    I dust it daily with a California Car Duster and wax it once per week with CSI Q-7 Wax. I can't remember the last time I washed it with soap and water.

    In the winter, I wash it about once per week.

    Enjoy washing your trucks while you can. Around the SF Bay Area, the enviro-geeks and tree-huggers have been vocal about making home car washing a crime. It is illegal to let your suds and water from your car wash to run into the gutter and into the storm drains.
    BTW, the government can have my hose nozzle after they remove it from my cold dead fingers.
    And you can forget about car wash fundraisers..

    As you can see, there is a 40% chance I will wash my truck on Monday!

    I'm pretty sure that wax will not fall from the sky, so no wax job this time around.

    I usually wash it every 1 or 2 weeks, if its raining a lot I usually I let it go longer without washing it. The truck is still pretty well waxed, so if I leave it outside while its raining it pretty much cleans the truck. Mothers wax + Optimum Opti-Seal lasts a long time.

    Once or twice a week for me, every couple of months throw on some Blackfire Wet Diamond topped with Collinite 845, I like my truck clean. Plus I detail for a living, can't have a dirty truck!
