    I wash my trucks with soap and water after each snow event.
    I grease the plows every other time out and I grease the trucks every month.

    I have a do-it-yourself car-wash only 2blocks away. It is down a steep hill to boot. After each salt/plow event I take it over there and pressure wash everything. Behind everything,under everything and around everything. I even make sure any ice build up behind rear drums on axles is knocked off.

    I then drive up the hill which allows most of the excess water to drip off and park in my huge heated garage I built. Kick on the heater and wait a few hours. Go out and grease everything up clean off the windows and give a good look over and under.

    It is great having a large garage finally. I completed it last year. 25'x40' heated and insulated. It has a high point inside of 20' so I can later install a electric/hydro lift. I can pull both of my trucks in side by side with plows on and walk around them. Door is 16'w x10'h.
