OP. I live in a world of dust six months a year. During this time, I remove dust only when it really bugs me.

One note is to wipe down your seatbelts as well as the metal bar that the seat belt moves on.

The dust eventually coats both the belt and the bar, causing the belt to slow way down and sometimes fails to retract.

Believe it or not, the dust got into the retractor and both front seatbelts got replaced under warranty.

Since then I make it a point to wipe down the belts and the bar.

I live offgrid on very dusty roads. The occasional off-road trip will likely not have as much effect.

Try to keep the windows closed and cabin recirc air on.

Have fun!

I use a Ryobi Turbo Blower and a mini detailing kit.
only takes me about 40 min preparation to capture an image.
Since I take 200-412 shots every time I’m out, that means 8 hrs on the Trail I only cover about 8.56 miles or W T F ever in kilos or something that y’all use up North ;) Time consuming but I capture some Beautiful “Clean” images :) :buffer::buffer::driver::happy175: View attachment 353671 View attachment 353672 View attachment 353673 View attachment 353674 View attachment 353675
I have always wondered how in the world your truck looks so clean on the trail, now I know!

Planning my first off road experience in my new (to me) :)Raptor and I was wondering, how often should I stop to dust off the truck. I have a main California Duster and a back up in case the first breaks or someone volunteers to help.
You should not go off road because your truck will get dusty. Driving through the landscaping to cut in line at Starsux doesn't count.
