I just hit my Baby with the new Turtle Wax Ice and love it. 90 degree day, full sun, Black truck....NO issues. Smooth as silk. Deep and dark. Hit it quick the next day with the Ice detail spray and it made it even deeper and smoother.

There are a few things you need to consider before you choose what "wax" you want to use. I would suggest you go to autogeek.net and read about the different products that are available and what their differences are. Most of their products are used by professional detailers and the quality of their products are outstanding. Or--you could go to a big box store and buy a "popular brand name" and wax your vehicle. Under this circumstance you can expect your "wax" to last 4-6 weeks. You should decide whether a sealant is better for your circumstances than a wax. A sealant will last app. 6 months. Do you leave your truck outside all the time or do you park in a garage? What are the weather conditions where you live. Do you use a car wash or do you wash your truck by hand?----on and on and on------. Everyone has their own favorites for wax. I use Zanio sealant(#2) and top it with Collinite 915. Research and knowledge is your friend when you choose your wax.

Thanks Everyone,
Your inputs are very important and I have narrowed it down to meguire's ultimate for now. I tested it on the wife's car first lol... she has a 2004 grand prix gt and that thing goes from "flat white" to "metallic white". Hopefully it will look the same on my Ram... preferably better.
I will post pictures after a good hand wash.
