I have a black truck too. I use the two bucket method and the hose drip instead of using a sprayer - keeps the water spots away. Also, I clean and dry a section at a time. Start with the top and work my way down. I always use brand new micro fiber towels to dry after every wash then when done I use the lightly dampened towels to wipe out the door wells and the fender wells. After I know it's dry I use a product called JaxWax. It's a liquid carnuba wax that's easy to apply and really shines. The trick is to leave the paint alone as much as you can and apply the wax in a gentle straight line and no swirling action. Several thin layers are better than one thick layer. I stay away from any "dusters" or anything that may take the dust off but over time will scratch the paint. My two cents...
