best way to get dried up mud out from under your jeep?
Hello all! This past summer I had a blast taking my jeep off road. Did some light trails and a few mud pits. I would always.pressure wash everything including underneath the day after. Today I had it on my lift at work and noticed everything is coated in dried up mud. Any clue on how to clean it up? I tried soap and water didnt work. Would engine degreasger be a bad idea for underneath?
Get after it while its fresh. Ga, Ks, Mo, Ok, Ar, red mud is like cement when it dries. Some jeepers buy WD40 in the Gl can with a pump sprayer and coat the underneath once a year so that mud is easier to remove.
As you mentioned, a car wash or pressure sprayer works well as long as its directed at the problem spots.
one of the trails that used to be open near me had a 30 foot up stream water crossing... we always did that last That trail is close now cause punk college kids would go out there get drunk and trash the area
Other than using a stiff brush (non-wire) and water/detergent/etc, cleaning ALL the mud/dirt may be futile.
I have used a product called Fluid-Film, a lanolin (sheep-fat) base product that acts as a barrier film. It works best if applied annually for a couple years, then touched-up as needed... mostly as an anti-rust treatment. Surprising, it was developed in the mid-1940's. Yes, its gel-like film can attract and hold dirt, but it can be washed-off easily, and creeps into minute spaces, hopefully to keep further dirt and corrosion from occurring. And, it works best if applied before the underside gets crapped-up.
