    I’ve only used rainx in the past. It worked well until it didn’t. Seems like I had to apply a few times through the rainy season to keep it looking like I was in warp speed. 6ED0C048-12AB-4737-BAC1-1870680C8582.gif

    Clean windshield.
    Apply in small circle motion
    Go over again

    Leave for a few minutes
    Sprinkle water on glass, buff with lint free cloth.

    Basic application i think.

    Should last a few months unless u use wipers alot, or wash the truck alot.

    Driving to oregon a few yrs ago, thats how my windows looked man. I was doing about 20 behind a line of rigs up sisskiyou peak hearing southbound traffic sliding and hopping with chains.

    The snow falling in a headwind made it look like i was doing 100mph. I almost threw up

    Man I was having a hard time the snow would pile up between the wipers and the front window frame every 10 min I had to stop get out and clean it off. My head lights would start going out because the snow was melting when it hit but freezing on itself. I was going from one snow bank to the other zigzagging down the road. I could see shit. Took me over 4 hrs to go 50 miles.

    Dont use on plastic. Using it to keep bugs and grime off your headlights is a bad idea i heard.

    Craziest thing is about half way headlights showed up behind me and it was a family in a mini van following my tracks. I don’t know if they would have made it without me plowing the path.
