Manly Up Your Truck Washing Routine

You’re a RAM Truck owner, you own the toughest truck available on the market.  You can use it to haul dirt, tow trailers, load it down full of tools, tailgate football games, and any other awesome manly thing you can think of.

But sometimes you have to use it for transportation on “date night.”  And if you’re not careful going on a date with your wife or girlfriend often means you’ve got to take off your work boots and put on “fancy” clothes, trim up that beard and comb your hair, and even more unthinkable, clean your truck.  Washing the dirt, the proof how hard your RAMs been working can make you feel less like the rogue, tough, lone-wolf that you are and if you’re not careful it can hurt your RAMs feelings (it knows you’re parking it in the movie theatre lot while you go watch a romantic comedy).

Don’t worry, there’s ways to make your truck shine in preparation for a date while feeling as manly as possible.  Here are a few tips courtesy of Monroeville Dodge.
First step, when your RAM sees that bucket of soap and water, it’s likely to get offended.  What’re you gonna do, light some scented candles to go with it?  After all it’s not a Prius, it doesn’t need a bubble bath.   Best way to make it more comfortable, dump in some Tabasco Sauce.  That should make that bubble bath a little more manly.

Now you’ve got your tabasco bubble bath, next step is to make sure you appear manly when you’re scrubbing away.  Perhaps now is a good time to dress like a football player.  And hook up that iPod to blast some Motley Crue, and don’t forget to belch load and often.  You should also scream catch phrases from your favorite action movies.  Now that’s how a man cleans his truck.
Last, but not least, applying wax.  When you inform your RAM that you’re going to wax it, it could get upset, what’s a man without some hair on his legs, or chest, or face… or back… pretty much anywhere except the top of the head.  

Man up the way you wax your truck, try eating some bacon while you do it, or T-Bone steaks, pretty much any meat.  Avoid vegetables and diet drinks at all costs.
These are just a few ways you can make the way you clean your truck more manly.  Do you have some tips on how to man up your car washing routine?  Let us know in the comments below!

If you’re looking for a truck that’s as manly as you are visit Monroeville Dodge at 3633 William Penn Highway in Monroeville, PA or give us a call at 412-856-1700 today!

Dodge Durango: How to Keep the Interior Clean After a Week of Hard Work

Owning a Dodge Durango is an investment, so it is crucial to treat it the right way by ensuring that both its interior and exterior are clean. Driving a clean Dodge Durango in Monroeville, Pennsylvania is not only about boosting its aesthetic appeal. It is necessary to maintain the cleanliness of your Monroeville Dodge since this is also valuable in increasing its lifespan. Note that contaminants, dirt, and debris can lead to permanent damage to your vehicle if not immediately removed. This results in the breakdown of some of the vehicle's major components, peeling paint jobs, corroding metal, cracking tires, and the tearing of interior parts. The following tips are crucial in ensuring that your Dodge Durango stays as clean and as well-maintained as possible regardless of how hard it worked during the week:
1. Use Durable and Custom-fit Mats

These mats are extremely useful in maintaining the cleanliness and look of your interior floorboards. Make sure to choose mats with sturdy and reliable construction, as well as raised canals, as these features are valuable in preventing your interiors from getting messed up while you are driving and when storing items inside it. Some of the best custom-fit floorboard mats designed for the Dodge Durango is built to last while also having the ability to handle harsh outdoor weather.

2. Avoid Using Paper Towels or Dry Rags in Cleaning Plastic Lenses

This tip is crucial especially if you plan to remove the dirt out of the plastic lenses in your Dodge Durango's instrument panel gauges. Note that dry and small particles of grit and dust might scratch the surfaces. If your vehicle lenses get clouded, then consider using a plastic cleaner along with a damp and clean sponge or terry cloth rag. This can help in preventing excess moisture that can only damage the electronic instruments in your Dodge's interiors.

3. Park your Dodge Durango in a Different Direction

This is important in keeping the upholstery from deteriorating and fading. Parking in a different direction is also helpful in preventing the sun from hitting the same surface. Keeping a sunroof or window open is also essential during the dry season to prevent the buildup of heat inside the vehicle.
