IMHO I think claying a new vehicle is time well spent. You are creating the foundation that everything else is going to go on top of and I want to make sure I am starting with a CLEAN surface. My suggestion would be after you clay check for small scratches the clay might have left and if so I'd use a good quality polish to polish them out. Then use a good sealant as a base coat then top it with a good quality wax, such as Collinite 845, which you are already using. With the addition of the sealant you should not have to rewax or reseal for 6 or 7 months, depending on how often you wash your truck and whether you leave it inside or outside all the time. There are many different options and I'm sure others will chime in and give you their own opinion of the process to use and the products they believe are the best.
Just cause it's loud doesn't mean it's fast and just cause it's shiney doesn't mean it's protected. Remember, going fast costs money, so how fast do you wanna go?
