Has anyone tried getting into a car wash? All the local ones to me are 7ft max. Only thing That makes contact with the height bar is those two plastic things on the roof (what are they anyways)? Was really hoping to be able to go through the touch less but don’t want to ruin anything, thanks for any input.

I second no car washes I will get ceramic coated and do my own cleaning
I don’t do automatics....only wash it myself with wand and by hand.
Not a problem fitting in car washes in redneck Red Deer 😉

There are a few you could probably go thru just check them out carefully, doubt you will get rash on your wheels with the big tires but thats a problem for my cars with car washes

The car washes at the chain gas stations have an option for" soft touch" ( like dragging sand paper over your paint) or touch less. How ever they have a large PCV tube probably 4" diameter on a wire
when you drive into the wash if you clear it, your golden. Its pretty tall guessing no troubles for a Tremor

The plastic things are the satellite receptors

Ceramic coated, so I do use touch less only car wash. White truck after 8k miles, I will have to hand wash it soon to get it perfect. So far so good with a local touch less.

I've washed once in 6200 miles. One of those wash it yourself places. I doubt I'd fit through any automated ones, and don't really want to try.
