I use microfiber cloths, they do not scratch the surface at all...work really good. I bought a pack at Sams that comes with like 50 of them and I use one until it is wet then I pick up another dry one...

What i would do is get yourself two adams waffle weave drying towels. Then pull your truck in and hit the cracks and areas with the air compressor after that spray the vechile down with adams detail spray then after that you can take the high spots off with a california sqeegee. then do long sweeping motion with the towels to take the rest off the water and detail spray off. you also should put some detail spray on the towel.

I make my wife blow on the portions I've alrady washed while I'm finishing up the rest of the truck. J/K I use a bag o rags because they're really soft cotton. I use almost a whole bag because I dry as I go but the bags are only $2 so it's worth it to me. The leftovers go under my backseat for when I check fluids. Tried the highway thing once but ended up with about a thousand bugs on the grille again after just washing it.
