Mine arent foggy yet but I was wondering if I can apply something to keep this from happening?
Not sure if UV light causes it of just from driving/particles in the air.

Mine was a 2010 and at 6-1/2 years were just starting to get hazy, mileage was at about 118,000 miles. I'm guessing time and sun exposure was responsible. I will keep an eye on this truck to see how it progresses.

Wax or polish works to clear them up. It lasts for a few months. I do that every few months.

If they look fine now, I highly recommend installing Xpel headlight protection film. I've had this stuff on my 2010 for a few years now and my lights look brand new. I also apply 303 protectant to the film every few weeks.

They sell screen protector stuff for phones and tablets, but you can order a larger sheet and cut your own shapes out of it. It's that "self-healing" stuff, similar to the clear film by the rear wheels.

Xpel for the win. That film works well for both impact protection and protection from hazing. Been using it on my headlights since the year I bought my truck. Had my original headlights on for 6 years before retrofitting HID projectors into brand new headlights. The originals were still crystal clear.

I have tried all kinds of treatments and coatings - from the kits you buy with several sanding and polishing, 3M protection - you name it. None deliver great results other than lens replacement. BUT - the one that is not only easy but yield decent results for a period of time is this:

- wet sand with 600 until all yellow has been removed (that is how plastic will tarnish from UV)
- clean off all residue, let the foggy lens dry
- spray with 3 light coats of UV protecting clear coat. let the cc dry between each coat. more coats is not better - it will chip and also make resanding more inconvenient in the future.
