Radiator Question

Any tip in How to avoid Mud to get in to the radiator cells? or what to do to minimize that???
As today what we do is drive to the closer car wash and pressure wash the radiator but if there is no carwash close the Jeep's starts to over heat.
Mud is something that you have to go thru if you wheel in FL.
Thanks.

Umm, the cooling fan pulls air through the radiator it does not push
