I'm sort of the opposite. I refuse to wash mine. Mud washes the dirt off when necessary. I actually got into a dispute with a guy at the dealership who insisted on washing mine before he would crawl under to do my free oil changes that came with the vehicle.

I believe the conversation started with, "What the hell do you think you're doing? I authorized an oil change, not a washing! It took me 3000 miles to put that mud on there. You have no respect for a Jeep, do you?!"
They stopped washing it after that.

My XJ on the other hand, I try to keep it fairly clean since I DD it.

I guess Im a mix. I like to keep my Jeep clean but Im not afraid to scratch the paint or get it dirty. Part of it comes from having to drive it every day, and if its too dirty the wife wont want to ride in it. And its perfect weather for doors off top down riding at the moment. Nothing better than date night in the Jeep.

Spilled some brake fluid on my metal fender area shit, well gives me a reason to repaint it. If its topless weather i keep it clean enough to not have dirt clods pummle me while driving otherwise i don't care what it looks like. It's my jeep and if i want a nice looking rig i would get a JK or a porsche 911 twin turbo in red

I start like that every time I get a new ride. By the second year I get tired of all the washing and waxing and return to normal.

A Jeep has to be a mud magnet, even a JK!!

I babied the Sh#% out of my last two cars (Firebird and a Saab). Hand washed and waxed them regularly, parked away from other cars, etc. When I got the Jeep, I swore to myself I wouldn't do that anymore. I mean, it's a Jeep, it's supposed to be scratched, right?
Yeah, I still park on the outskirts of parking lots...

I keep mine clean. . scratches and stuff don't bother me. . It realllly irks me when the inside is messy.

Yeah, I'm kinda meticulous about it too.

I'm not anal about keeping it meticulously clean, but I am about maintenance.

I work with a guy that will keep the Jeep in the garage if there's a 10% chance of rain.

The key is to have multiple vehicles, with varying levels of care. I have between "Did I change the oil this year?" to "bug spatter, get the cleaner". Jeep falls somewhere in the middle. It is the more expensive, afterall...
