    For your situation I would recommend Duragloss Aquawax. It's technically a spray sealant and it lasts a few months. It's good enough to work with and cheap enough that you can use it with every wash. Similar spray sealants from Meguairs are also a good option and can be found at Wal-Mart.

    Unfortunately there is no spray on wipe off polish that I know of, you'll have to use a polisher if you want to truly polish your truck.

    The new Turtle Wax "Seal and Shine" has been getting some great reviews on the detailer sites. It looks really promising however the longevity hasn't been determined. I really like the price point.

    if it matters, I saw a review on it where the guy did a three way comparison to two other products. He used an iron remover, and a high-Ph detergent and both times, the other products seemed to come off and the water stopped beading...but the TW stuff held up to it.

    Again, not promoting the stuff...I'm a hard core Meguires fan....But TW is starting to impress.

    I like Griot's Garage Spray-On Wax. Like others have said, a longer-lasting product will be your friend, but for 2-3 weeks of beading and protection, the GG SOW works well and gives a nice shine.

    I too have shoulder issues (no surgery yet though!) so I can wholeheartedly recommend a dual-action random orbital buffer (DAROB). I have the Griot's Garage 6" model, and I waxed my RAM in about 20 minutes with it. I applied Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax, which is good for about 6 months for me. Buffed off easy, but you can also use a buffing pad for the DAROB.

    Good luck!

    We also have a sponsor on the site, Adams.
    Might give them a try, they have a lot of great waxes.

    Our Ceramic Spray couldn't be any easier to apply and remove plus you will get great shine and protection!

    If you live in or near a large city, just have a mobile detail company or a detail shop do it. I have mine done twice a year with polymer sealant. What ever you do, don't let a car wash place do it.
    I use to love waxing my vehicles... not so much as I've gotten older.

    I’ve been using Meguiar Fast Finish, seems to last a pretty long time. It last most of a NY winter, still beading. Reapplies about 2 months ago and still beading now. Not the highest shine but very good. I did top it with Meguiar Ultimate Wax and that brought up a nice shine.

    This picture was just taken 530am on a cloudy morning. Has not been washed or waxed in close to 2 months.

    Before my ceramic coat, all I used was Jax Wax. Check them out online. Amazing products.
