What have you guys found to hold up for protecting the paint and clearcoat on a 10-15yr old factory paint job? I'm not talking about a nice vehicle that you'd wax every 3-4 months, but more of a work/hunt rig that gets pressure washed once a month or so and gets a real "clean up" maybe once or twice a year. What's something simple to apply that's going to keep it from chalking up too badly on the exterior as the years go by? I'm not interested in doing the whole 5-step clay bar and polish routine on something that drives through the bushes a lot and isn't a daily driver.

The cheapest ceramic cleaner/wax is what I picked up at the farm store. Really beads up the water and hopefully the mud doesn’t stick as bad when it gets pressure washed once a month at most.
I don’t remember the brand but it says cleaner and wax so maybe it takes off some oxidation. It makes a 20 year old tundra still shine.

Nu Finish works extremely well.

We use it on our company vehicles, which meets the criteria you outlined above.

I was considering Nu Finish, as it's been around a while. Appreciate the insight.

It works well enough that I use it on my new Tahoe and a daily driver.

Spray the whole truck with bedliner.

Nu Finish is what I have always used. Apply once a year.
