Jayincali will become famous soon enough

The steps listed above are pretty much spot on. I would add one extra step that was not covered and just about everyone forgets about it. POLISH.

I would most def pick up a DA polisher as well, and then to get you started a light cut pad, polish pad and finish pad. That should suffice for now, you can always add to your collection later on. (Make sure to wash the pads so the pad isn't cross contaminated and you don't get the buildup of product dried up in the pores)

Wash Need to remove any residue from the clay.
Polish. This is where your depth and gloss come from. Since the truck is new, pick up a good non cutting polish and run the machine on 3-4. You’re not correcting anything, so no need for high speed.
Sealant, a good sealant will protect you finish allot longer than just waxing alone.
Wax you can always enhance the finish with a good carnauba that will add extra depth and gloss.
