Re: Anyone powerwash
powerwash doesn't really clean it, you'll still need a sponge to wash the paint.

Just turn the pressure down, start at like 40 degrees and see what works from there. I wash mine at 25 degrees or less frequently

I've powerwashed once and just give it up after it really didn't do as much as I would have liked it too vs the normal hose.

I use the PW now and then, but it indeed doesn't really clean the jeep, you still need to use a sponge to get the dirt of. For mud and other heavier stuff if works great though.

Re: Anyone powerwash
If I can be bothered dragging the PW out yes, but normally just use the hose. I don't do many miles (~50 week) so don't need to remove massive amounts of dirt.

Although, if she gets a little dirty after a trip I will get the PW out and the foam lance and have some fun! I would do it weekly but the PW is more of a hassle for me.
