How Often Do You Clean Your Truck?

Well the title says it all. I do mine about every two weeks, except when I do it's more like a detail. I hate my undercarriage being dirty, so I spend a majority of my time up under my truck knocking dirt off. My wife seems to not understand, she says it's a truck and that it's suppose to be dirty.

Anyone else have that same opinion? Either way I'm not changing, I like a clean ride.

I also like to keep a clean truck. But, being that I live in an aptartment complex, I don't get to clean mine as often as I would like. But I try to clean it whenever I go home to visit the folks. So, about once a month at least. But I keep up with the interior almost weekly.

Not as much as I should. I wash it regualrly, buff and wax once every 2 months or so, and fully detail everything like once a year.

Try to clean the outside every 2 weeks or so.

I too like to keep the inside clean, I can't stand riding in a dirty truck.

I'd wash my truck once a week but it's been raining here about every other day and it seems like if I wash it rains, if I don't wash it don't rain. I dunno??? haha

I clean mine out every weekend. After a week of working out of the truck, it gets pretty dirty. The amount of cleaning depends on how dirty it is...

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes to keep a clean truck. Mine throughout the week doesn't get to dirty, if it did I might turn to once a week. Like someone else mentioned it's been raining every other day, so I don't go to crazy on the outside. Next weekend if it's nice I'm going to do my pre-winter wax...
