    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good glass cleaner that I can get at a retail / big-box store? (Wal Mart, Advance Auto, Auto Zone, Etc)

    Just washed my truck for the first time today, and even though I dried it, I still have spots all over my windows. I'm not a fan of Windex... It seems to leave streaks.

    Thanks!

    For exterior I use Sprayway glass cleaner. It's what we use in the house and works well on the exterior windows of the truck. I also use rainX for the exterior part of the windshield. (Note) you could use this for interior as well even if your windows are tinted since it's ammonia free.

    For the interior portion of the windows & windshield I use Adam's glass cleaner.

    Plus wipers last longer and you don't have to run them as much. Water just sheets right off.

    Okay - the Adams video just sold me. I'm going to order their glass kit (cleaner, sealer, applicator, and towels). Thanks so much for the suggestions.

    They make incredible products. Their products are pretty much the only ones I use on my vehicles. They always have discount codes which is great. They just had one for Memorial day that you may have just missed out on.

    Also when washing their towels I tend to avoid using fabric softener. (Just to be safe).

    I also wax the exterior windows every now and then. No streaks. Sprayway works more efficiently than windex and newspapers, but remember to always use a clean dry towel to wipe. 170,080 miles and still shines.

    Wow. If you told me your truck was a 2013 with 40K miles, I would absolutely believe you. Nice job on keeping it looking good as new.

    I try to keep it clean and a good coat of wax. I need to make sure the texas heat does not affect the paint on the truck. Wife gets mad when I tell her I'm going to clean the truck (quotes: "not again") . I don't mind, its my mental relaxation time, when I do. I have my music, my beer, and my dog who doesn't say anything, but gets me a beer when I ask,
