I try to wash 1X a week but have 2 other cars to take of. But I wax 1 vehicle a month. As far as the interior all I do is empty it, wash off floor mats and take an electric leaf blower to the inside .

When I bought the truck I was living in Michigan. Summertime once every week, usually on Fridays after work or Saturdays after work. Wintertime I would run it through the carwash once sometimes twice a week with the underbody wash. Usually detail a few times a year. Spring, summer twice, fall, and after hunting season. Once I move back to Michigan I may be getting a vinyl wrap before the snow starts to fall.

I try and wash mine a few times a week. Sometimes I only get to do it once. I wax it monthly, and do the interior weekly. I clean the engine monthly.

2012 Ram started life as Lonestar Edition. Converted to a R/T. Murdered out, led conversion short ram, Nitto trail grappler tires.

If you are washing and waxing correctly you shouldn't be getting any swirl marks. Regardless of how much or how little you wash/wax. Swirl marks are caused by inappropriate methods or by automatic car washes.

It's winter here, so it's been seeing the carwash once a week.
