Nice! Yeah, my JKU is covered in salt and grime. Going to VRY tomorrow actually to get it washed properly.

I would always hand wash using a two-bucket system. You can YouTube all day long about how to avoid swirls.

When it's cold as hell out I get it done at this amazing place in Sterling. They're called VRY Auto Detail. It'll cost you $25, but they hand was the car AND presoak the car first. Presoaking the car (then power washing it off) gets rid of all the salt and grime that you would typically just swirl around if you washed by hand. They're a professional detailing service, so they really know what they're doing.

vatsalagi there is one behind Casa Chimayo in Manassas, i take my JK 350AEV there, It accepts my 3.5" life with 35 tires ok, no problems after several runs. Does putty good as well. I have a hard top so can't speak to softies.

HRPinDC In Tyson's there's a place on Route 7, I think it's called Champion that washes by hand. This is where I go when I can't wash her myself.

RangerJoe Great! Thanks for the advice. I would definitely rather wash by hand but too cold.

jp2611 That is the type I have been using on my '04 for the last nine years....but there are more trail marks on it that you wouldn't see any from the "car" wash...but we also run the JK/ JKU/ and 300 through there as well with no Ill effects......but I generally only use them when it is to cold to wash with sprayer DIY at same "car" wash

Car wash

There is a Carwash that advertises brushless, soft cloth. The way it works is a conveyor belt moves the vehicle through a series of roller looking things that are supposedly made up of soft cloth that spin very fast and cleans all sides of the vehicle. I was wandering if this would be okay, or harmful, or make swirl marks on my new Jeep's body? It's a 2 door hard top wrangler. Thanks for your input.
