X2 on this! primo has generously written detailed how-to's on most every subject regarding the care of your Rams exterior, interior, and even the engine bay. He is our resident guru on these matters, and has done extensive research on many products. Everything that I have tried on his suggestion (be it product or technique) has turned out way better than I expected. So do a little digging in this section of the forum. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks again for the help, I will take Primo's advice for the right product and tool's. However I will practice on my wife's 2012 Mitusbishi RVR first.. ( just for confidence before I touch my Ram ! )

It's really not as hard as it may seem. The first time may take a little more time, but after you have established a good base to work from it won't take you long for the upkeep. There is a ton of information out there about detailing and detail products and it is easy to get overwhelmed, however Primo has pretty much broken it down to something that is easy to understand. Luke is also a great resource here so you can have confidence in his recommendations also.
