I was the same way at first. Finally bit the bullet and got one. It's well built and well worth the price of admission. I have the MB and also the Vac n Blo. Both are made by Metropolitan Vacuum Company.

I think the Metro MB would give this Master Blaster a run for the money.

I have two buckets too! But I couldn't afford the shipping on Adams stuff, so I use "grit guards" in the form of those green drainage covers from homedepot o_O

I just dry with the shammy... I know it causes swirl marks, but oh well.

Zep 505 from HD diluted at 1:1 is a good way to clean mud terrain tires. Also the Daytona wheel brush is excellent for cleaning the wheel barrels, the inside of the wheel facing the brake rotor and caliper. I use Chemical Guys Diablo wheel gel or Meguiars Non-acid wheel cleaner with this brush.

you can find the EZ detail brush on amazon for a few bucks cheaper than the daytona wheel brush.

identical item just blue bristles instead of red.

Keep your plastic coated in UV protectant

The week I bought my truck, and after every monthly wash, I liberally apply 303 aerospace UV protectant, aviation and marine grade, no silicone. You can get it at the boat shop. I took one look at all the gray plastic on this truck and knew from experience it needed to stay bathed in this stuff from day 1, else all that would end up yellow and cracked within 5-7 years. Do yourself the same favor. On my vintage MB SL, I had plastic cracking and disintegrating (the car was 20 years old when this started happening, but it lived 12 years mostly in a garage, so that leaves sunny drives and then 8 years mostly outside as the culprits. The sun is hell. Lather every exposed interior and exterior plastic and rubber piece in the stuff.
