Car vacuum or wetvac for sand in a jeep?

I am tired of driving to car wash to vacuum sand of the jeep. Have any of you bought a car vac that is really strong sucking up sand or should I buy a wetvac?

You havenít stripped the carpet out of it? I used compressed air to clean out my truck.

I'll let you know when I get home. In my experience it's excellent with everything including dog hair in the carpet. Very strong and quiet. I've never had a problem getting sand out of the carpet and seat stitching, etc.

I have the same rigid, it is indeed a beast. If you do get it buy a few filters as they tend to clog fairly quickly if you use it on a lot of fine dust such as sawdust.
