Truck looks great! As stated above, I'd continue to wax that truck! I also use the same products as you and have had great results.

Wellllll....I wonder how many times the guy I bought it from waxed it! He did take good care of the truck and since I have no records......you win lol.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys! For any that didnt notice my bumper got raised earlier this week :-) No more dangling 3 inches!

next time you should try a clay bar on it. it will give it a deeper shine and will be smooth to the touch
