Your Favorite Wax (Other than Adams)

I am hoping to actually get my truck washed this weekend while we are out camping and was wondering what wax everyone prefers that doesn't use Adams. I currently dont have any of there wax and dont think I can get any by Sat. morning when I leave. SO... what does everyone like and what should I stay away from...

Well, before I switched to Adams, I used Meguiars NXT. Easy on, easy off... Lasts a long time too..... Won a couple of "Show-n-Shine" trophies at the Powerfest Rallies with it on my truck.... Pretty good stuff actually...




But, I have to admit, Adams is better..........

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end

I have to admit I never waxed anything before I was introduced to Adams.

I like Meguire's Paste Wax. It takes a bit of work, but the looks lasts for a long time. I usually clay bar first, followed by cleaner wax, then the paste wax. Chris

I'm a little more country than that...
