I wash mine once a week also.

Except in winter time then I just clean the rims off from the salt.

I was telling BryFin83 my environmental neighbors hate me.

i used to wash mine once a week like clockwork but in recent years ive started slacking. since i dont drive my ranger very much anymore and it sits outside i only wash it before dune trips. my F-150 gets washed every couple weeks just to get the brake dust off the front wheels.

Of course it depends where I go,but being white it does not look dirty unless you look close.I thought white would be tuff to keep clean when actually it is the easiest IMO. Had grey Green Blue and silver and white is easier.Now when you do wash it it shows every speck and I probably spend more time on it.

Default Re: How often do you wash your truck

The only time I used to wash it was when it rained, or after a lot of wheelin, and the mud was starting to affect the way it drives. Now that it sees a majority of street use, I wash it about once a month. It's weird, I like it clean but for some reason right after I wash it I get this feeling like it's time to go get it dirty again.

Really depends. My paint is still in great shape, so I tend to go once or twice a week. But its rained a lot lately, so I've slacked.

didnt have an every third week option so i selected two weeks because that would be my second closest average. theirs a skinny dirt lot next to my driveway so i wash it and the damn wind blows on a layer of dirt. sorta lose the motivation when i wash it and literally 4 hours of just being parked later its already dirty. darn black.

I used to wash it about every other weekend but since I get it so dirty at work I have turned into a "When it rains" washer LOL. Just no use in cleaning it only to run it through the dirt everyday.

My work is the same way... Well, half of the road is paved and the other half isn't so I started driving the long way to keep the truck cleaner longer and 'cause the unpaved part is bumpy as shit... I figure it's always gonna get dirty eventually so I still wash her every 2 weeks.
