To clean or not to clean??

Went mudding yesterday and the Jeep is a BEAUTIFUL mess!!!! I have no desire whatsoever to clean it. Only thing that worries me is the dry grass stuck in the undercarriage, I don't need any fire hazards! Could this actually even start a fire?

I'd at least hose the underside off to keep the crud out of things.
I don't know about fires but your cat. can get pretty hot.

As far as the out side, ya keep it dirty.

X2 Hose off underneath but leave the body caked in mud! It's a badge of honor!!

x3 to a point..... Mud holds moisture, which will eventually lead to decay... But for a week or so, till you are sick of getting everything that goes near it filthy, you'll be fine

lol, had a blast, even while trying to figure out how to get out from being stuck! Buddy had to tie off to a telephone pole and then winch me out. The incline was so steep, it was dragging him towards the edge. Good times!!!! =]
