I feel forced to take it to a regular car wash every couple of weeks and run it down that tunnel of doom, just to make sure the underbelly gets a good rinse. Before winter hit, I made sure I detailed it, wash, sealer, wax, top layer of detail wax, door jams and all.

So I guess I'm asking, what do the serious detail guys recommend for the dead of winter time care? Best things to do to ensure come spring, that my truck has survived winter?
If you can wash your truck more than once a week in the winter, I recommend Optimum No Rinse or ONR. This product is quite versatile. Can be used as a waterless wash, clay lube, and detailer.
