What: Back to Black heavy-duty trim cleaner

Spray-On Protection
Who: Armor All
What: Custom Shield paint and body protection

No Rinsing Necessary
Who: Adam’s
What: Rinseless Wash
Why: Washing a truck has always involved two things: soapy water and a hose. Adam’s has completely reinvented this old formula by eliminating the need for rinsing with water. Just pour the concentrated cleaner into a bucket of water, use it to wipe down the truck, and towel dry.

Professional Polisher
Who: Porter Cable
What: 7436SP 6-inch random orbital tool

Gentle Car Wash
Who: Griot’s
What: Car wash
Why: Dish soap is for -- you guessed it -- dishes. Using it on your truck removes all wax from the surface and can even damage the paint. Griot’s car wash is designed to be pH balanced and safe for all finishes, so your paint stays glossy longer.
