How often is your truck detailed?

I was just thinking about how much I detail my truck. Just thinking if anyone else does it as much as me. Thankfully I have a 10' Super Duty worktruck, so my baby gets to set in the shop most of the week... Pics would be kool also!

I used to spend every weekend cleaning something but nowadays it's once a couple months that I can get around to cleaning it. The rain washes my truck more than I do now

Wash it about once every couple months, wax it twice a year (spring and fall), shampoo and steam the carpets every spring. And I only drive it on the weekends!
