When your neighbors ask, when was the last time you washed that "thing"
Ok I know it's only been 5 months, and dry mud has fallen off in the driveway, buy hey, I kept the windshield clean ! :)

So I break out the power washer under & over, soap & sponge, & I realize I have headlights gleaming again.
HJ would be proud of my fall detail job with 4 coats of wax completed on the Jeep.
It was an all day job, will see how long it lasts for!

Looks great!

If you'd like more longevity, have you tried synthetic sealants or ceramic coatings yet? Price wise have come way down, and can still be top coated with some carnuba!

I have to move again and will be losing my garage, I'll be doing a ceramic coating to the kj soon!

Bert gets a bath when I darn well feel like it...unless there is mud and such under the hood/radiator. During the summer months, the coating of fines and dust keeps all the smashed bugs from sticking. (LOL)

But, in all seriousness, I wash the beast weekly in winter due to all the road salt. (And I'm fairly certain Nebraska uses more salt per capita than anywhere else...) Spring, summer, and fall, I generally wash once a month.
A dirty Jeep has done Jeep stuff and is proud of it. So many pavement princesses here, it is kind of bragging rights in my mind.

Used to at least once a week with normal pavement driving
Now that I live on a back road ( dirt, patches of limestone, dust, dirt, horse ( AMISH BUGGY droppings ) cow patties etc when it gets so bad I am embarrassed!
waxed once a year , used to be monthly
and just say no to ceramic coating , heard and read so many bad things about it
JAX Wax and that is is
