....wash your truck. It seems like I am washing mine at least once a week, if not 2-3 times some weeks. I usually just run it through a good, trusted, touchless automatic but sometimes I hand wash 'er. Is anyone else as ocd about there truck as me?

Guilty. Glad winter is over, I was spending $35 a week on Laserwashes.

Now that nasty salty road spray is pretty much gone, once a week. Cali Dust Mop/Quik Detail daily.

I hardly wash mine because everywhere I go it gets dirty anyway. The only time it stays clean is when I'm at home in Dallas.

at the very least, once a week. i cant stand it being dirty and especially fingerprints all over the doors from people closing them. it shows up a lot cuz my paint is pretty dark and im so anal about it being clean. ive never put it through a carwash tho, its only been washed by me and i plan on keeping it like that cuz i dont really trust anyone else with it

Once a week on the GMC because it's a bug collector and my DD so it gets a min 65 miles daily... the Tahoe maybe once every two weeks but it's only used around town and stays in the garage.

i use quik detailer pretty much everyday along with the cali dust brush....workin on a farm though, i just give up when we're in season because its impossible, im goin down gravel/dirt roads everyday to get equiptment thats scattered around the county, and getting to fields that equiptment is in that needs fuel, even though i dont like my truck pulling our trailer since its just hooked up to the bumper with a ball and tears the shit out of my plastic.

Summer/Fall/Winter everyday, i drive the duramax everyday in the fall since we're pulling wagons so i can leave my truck under some sheets in the shop so it stays clean.

At least once a week if my work schedule permits and the weather cooperates.
Sometimes i wash it in the rain even. My kids and their friends think I am nuts.

Actually I have done that too, rain water rinses clean and isn't as hard as the tap water. run out and wipe it down when it stops...

3 or 4 times a day :read:






ok, not really. About 1x/week on the s10, same for the M. Unless I'm product testing, then maybe a little more often.

Few times a year. Seriously, it's garaged all the time with a THICK layer of dust. :rofl2: Ford receives the soap at least weekly.

Once or twice a week. Usually once a week though, I don't like seeing my truck dirty. I like keeping it clean cause it looks awesome clean.

over the winter... I dont wash it. I didnt wash my truck from sometime in October until March.

I do it once a week now... but I'm still waiting for it to really warm up to completely detail it inside and out

I hardly drive the orange truck, but it still gets washed at least once a week. The Jeep only really gets washed in the winter, and that's only to keep the salt and crud off of it so it doesn't rust anymore than it already has.

Maybe twice a month.. I wish I could wash her more but it never happens. It doesn't help that my driveway isn't paved and that it rains like 4 times a week.
