How many of you just love to clean your Wrangler everyday?

Just wanted to see how many OCD Jeep owners we have.You know you love to do it! I wipe mine down everyday,how about you? Cleaning the painted areas like those inserts on the grill, doing all the glass, shining up the wheels, and applying vinyl protectant on the black. Just wanting her to look her best cruising down the road.

I spend more time looking for mud than I do trying to wash it off!

I don't have time for that. I clean it now and then, when it gets dirty.

I am very fussy about how my Jeep looks, but I also wheel mine when ever I get the chance. I just spend a couple of days cleaning afterwards. Damn things rust out quick enough as it is.

One of the great beauties of a jeep; it looks good dirty.

I understand what you're saying though, almost. I can feel a little guilty if it's dirty after several days of nice weather.

NOT ME--

My JKUR is almost 4 years old and since it's in the desert, I don't have salt/mud/bugs, to worry about, so-

I washit and waxit a couple times a year and it stays in a garage, between treks--(semi-weekly), so-

It looks clean anyway-it's--YELLOW !

I'm mostly concerned with washing down the undercarriage after wheeling.
I understand it's not good to leave all that crud under there.

call me crazy

I like it to look in showroom condition. Just seems to look better to me, plus I find the time spent cleaning it very theraputic.

I don't have time to clean it everyday, but on days like today I spend a good hour with the shop vac making sure the inside is nice and clean. Especially after I've taken the dogs out to the country for a hike in the afternoons more than once in the week.

I like the outside a little dirty, but the insides gotta be clean, somewhat clean at least

I like it both ways..... I drive big trucks to over the road @ first kept my ride spotless drove over the road . It keeps the dot off your back . Then I started logging it's impossible to keep a log truck clean.... But I still feel that your ride will last longer when you take some pride in it... Instead of riding it hard & putting it up wet .... Wink wink

I don't mind mud or dirt,and I like to shine it up. What I hate is the 12,547 (about) bugs that get on it.

How many of you clean your Wrangler everyday?

Fixed it for ya

Yeah, the meds help, but the black is way stronger.

White it may destroy the image of a jeep, I think white would have been a better choice for my happy OCD a$$.

Just sayin

Mine has been clean for a week and a half and it is killing me! It does not look right for it to be clean.
