    Planning to IronX, Clay and apply Reload to my truck soon. Is the reload itself enough of a shine and protectant? Is anyone topping it off with a wax or anything like beadmaker
    afterwards?

    It's really good at both shine and protection. You don't need anything over the top. You could add beadmaker or a good carnauba wax to add some gloss and slickness. Those products will only last a few weeks so it's all about how often you wanna apply it. Reload will last months.

    Bead Maker will give you stupid gloss and slickness.....I get about 3 weeks out of it on my truck which sits outside 24/7

    Same advice as @Pudge and @briarpatch gave. Beadmaker or a good wax will add some gloss. Beadmaker is probably a better option as it is cheap and easier to apply than wax. It also has unparalleled slickness.

    You could also use your Reload to make a detail spray. That will help keep it looking pretty fresh. Reload has a good bit of gloss on its own. Probably the best all around sealant I’ve used.
