Undercarriage Cleaning

With all the dirt and mud that accumulates on a Jeep's underside from wheeling
I like to occasionally get under there with a high pressure washer and clean it out the best I can. In researching cleaners, I ran across this stuff called Bare Bones Undercarriage Spray and Detailer and was wondering if anyone has ever tried it. Apparently, it is good for other parts as well, like bumpers, wheel wells and other plastic items.

Chemical Guys TVD_104 - Bare Bones Undercarriage Spray (1 Gal)

Any reports on the stuff, or alternatives, would be appreciated.

take a lawn sprinkler and slid it under your rig and let it run for awhile so it presoaks and helps loosen up the mud, then hit it with your washer and use a leaf blower , repeat until satisfied with your clean up then use the blower again to help dry it out..,,

if you look at my avatar im no stranger to mud and i dont even try, most of the time i try and avoid it,,,,----but it,s hard not to get it this way around here this time of year.

this works for me and take note on weather conditions in your area i dont do it if we are below freezing and let it set awhile your brakes will freeze up,,-best time is rite before a good rain then drive around then do the sprinkler and blower..

I use a power washer too, and something very useful is to make a second sprayer gun with no extension wand for tight areas.

Now when I do the undercarriage I can get pretty much anywhere as the nozzle it only about 8 inches from the trigger.

Northern tool has all of the pieces you need to make one.

I think this should work pretty well, too:

16" Undercarriage Cleaner, 4000 PSI - Amazon.com

Actually I planned on using an extension I have bending the tubing at about the same angle and tack welding an axle with 2 small wheels to it so it will point upward and I can roll it around under the jeep so I dant have to crawl around under with it.
