    I’ve tried several products to shine my black nerf bars up, but none of them seem to last more than a day or two. Anyone had luck with anything?

    I use nothing on my black rock steps other than hand wash with warm soap water and rinse. They stay pretty much dirty all the time.

    It’s usually just me in the truck, so 3/4 of mine stay clean.

    Haha... I've never shined mine up. Black matte powder coat. Maybe there is some kind of detail wax that will work but I have no clue...:oops:

    Bright pink truck nuts.
    I occasionally hit protesters who block roadways. The friction from those impacts keep mine nice n sparkly

    The only stuff I’ve seen that stayed on a while was too slick. As funny as it was when my wife busted her ass getting out of the truck, I can’t afford many more pins and plates for her bones.

    I'm guessing u r talking about the black plastic pads on the nerf bar.....I've yet to find a product that does not make them slippery to some extent. There's a possibility that something like Solution Finish might not, since it's a dye, bit that's too expensive of an experiment for me.
