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

    My '03 I would wash about 5 times a year :eek: (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.

    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.
