I got through the local car wash once a week just to rinse off the salt. My truck stays in the garage at night so it pretty much always melts off.

I wash it when the white turns grey.



Also always get the underbody blasted when you do wash it.

I don't really wash it in the winter, just take it to the car wash and rinse all the crap off on fridays.

I wash mine just like I do in the summer. Every week. If they salt the roads, I'll drive the Silverado. I know its unavoidable if you live up north, so I say spray the rust prone areas with Pam. It'll keep the salt from sticking quite as bad whe you go to spray it off.

My grandpa who lives up in minnesota washes his truck once a week underbody and all!! Call this funny but to rinse the underbody off he uses one of those sprinkler things just throws it underneath and lets it go for a while!!

I've done that. I used a fertigation sprinkler and instead of putting liquid fertilizer in it, I put some dish washing liquid.

How do our antennas hold up in car washes actually? I want to get mine washed today or tomorrow to get the salt off, any suggestions as too which carwash is safe? I know there is one that has those round brushes and then one other one that just kinda has long pieces of cloth that smack around on the car.
