-Dawn Wash
-Zaino Z18 Clay with Dawn Wash as lube
-P21s Wheel Cleaner for wheels
-TOL Tire Cleaner cut 50/50 for tires/wells

-Hi-Temp Extreme Cut/Optimum Car Polish via rotary and LC Cutting Pad @ 1700 rpm for light scratches (spot buff)
-Zaino ZPC via rotary and Meguiar's Polishing Pad @ 1200 rpm (x 2 on hood)
-Zaino Z6 wipedown

-Zaino Z2 Pro by hand on paint, wheels, glass
-Zaino Z16 on tires/wells
-Zaino Z8 final wipedown

Engine was cleaned with TOL Tire Cleaner cut 50/50 and dressed with CD-2 Engine Detailer

Looks great! I don't know why people like dirty. Dirty is really bad for your vehicle. Soon as I get done wheeling, I start the cleaning process that takes days. I still haven't got all the dirt from ECXC off it. Be surprised where mud gets and what it will do. They just recently had a news release about what not cleaning your vehicle can do. Who was it GM? I'll get her dirty, but I don't mind cleaning it up either. Nice recipe!

Problem is when your X sees dirt at least one day a week, who has that kind of time to clean it. I let the clean creek crossings and acid rain clean mine. I do however hose out the radiator and plan to buy some of those Staun Chassis Spa's for cleaning out the important parts. Nothing like being able to plug your X into the hose to clean those hard to reach spaces. :)

That looks nice man! That's cleaner than mine was when I picked it up from the dealer.

Has anyone tried taking out the radiator to give it a nice cleaning?

Since I need to do a coolant flush I'll be pulling it out and not only cleaning but seeing if I can dinf a better way of mounting it so that the A/C coil is not so close. I would love to be able to put valves and QD's on the rad line so I can pull it out after every run.

Nothing wrong with getting a clean X dirty. But when you have a great was on the truck, the dirt and road grime sure washes off with ease!!!

I enjoy cleaning my truck, it is like a hobby to me. I feel good driving it when it looks clean and sharp, and people notice the truck.

I also feel just as good driving down the street with mud up to the roof and damn dirty tires. And just as many people look!!!!

What a great life!!! :cheers:
