    I think it would be interesting to see how often you wash your truck, of course this depends on location, weather, conditions ect...

    But I still think it would be interesting. I live in BC so we get rain/sunshine 10 months out of the year and if it does snow, it only snows for about 1 - 2 weeks. I usually try and wash my truck every Saturday (hand wash) and other times pressure wash.

    So let's see what we can get!

    ie: If you choose "other", please post up your answer =)

    Fresh Wash!

    I wash about once a month or when it needs it. But it need it now it's got a little mud on it for a bout a week now. I was hoping it would rain and take most of it off so i didn't have to work so hard to clean it.

    In the summer I wash almost every week. In the winter it goes months without being washed. Mine is all nice and shiny right now from her first bath of the year this past weekend

    It rains here a lot, so I let the rain wash it.

    It gets waxed once a year, maybe twice if we get a good summer :cool:

    Not as much as I like cause of the water shortage here in Nor Cal. They have cut our water usage by 50%. So half to go to the car wash and its usually like $10. Which this isnt bad but I take my time and then people start piling up waiting to get there's done. So Im rushed and want to get out of the way. Detailing the truck is Like therapy, I can spend all day cleaning and waxing it.:D

    Probably 3 times total in 2009, hasn't been washed since summer.

    Keep meaning to get it clean but haven't had a day off work where I'm not busy with school or the weather won't permit it. Need to get a wax on it as well. Girlfriends probably getting an Integra this week that I'll be cleaning like mad as well.
