Don't think so. Most wax has silicone so our spot repairs won't stick right....and yes, camo is flat.

I use used synthetic motor oil and brush it some places (then wipe off). WD-40 too. But then leaves rag lint.

I think it would depend on what kind of paint you have and how much time you have to work all the variable shapes around the truck. I know it wouldn't work on my truck, but if you've got some more conventional paint on yours, meh, go for it.

I mean, if you treat it like a show truck, why not have it look like one. I have plans for a custom paint job, but I don't ever think I'll be waxing it, if only because I'm too lazy.

You could always apply a dozen layers of clear coat and wax that up. Again, it's your truck if you want it to look shiny, more power to you, it's not like you'll be going to war in it.
