    Where the hood sets onto rubber blocks at the firewall, (any truck brand) what is your favorite treatment to keep the squeak away? Grease? Graphite? ........

    I use/put cut out socks and slip them on. No lube mess and no squeaky noise.

    Even on the side rubbers on the hood get “socked”

    Awesome. My 567 has a 3rd contact point up high about where the vertical forms over to horizontal. I have plenty old stretched elastic winter socks to cut up.

    Tire soap , it's like soft wax. Does a good job a if you get any on your clothes it'll wash out easily. Have to reapply after a truck wash. I my try the old sock method.

    Those a pretty cool. Bit spendy for one skin, but if you run a show truck or similar, it's good to know someone makes such a thing.

    Like Murphys or different? That murphys is some slick stuff. I have buckets of it in concentrate. Have to be real careful not to drop any on the concrete. But when diluted, not so bad.
