Milk jugs are off!!

Just took off my Bumper Jugs. Wow! Such a small little thing, but what a difference. Also, I discovered about 400lbs of mud, dirt, and better tire clearance. Can't believe all the junk that was still trapped there. Anyone have any other secret hiding places for mud?

This is not a Jeep story, but I spent 26 days working on the Gulf coast immediately after Katrina hit, and was mostly in Mississippi. I was driving a Ford F250 4WD that I literally sank in what looked like gray sea mud that had been slathered up on land by Katrina (about ten miles inland). Anyway, we winched the truck out, and once we got back to Georgia we cleaned the truck up.

I had some electrical problems a bit later, and the shop called me to come get the truck. Piled in the floor of the shop was what looked like a gray statue of dried mud that the mechanic had to chisel out of the void between the front bumper and the skid plates/front valance. On top of this heap was a dead bird that had been lodged up in there with all the mud. It was pretty nasty, and he was pretty upset...

go the the manual car washes with the power washers... This gets mud out nicely especially from hard to reach places.

Whenever I get back from a muddy trail run I do two things to get the mud from the undercarriage.

1. Run the hose through the frame rail via several available holes and just let it soak and push the mud out. Move it to different holes as needed.

2. Set two water sprinklers (the old fan type) under the Jeep front and rear...and just leave 'em on for awhile. Move 'em around as needed.

Most if not all of the mud is broken up and either falls off or gets washed out. If the mud is to dry and caked on it may take awhile...or not at all.
