I keep mine looking like it has that "scruffy beard" look, so I only wash it once in a while.

Every couple weeks or so.

I usually take it through a hand free/brush free car wash and top it off with Chemical Guys V7.

My '03 I would wash about 5 times a year (It got dirty right after I washed it...). Bought a new one and I vowed to take better care of it so I'm at once a week now.

You use one bucket for clean soapy water and another where you rinse your mit after every panel on the truck. My dirty water bucket has a grit guard insert that helps trap dirt particles at the bottom. Never put your mit into the clean bucket without rinsing it in the dirty bucket first. No dirt on the mit= no swirls.

The foam gun applies soap to the truck as a pre rinse... Well worth the $$ fir sure
Interesting. I use a pretty thick sheep skin mit, and no swirl marks on my truck.

During warmer weather I'll wash my Tacoma twice a month. During winter months, it scales back to once a month. Plus, during winter months I'm forced the use the automatic car washes, which I'm not a fan of. But when it's 25 degrees outside, what can you do?

i voted monthly..but that is ambitious.

in reality. maybe 5-6 times a year. i hunt with my truck. during the hunting season..i never wash it. i keep the interior very clean, and i will wash the blood out of the bed religiously.

Mines garaged 7 days a week and only driven on the weekends and even if that. I only wash when need be....maybe once a month...just depends on the weather and where I go with it. I need to give her a good wax though...its been about a year since her last one.
