Spraying underneath with...

So, I'm sorry if I'm beating a dead horse here....before getting into mud....what is everyone using to spray underneath as an aid for mud removal later?

I've seen cooking spray and baby oil...

I'm concerned about an oily residue build up, maybe ur cleaning with a degreaser after.

But what is the best precautionary product u use to help get that mud off before u go?

Im sure there are things you can spray to help reduce the initial amount of mud sticking to the underside but ultimately its mud so.........yeah itll just cake up. I would just do a thorough and safe cleaning with a pressure washer afterwards to get it all off. As long as the mud isnt there for a long time (like a few weeks or something) than it should come off easily.

A sprinkler underneath for about 15-20 minutes will help loosing up the mud and make it easier to pressure wash and sometimes even get the mud off pretty good.

Yeah, mud is mud. Don't think theres a magic bottle of anything (although it would ne nice) to keep it from sticking to the under carriage. Consider this, mud stains wont just rinse off your hood and its a finished surface with a clear coat seal, so it definitely will not just rinse from underneath. Most parts underneath are porous so it just sticks and sticks. Best solution I have found is the Blech White amd a pressure washer. I am like you, I want my rig to be as clean as possible, and as fun as mud is its a booger to clean, not to mention various mechanical issues it can cause.

I do the pressure wash and sprinkler thing. I send my kids under with sponges to get off caked mud...those dang exhaust pipes get so hot the mud turns to cement immediately, lol. I play a lil game called, find the mud...super fun, sorta.

I've just seen a few folks talk about giving a treatment under that helps.

I havn't tried it on the Jeep yet but I used to spray Formula 2001 or Armor All on my four wheeler fenders after washing and it seemed to help release the mud after next ride.
