So my wife got me this great gift after I got the jeep. Its 1 carwash per day for an entire year. Well, I guess i am working to get my money out of it becuase I cant seem to steer clear of the wash. I generally take it through the full service wash at least 3-4 times a week then end up putting a coat of wax on it each weekend. I guess my question is, can you wash or wax too much? I dont want to get a year down the road and have a faded truck.
I wash mines at least once a week during the summer. I will give it a good claybar, polish, paint sealant and a few coats of wax before the summer ends to get it ready for the winter and do the same for the summer. I wash her once every two weeks during winter.
I have black so it is very hard to keep it clean.

waterless wash every day, maybe miss one day a week. full clay bar and wash every other week. new wax coat when I feel it is needed. paint correction/polish beginning and end of summer. black keeps you on your toes haha, but enjoy every second cleaning my car. remember every time you touch the paint with anything, (towel, clay bar, water, hand), it takes down the wax coat so if you touch your paint alot your gunna have to reapply as you will take it down faster. I detail many friends rides now after they see mine haha. If you can take it through the self wash do it, the automatic washes catch rocks in the pads and will scratch your paint, especially if thats every day . Dont use the brushes at the self wash too much, they have so many things that will scratch up your paint caught in them as well. Unless you wanna pay someone to do a paint correction or do it yourself ever few months I saw a nice hand wash is going to be your best bet. A automatic car wash every day is going to be like beating a dead horse. Your better off just spraying your truck down with water then going through one of those. sorry if that was longwinded, but detailing is a bit of a passion for me and wanted to give you as much to think about as possible haha

My jeep does not stay in the garage unfortunately so I wash it at least once a week depending on the weather. I try to do a quick wax once a month to help protect. Every 2-3 months I clay bar and rewax the ole' girl. Waiting on some goodies in the mail so I can do a paint correction.
