Mostly it depends when it gets dirty/really dirty. In the winter time it's hard to keep it clean with all the snow and salt that they put down. I just washed it today after doing a little bit of mudding/playing.

I give up on washing my truck except for special occasions. Each time I wash it I manage to get it 6 times dirtier the next day.

Well after all the salt and sand on the roads, a clean truck would last about 30 feet down the road, so it hasn't been done since September. It's look changes day to day. If it's dry, it's white (salt), If it's damp, its brown (sand), and if it's soaked, well then you can see some sort of a shiny black under there haha
