    I take it in for a wash at the dealer once a month or so. They do a reasonably good job.

    Still trying to figure out how to fit it into my shower stall!

    ...I actually let the dealer handle it whenever it goes in for an oil change - so maybe twice a year. Otherwise, Mother Nature can just get off her fat arse and rain on the damn thing! I contribute by not driving, thus, it gets washed. ;)

    I think the real question is how many burger wrappers can you stuff behind the seat - THAT needs a poll...!

    I like to wash it once a week (if it isn't going to rain the day after...) and wax every 3 months. I give it a good interior and close detailing job every other time I wash.

    I actually really like cleaning it because I get to listen to music and not think about other stuff.

    Plus, I love the way my truck looks like this:

    Just sat down 820pm from finishing washing mine. I wash it when it needs it. Generally every 2 weeks but sometimes depending on the circumstances can be 2x a week. Just depends.
