Power washer?

Looking for a home power washer to clean up the Jeep after the weekends. I want something fairly cheap but I want it to have good washing power to get that thick mud off.

Every time I go to the local wash bay I spend at least $20 getting it clean again. I can defiantly save me some dough for other mods if I get a washer.
I know there are so many brands and motors out there. I dont want junk!

What are you using and what do you guys recommend.

I use a home lite powered by a Honda engine. I think 2500 PSI. Purchased from home depot and works great. Cost around $379.

Plus that 1 year no questions asked return policy.

Same one, it was a busy engine this past summer around the house and some volunteer projects - been flawless, only complaint is that it needs a larger gas tank.

I use a Karcher electric at 1800 psi. For stuff around the home or cleaning non-commercial vehicles, it is perfect and doesn't need to have the fuel tank constantly refueled. It is well below the pressure at which power washers can/will damage paint.
