daggo66 I do it in my driveway all the time. Is it really that big of an issue to aim a hose?

WXman Put the doors and top back on first, then wash.

This is much faster in the long run. Sort of like taping everything off before you paint your living room...might seem time consuming but then you can grab the paint roller and fly.

Repeat above for rinse......

JandS I do it all the time since I'm anal about cars and we rarely have our doors or top on. Mather technique is simple, you just need to go to a wand wash.

1. Get the Jeep sudsy with the soap spray, just be careful to direct the water away from the interior.
2. Use the soapy brush. I always clean it out before using so I don't scratch the paint and I go from top to bottom and do the tires/wheels last.
3. Rinse with the high pressure, again directing water away from the interior.
4. Rinse with the no spot.
5. Dry with microfiber.
