You guys are keeping your trucks nice and clean so guys like me have donor parts for my beast. I'll need a new drivers side on my truck in the next few years.

I do admire folks that keep their trucks clean, unfortunately I'll never be one of those people.I'm a stickler for maintenance but as for the body paint I figure when I can no longer look at the trail induced scratches I'll just line-x the dam thing and go worry free.Trying to keep it shiny takes the fun out of using it.
Great trucks by the way.

I'll admit that I can not stand to leave my Power Wagon dirty. It just nags at me until I have to clean her up. It is not immaculate, but I can't leave her dirty.

I use a degreaser (have tried several, most recently Simple Green), rinse the engine compartment and then take it to a nearby self service car wash where I use the low pressure spot free rinse so that I don't get water spots. Next I use Pinnacle Crystal Mist Detail Spray for the painted surfaces and 303 Protectant for the plastic and rubber components. It takes about an hour.

Don't you know anything? You can't wash a Power Wagon in muddy water! The water has to be clean :
