Black exterior trim care?

What do you guys use on your balck plastic exterior trim (door handles, bed rail trim, bumper) to make it look decent...mine is always dull looking and faded looking ecspecially the bed rail trim....i have tried that back to black stuff but its greasy and when it rains it runs down the paint and makes the truck look horrible. Any other ideas?

I used tire wet one time, lasted a few weeks, just make sure you don't hit the paint with it, leaves marks.

Use tire cleaner at the car wash. It works wonders, at least I think so.

I really like 303 Aerospace Protectant. It lasts for a couple weeks at a time including through rain. I used it a ton on my Explorer Sport's lower trim, roof rails, mirrors, and wiper cowl. It's the best stuff that I have found that looks great and lasts for a decent amount of time. It's also a UV protectant so it should help reduce the effects of the sun as well.
