Does this include the times you stage a photo by pouring buckets of mud on your truck and pretending you went off-roading?

There is no option for "never". I'll rinse the majority of the mud and racing stripes off, but that's all. Having a dirt driveway kinda defeats that idea. Good thing I've got white paint.

I'd like to see the age demographic with this vote. I have found that the older I get, the less I wash/wax my vehicles.

during the winter, when the salt builds up, i use my finger and write "DANGER RANGER" down the entire side, wheel to wheel, both sides. and on the tailgate. might be bad for the paint, but everyone thinks its funny lol. at gas stations i never know what number pump im on, so i tell the clerk $40 on the pump where the danger ranger is at

summer, it it was when ive got enough quarters in my cup holders to do it. but i finally found my pressure washer, so ill probly do it more.

I couldnt pick any of the options in the poll because i think its best to wash your truck when it needs it. You see it everyday and you can tell when your bitch starts gettin dirty and needs a good bath.
