polish them with a finish polish to get them nice and clean. im sure there will be little scratches in there from the gravel and crap stuck to the bottom of your shoes.
then hit the polished areas with a good long lasting paint sealant (different than a wax) and top it with a couple of coats of wax.
this is the foundation/prep to keeping these area looking great.
then for routine maintenance, wash it when you wash the rest of the truck. (you could also get away with warm water in the area to clean it). just dont use dishsoap ((it will strip waxes and sealants) unless you plan on starting the entire process again.
then use the QD or another awesome product (DG aquawax) to maintain it.
