Washing Your F150

As fun as a dirty F150 is...


We'll still need to give it the occasional wash. Do you have a method of doing it or do you just run the whole truck through the car wash?

Pretty sure you can bring a pickup into a car wash but you may want to make sure the truck bed is covered or you'll be dealing with a puddle.

I always go to car washes but I make sure it is touchless.

I've heard of the two bucked method but it may take too long for a large truck.

I avoid those bristle brush car washes but other than that I go for the automatic car wash in the winter and i do it myself with the spray hose and such during the summer.

Touchless car wash for the win. Generally good enough to get most if not all of the dirt off the truck and the main concern if salt from winter driving. Any other time in the year and the hose works just fine.

I find that getting a detailer can help since inbetween those quick touchless washes you can have your paint and overall exterior looked over and treated by a professional. Goes a long way if your like me and keep your vehicles for a long time

Kind of reviving this thread, but within my own experiences, the only difficulties with washing your pickup at home is the height but a little step ladder and you're good to go! A key thing to help is when you're drying it, utilizing something like the metro vac and blo would be ideal.

Lots of threads may need to be revived. Good stuff here. Many new vehicle owners will be able to learn from the posts we have in these forums.

Two buckets with a new clean cloth for every pass pretty much , then some waxing and all that. You can use clay too to get rid of the little bits in the paint
