Default How often do you wash your truck.

I wash mine about every 2 weeks. I figure that's more than the genreal populus but might be closer to par here.

I do a plain-water rinse at least once per week to knock off road dust. Give it a soap bath every other week. And hand-wash maybe 2-3x a year.

I wash Rocky by hand about 2-3 times a month when it's nice out. But when it's snowing and cold and there is salt completely covering the truck i take it through the auto wash as much as possible I hate salt!

Would wash my truck at least once a week . Then acquired other vehicles . The truck got back burnered . Once I start driving it more frequently I start washing it more .
