Jeep ain't gonna clean itself

I've noticed that some people drive their jeeps in extreme conditions.
When they go deep into mud, however, I wonder if the mud/dirt doesn't splash (or seep in big volumes) into the interiors (seats/mats/electricals) and spoil it?

Is there a way to avoid this or do we just need to do the cleaning? If cleaning, then it surely sounds like a pain! How would you do it?

I let mother nature take care of that for me. If its really bad go to one of those self serve car washes.

Here's one way that works, but sometimes it takes multiple passes to get it as clean as you desire.

1. Get a snorkel kit.
2. Find a clean body of water that is about 4.5 - 5 feet deep.
3. Drive into body of water.
4. Exit water.
5. Repeat steps 3 - 4 as required, until desired results are achieved. (or until you peg your fun meter).

I think my work here is done.

Good Luck.

Well I haven't done this in a jeep yet but in my Tacoma I have taken all the interior carpet out and put a spray in bedliner in and neoprene set covers (fitted) to cut down on the mold/mildew so I figure it would work the same way for your jeep just leave some drain holes in the floor for drainage of the water
