I feel guilty that I haven't washed my Jeep since I wheeled it last weekend. It's rained too much though.

Haven't washed mine since.........August. Of course If I did it now odds are the doors would freeze shut. Only get about 8 inchess of moisture a year and most now is going to fall as snow if it does anything. Just clear and cold now.

I clean/wash/vacuum my Wife's 07 Jetta and the TJ every week... Dirty or not. Good habits are hard to break. Waxing and polishing done twice a year.

I took the time to wash, clay bar, wax, and polish it at the beginning of the summer. The rain / snow can do the rest right?

Sorry, I was just "getting even" since she thinks I wash my Jeep too often. Last night she said as I was geting the hose out, "oooh, got another speck of dirt on it?" She is just jealous I think.

Got to agree with TnDz TJ - wash and clean out every weekend - good habits? nope just routine maintenance - you wouldn't let the dif fluid get dirty, or your oil - so why let the outside and inside stay dirty.

Remember cleanliness is next to ...........................sexiness

Havn't washed mine since I got it in 2006 . I have done very little off roading with it so I dont see the need. I should wax it since the sun is killer out here, but it isnt even my car its my dads!

What makes it even more of a challenge is we dont have a full top so it would have to be spot cleaned, I mean who has the time for that?

I work at a car wash and I lucked out that my boss loves jeeps so it doesn't matter how muddy it gets. Mines gets washed damn near everyday and waxed every Sunday.

I spent about eight hours cleaning just the inside of mine last week, I took off all the roll bar padding (what a pain) i also layed down the windsheild for first time since i had the roll bar disconnected from the windsheild to remove the padding, it layed right down i thought the hinges would be rusted. also cleaned all the vents,dash,windows and the top..needless to say i wont be playing in the mud with no doors again.. used about 3/4 bottle of simple green, about a half bottle of armorall wipes and 2 rolls of papper towels......
