2 things...

1. wax before you go offroading (preferably double wax)
2. wash right after you go, even go to a "pay-and-spray" and at least get the thick stuff off

oh yea, forgot this too...heavy degreaser works for those moldings and stuff. just dilute it about 1:1 and use a towel and just spray it on the towel, you don't even need water....works for me.

Try simple green too

I think this will solve just about everyone's problems here... Tonno Tonic does not harm the vinyl of the cover, nor does it add or inhibit the uv stabilizers within the vinyl. It's a protectant and also gives it a great shine. I know people who had used trim protectants in which it actually start to deteriorate finish. This is specially made and I seriously swear by this...

My jeeps rubber trim looks like crap from mudding. Armor all wipes won't help either. I been looking for stuff for my tonneau cover for awhile now. Where can i get some of this 303 stuff? Mothers back to black is that stuff alot better than armor all. I have them gray fender flares on my ranger and they look like crap if i don't use armor all on them. I keep my vechicals waxed but after mudding my jeep really shows some fine sratches in the paint so i always wax it after mudding to. Is there anyway around this?

Hey guys, I just bought 303 Aerospace for my tonneau cover in which i have done nothing to in the year that I have owned it. I must say it is so easy to apply and my cover looks incredible. I am so happy with the purchase. Anyone contemplating, stop and go buy this stuff. Thanks to everyone for the recommendation.

you should always use something safe for the tonneau cover, like what rudeman posted.
NEVER use armor all, theres a huge tag on my cover that says "DO NOT USE ARMOR ALL ON THIS COVER"
it will make it dry up and shrink, not good.

I know the Aerospace 303 product works well too, but I know that stuff is not cheap, for a 8 ounch bottle (I think), it was something around 6 bucks, VERY NICE!!!

honestly, this is like the only part of the truck that i don't care too much about. i take the brush to it at the car wash or the hose at home. but i don't get picky about it.
