There were some discussions about car washes in this thread if it helps. Now that people have trucks, should get more answers:

The truck weighs 6300 pounds I do not believe there will be a weight problem in the snow plus the spare tire mounted underneath should add even more weight to the rear in reference to the car wash there is a gentleman will motivation on YouTube that just took his trough The car wash he didn’t seem to have a problems with it

Hey any of you guys taken this through a car wash yet? Will it fit?
Someone posted in another thread that they took it through the car wash with no issues. Keep in mind there may be some differences for each car wash. There not one size fits all.

I wouldn't take it thru a car.... If you own a pressure washer get a "Foam Cannon" attachment...they also make one you can get that attaches to a garden hose...suds up real well.....

I have taken mine through a new one that just opened. Plenty of Raptors and even dually trucks went through before I would even think about it. It has the conveyer belt system that pulls your truck through and no rails. It also has a touch less option and the basic has basically no chemicals. Seems perfect for after I get my ceramic coating next week.

Touch less would be the way to go if your going through a car was. I’m not a fan of the brush style.

Don't have the TRX yet, but have become a big fan of the conveyor belt with a Gen 2 raptor.
Works great, and in this case does a way better we r job (new facility, new features).

Car washes are like taking sandpaper to your paint. I don’t believe that ceramic coating will protect you. Think of all those brushes with all the embedded debris spinning across your paint. Common sense tells you how damaging that would be. Invest in a good boars hair brush on a pole for $150 and it will make your hand wash much quicker.

You and me both, that shit is for the birds lol. You other guys are crazy 🤣🤣🤣, just thinking about spending 4 hours washing my car pisses me off 😂😂😂. I plan on ceramic coating mine so I can be lazy and use a touchless, and have a good detailer go through it every so often.
