wash it once a week, wax monthly use good wax, and try to avoid dusty roads... tires use whatever you like, just use gel type so it wont sling off.

I had to wash my LAST black one every stinkin day to keep it looking great. Never again.

Black vehicles are beautiful when they are clean but they are a nightmare to keep clean. The above tips will help but, keeping it clean gets old in a hurry.

Keep it in the garage under a cover and don't let air circulate around it!

Never wash it with a sponge they trap dirt and little particles that will scratch. Always wash with a 100% American Cotton cloth out of direct sunlight, early morning is best. Use a shammy (I like the Absorber that comes in diff colors) to dry the truck then after its dry go over it end to end with some of Turtle Wax Ice detail spray with only a NEW microfibre cloth. This will eleminate any spots and give it a deep and rich shine.
Now when you get home each day you can detail the whole truck in less than 10 minutes with the Turtle Wax Ice and Microfibre cloth, I do just about everyday. ALSO, with summer here DO NOT LET THE BUGS ON THE FRONT BUMPER TO STAY ON THERE. I bought a power washer or go by a self wash and at least hit the front end to get the bugs off
