Your usual cleaning Schedule for you truck.

So how often do you guys clean your truck?

Mine has been once every week or once every other week.

Whats the longest your truck has ever gone without being cleaned?

I try to clean my truck once a week. Usually on Friday when i get home from work so i have a nice clean truck for the weekend. I work on a construction site so the truck gets dirty very fast.

The longest I went without washing it was 3 weeks. Everytime the end of the work week came around and I was about to wash the truck it was either raining or their was rain in the forecast.

Hahaha. Lets see here. The last time I washed my truck was I believe when I got home from Vermont on New Years.

Yep. January.

I work at a Car Wash/Oil Change. So I usually wash it once a week. While I'm going through the wash, or right after, I usually Armoral it and wipe it down to get all the dust out of it. The back half is another story... As are the carpets. :(
