i usuellly wash the underbody after i go mudding and get all the muck out. i generally wait a couple days before i wash it tho. once the mud hardens it just flakes off when you wash it.

its probably wise to just wash it after you mud tho, it washes off easy and you wont risk any paint chips.

be careful with the soft top. It will stain if you leave the mud on too long.

ya get it off asap. don't let it sit. dried mud will also scratch paint. wd40 is a cool trick, spary underneath before mudding, mud won't stick.

Put a lawn sprinkler under the Jeep for half an hour before taking it to the pressure washer. The caked-on junk underneath will come off lots easier. I hate mud, personally, and look for any way to avoid it.

Not to mention what it does to bearings and alternators. Kind of like liquid sandpaper.

The cooking spray also works well in bug prone areas, use garlic cooking spray for that extra added flavor on the ones cooked on the 130W H4 headlights.

I'm not a mud type but I had to take the Jeep into deep mud late one night to help rescue two kids who buried their parents Jeeps rocker deep in mud and getting the mud off was a nightmare. Granted, it was a clay type of mud so it might have been more difficult than your local mud is. But we even went to the local coin-op carwash after we were done getting them out (1:30 am) and it didn't come off easily at all even with the high pressure sprayer, and that was with at least $10 each in time on the coin-op sprayer the kids we rescued paying for. The next day I turned the lawn sprinkler on to get the bottom of the Jeep and that didn't help much either, it was several days of work to finally get all that clay mud off. So if you wait long, you may find it has turned very hard very quickly and that you might have a very difficult job getting the last of the mud off.

I hate wheeling in deep mud and would never do it again willingly.
