My jeep has a lot of angles and dangles, so usually after a couple desert/dirt trips I just use a couple old beach towels

Do the windows first then the rest a chamois is way too much work and won't get to the off-angle spots !!

Large high quality waffle weave microfiber towel is the best option. Also have decent luck with Absorber (syn. chamois)

I have tried all the techniques listed above but the best thing I have found is using a good old fashion cotton diaper. These suck up the water and leave no streaks even on the glass. I wash them in hot water after 4 or 5 uses and tell the wifey to never use fabric softener. I sometimes use a bath towel to get the majority of the standing water off then go right over it with the diaper. I would never use anything else even on my car or harley.

Your leaf blower will get rid of the majority of water quickly, easily and scratch free. Then finish it with the drying tool of your choice....

I should have added the leaf blower to my technique as well. I always use the leaf blower, I use the electric for the bike and cars, to get the water out of the cracks, off the rims and the big pools first. Then go with the diapers.

I use one of these two. As for washing the Jeep, the puddles I use to wash the heavy dirt off my Jeep leave particles all over it, so why work them into the paint?

Let nature take it's course and do the drying for ya!!

If there's no puddles around for washing, I'll go to the local power wash, but still air or sun dry. My Jeep's a DD, yet is still for wheelin', not polishin'!!

Nothing wrong with taking good care of your investment.... Those who choose otherwise are still ok in my book, but vehicles cost too much, and depreciate too quickly (even unloved Jeeps) to not show them some love... Guess who's gonna be happier when it's time to sell...

Y'all carry on, you're making mine worth even more!
