IMO a clean jeep is a dirty jeep and a dirty jeep is a clean jeep. Although a dirty underside on the jeep is a jeep waiting to break, so I usually hit up a Fire Dept to use their hose or a do it urself car wash to spray off the underside.

Mud on the body is okay (to each his own) but dried mud on the suspension, wheels and brakes is definitely not. If I don't feel like washing it immediately after playing in the goo, I park it over the lawn sprinkler to get the mud off the important parts.

I take mine in to the self serve usually the next day if I don't have anything to do. Otherwise it's usually picture time right after the mud trail, then off to the car wash. My fiance tries to get me to wash it more frequently, but since it's going to be parked till next June, I can from time to time get him to take it over so I can wash it . Don't like going more than 2 days without washing it especially if it's really muddy. Harder to clean and more quarters

usually takes me about a week to get around to wash the mud off.
That's how I am right now. Had Jamboree last weekend, but it's been too cold and I've been too busy to get out there and wash it. Supposed to be 75 on Saturday, 77 on Sunday, so it'll get cleaned up with the pressure washer first, then washed this weekend.
I always at least clean the undercarriage after a few days. When I do wash the body I spray off the majority and then take it through an auto car wash. The soft top has no issues with the water spraying but I always wait until those huge dryers shut off before pulling out.
I wash it as soon as I get close to home... Theres no way to get to my house with out passing the carwash with the high pressure nozzles. It pisses the manager there off but Ive told him 10-15 times, mud will wash away over time. I do like the sprinkler idea... I may steal that next wash.
