Washing your truck?

What do you guys use to wash your truck. Im getting sick of climbing all over mine with a sponge to wash it. I have been looking for a brush on a pole like they use for big rigs but, I can't find anything. What do you guys use or find helpful?

Re: Washing your truck?

I don't know who makes it but I bought it at Wally World.. It's blue in color and has a telescoping handle that is six feet long extended. It has the capability to put a hose on it but I don't use it.. I think it was like $15.00. It works great. I also bought the same brand wheel brush and it works perfect..

Re: Washing your truck?

i wash mine with a similar brush, once its all bubbly i go over the area with a soft sponge. I hate having a dirty truck and dont mind taking the time to clean but a brush like mentioned above should do great.

Re: Washing your truck?

I go to the car wash, or use my own high pressure washer...
After the "Soap" cylce, I have a pressurized bottle with water/Sunlight mix that I spray on the truck as I use a soft Terry towel to wipe the entire truck down with...then I use the "Rinse" cycle to wash everything off.
After that, I use a shamie (spelling??) and hand dry the entire truck.
No residue, and the truck shines afterwards.

Re: Washing your truck?

I use a long brush I bought at walmart....pretty soft bristles. not hard enough to scratch the truck, but enough to get the mud off

Re: Washing your truck?

my friends dad puts soap in a small tank sprayer and uses a power washer to finish it off, but I cant remember what he uses to scrub. That is for a semi though
