usually just use Dawn dish soap before I wax. Really puts a squeaky clean on. ;)

I plan on picking up more Zano when it is time to wax the Terrain and Sierra. The Terrain is going to be the big job being Onyx Black.
