Default Re: how clean is your truck?

This is mine on a normal day. Truck will be 14 years old in a couple months, has 150,000 miles on it, and spent it's first 92,000 miles living outside.... just outside of a major city. Still lives outside because of college.



















I honestly don't get why everybody feels the need to post a thread every time they clean their trucks. If the truck is kept clean, there shouldn't be much difference in the before and after, especially if it's washed weekly and detailed monthly.

End of rant...not sorry either lol

only time my truck gets washed is when it rains. it's a god damn truck that's used to haul shit and go off-road. it aint a lincoln or cadillac i hate people who are anal about their vehicles. That's a mental disorder called OCD!

its a truck thats what its used for??? yea because every truck that comes off the line is meant to be treated like a pos and go off-road even if its a 2wd. Or use a 4 cylinder to haul. Yea that Smart.. Because your know a f150 lighting is meant to be dirty and only washed when it rains because its a truck. Or a new f150 lariat. Because you know all those owners don't wash them because its a truck right? a 50k truck that is meant to be washed only when it rains. And its not a disorder its a hobby. There is nothing wrong with a person keeping there truck clean. OCD? now that made me laugh. Sounds like you have OCD about other people keeping there trucks clean.

I agree that different years can be judged just because of the age of the truck. I mean, mine's a 2011 so it's not that hard to get a great shine out of it. Also depending on your lifestlye and how much time you are willing to put into keeping your truck clean will make a difference. We all use our trucks to varying degrees of intensity. Mine isn't spotless all the time but I try to keep it clean and detailed as much as the cirsumstances allow.

Aside from that, what do people with hard water use to keep their trucks from spotting?

I felt like throwing in some pics as well since everyone else is doing it...some of my favorites lol.
