I'm sorry I just dont like a dirty vehicle.

For instance the thing that bugs me the most are the rims being dusty. I stick my hand in the wheel and clean the insides every day and of course I clean the face of the rims.

The dust really bothers me. LOL


And as far as waxing goes, I do it once a month.

And every 6 months I clay bar, polish and wax.
Then this may really make you crazy. My kids wash moms car 2 times a year. Once in the spring and once in the summer. The wheels in the pictures are stock. Not blacked-out aftermarket wheels. When I had to replace the front tires, the tire guy seemed very disappointed and told my wife that she should really take better care of the wheels. To which my wife replied, "I have less of a chance getting stopped with a dirty car rather than a glistening one"...

I'm sorry an SRT shouldn't be that dirty. LOL


That dirt is ridiculous!

Really though, having dirt stay caked on the wheels like that will ruin the finish.

I would hate to see the interior of the Jeep!

Indeed you would!! .... It can easily be compared to a baseball dugout after the game! Lots of trash, spit, wrappers, crumbs, toys and perhaps some fresh (and aged) puke. Oh well.... It's all in a days work when mom chauffeurs around 3 kids.

Damn, Sorry man but that's bad. If I saw her on the steet I'd probably give her a 20 to at least take it through Mikes.

She got paypal? I think I'll send her 20 for a wash lol.

Boom. This is me to a "T." I, absolutely, hate bugs and brake dust. I have done this with all of my vehicles, so it's something i'm accustomed to doing. I paid way too much for this thing not to take care of it. It's refreshing for it to look brand new, almost, every time I look at it.

Too funny! However, my daily post on that thread would read something like... "yep, the bride still hasn't washed it'! Although, I'm afraid the redundancy could become polarizing and push to many to the edge! . Nonetheless, contributions via paypal are always welcomed. Albeit, I can't guarantee it will be spent on car washes.....

I have only washed my JEEP twice this year. Once when I pulled it out of Winter storage and just the other day, I got caught in rain and had to wash it. Otherwise, it is polished/waxed twice yearly. After EVERY use, I use a Calif. Car duster to get the dust off, then wipe it down with quick detailer and MF cloth before I park it in my enclosed garage. This has kept it looking brand new over the 3 years I have owned it.
