I spent something like 3 hours with my buddy's pressure washer cleaning the undercarriage and whatnot on the Hoe yesterday AFTER a few car washes in the past week and got out tons of mud. I had to shovel all of it off the driveway!
My friend told me people spray baby lotion on their frames and undercarriage and the mud just rinses right off real easy. Anybody ever tried that? What are some other good ways?

Dont go in the mud. Once you do it tho, its there and its not coming back off. You think its all gone, but its still EVERYWHERE.

Get some mudd-off. I use it on my race car every week. Makes cleaning it alot easier. Not easy but easier. You just mix it up 12 parts water and 1 part mudd off. Baby oil also works pretty well. I just don't use it because the dust sticks to it and it makes working on the car messy, two things that wouldn't matter for what your gonna use it for.

I used to hit the coin wash every time on the way home. That rinser setting blasts most anything away. $5-10 and 20 min...wouldn't have to worry about much mud falling off in the driveway at all.

Give your undercarriage a nice coat with WD-40 beforehand. I used to coat my quad down with it before taking it out. It worked good for me.

I figure if I let the mud stay in certain places long enough, those places will eventually rust through and no longer hold mud. I'm no scientist. I'm just letting evolution take its course. :D

because having a lifted truck and MTs thats does nothing but street driving is just soooooo cool! JFWY

Get used to it. I still have some mud caked in places. Invest in a pressure washer and an afternoon. EVen still you dont get all of it.

there's a whole lot more to wheelin than just mud. Trails and rocks are 100x more fun. Stuff that actually requires finesse instead of just pressing the skinny pedal down really hard.
