when you wax apply 2-3 coats of wax so it has a thicker layer on your paint... when you wash use car shampoo that doesn't strip the wax, and your dirt will wash right off. For wheels, I suggest a spray on clear sealant like these (you spray it on and walk away, it bonds as it dries). There very durable and last a while:

Just go really slow, or a different way, or a car wash in between where you start to where you need to be or, deal with it.
When I go down dirt roads or my drive way I try to get as much mud and dirt on my truck as possible. I dont know why I do that.

Its just as well Rangers look good dirty but put on a good paint sealant and the dirt will rinse off easy

I pay a couple Mexicans a few dollars, they do a pretty good job at keeping my Ranger clean In Dallas exit ****rell hill off I20 gas station beside Dennys. Oh and I stay off dirt roads. Put some gravel on the road, or road base,

If you want to keep it very clean, wash it twice a week.

California Duster.....or the like.....works great for dust between washes......I use to live in Florida on a limerock road......what a drag that was......even at 2 miles an hour the truck would turn white in a block. Those dusters are tits......easy to wipe off the dust one two three and last forever......
