This thread is soley to explain proper and helpful ways to wax. If you want to add a video, make it a video you, or another RF member made, no outside stuff. If you know some great tips/tricks, make a vid and post it up here, or explain your processes to help out members thinking of waxing!
If you have another product that you like, that's not on the list. Post it up and I'll add it.

Wax and Sealant products are like ice cream and beer---everyone has their favorite and they all swear that their's is the best, cheapest, looks the best and almost goes on and off by itself. I prefer using professional detailer products which tend to be a little more expensive initally however over time they are really cheaper because you use a lot less product when you apply them. These products seem to last longer , do a better job and in most cases, they are time tested by professional detailers. Two of my favorites are Wolfgang 3.0 Sealant and Collinite 845 wax. IMHO they are two of the better products on the market. I have had great success with them both and would recommend them to others. I don't think you can buy them at a big box store or a parts store however you can get them at --autogeek.net.
I'm not trying to start a piss'n match here--as I said everyone has their own favorite and as long as your satisfied with your results thats all that counts.

IMHO---A good wax will last about 60 days before you need to re-wax your truck to continue the protection to the surface. A good sealant will last about 6 months. Once again IMHO, if you only wax your truck about once every 6 months I think you would be better off using a good sealant, which will give you longer protection in between applications. You can always top the sealant with a good wax and it might last a little longer depending on the weather conditions, how often you wash your truck and whether you park inside or outside. Using a spray detailer after every wash will also keep your trucking looking really good in between waxing/sealing.

I've been using Colonite insulator wax
Its great if you keep up with it
I also like chemical guys jetseal 109 for sealing

I tried out some lucas oil detailing products, their spray on wax/quick detailer is pretty nice. Its pretty wet so having an extra microfiber helps prevent streaking
