Peter T Parked it outside today. Man did it ever rain. Looks like new and it was free. The best kind.

When I had the Krown treatment for my 2013 JK in November, the technician (who owns Jeep Wranglers) said no matter how ugly the Jeep got with salt, after the Krown treatment, DO NOT WASH IT during the winter!! Unless it's an amazing sunny warm day and can be dried completely. He warned me that if I washed it before the Spring, it would affect the protective rust treatment. He said so many Jeep owners make the mistake of washing their Jeeps after a rust-prevention treatment during the winter because they can't handle the sight of salt.

So, I am heeding his advice after viewing many things about Krown online. Come the Spring, I am going to use what I did with my previous vehicle-- a waterless wash and wax treatment (Dryshine from Can Tire) it worked great!! Will use on my Jeep to prevent rust from moisture until my next Krown treatment in the Fall. Hope this helps!

RevCo666 If i can avoid it, i try not to travel on hwy's during the winter. Just look at what happened on the 401 recently... 70-80 car pile up? Crazy...

Dan2012 I haven't seen any sand here this year. All anti-icing agent and salt. The highways have been better this year so I guess the spray is doing its job.

Peter T They start by spraying brine first. Then switch over to a mixture of salt and sand. More salt though.

RevCo666 Do they tend to use alot of salt in larger cities? Our budget is cheap in our little town and simply use sand mostly which I guess is better then nothing lol

Dan2012 Yep I always wait for the ( slightly) warmer weather to wash the girl so the salt doesn't begin to activate and start eating away...and try to wipe it down so it doesn't freeze up too bad. Nothing worse than pulling up to the drive-thru at Timmies and not be able to order because my windows don't roll down.

Peter T Well they are calling for some warmer weather this week and rain. Maybe park it outside

RevCo666 I do it myself in those washing bays up here, that way i dont get my tailgate area too soaked. And not often as i dont like driving an ice cubed brick hehe you might be able to get away washing it more often due to southern temperatures.

Peter T Ok you guys must be washing your jeeps. Power wash? Auto with brushes and hanging straps? Touchless ?
