Washing UNDER your Jeep

After a day on the trails I typically wash my Jeep...and do my best to get the stuff under the Jeep.

Then the next morning I usually see a bunch of sand and dirty in the driveway. It gets EVERYWHERE and you simply can't see it without crawling under your vehicle...right?

Spent $6 at Home Depot and now I can get all that sand and dirt UNDER the Jeep washed out in about 15-20 minutes.

AWESOME idea. I washed the holy heck out of the underside with a power washer today, but from the sides, back and front. I am sure there is still plenty down there. I might have to try this tomorrow!!!!

Good way to keep the lower body and the frame from rusting. Salts accumulate underneath.

Hahaha, I've had one of those sprinklers sitting unused in the garage for years and never thought of this.

2010 Wrangler JK, living in NVA, I usually wash the under carriage after each snow storm. Usually a few days after the roads are clear of the salt & dirt. I do this to all 3 vehicles we have.
