CarolinaBound Self service car wash right after, hit everything on the undercarraige where ever the nozzle fits. Stick it in the holes in the frame an hold it there, stuff will pour out (ctually had a chunk of rust attach me this saturday) If ya have any time left give the body a good initial rinse to get the big stuff off and engine bay too, avoid the distributors, electronics, etc (basically don't be stupid). Once you're home lay a sprinker under there for 20 minutes-ish for the front and back. Stuff will still come off.

Madden Mudding is fun no doubt, but you'll be finding mud on your Jeep in places that you didn't even know could get muddy months afterwards.

JeepandMud Here in Colorado we have both. Mud and rocks. I love the mud but always make sure I clean it right afterwards. Somehow it doesn't stick as much as I've seen other jeeps. Luckily we don't have the red clay thatI've heard can take literally days to clean. And I make sure I don't go into mud that's up to the bottom of the tub.

Huelsmma Went on my first offroading excursion today and it was def muddy trails due to the downpours we had last night. Leader of the pack in his YJ showed us where not to go lol Power washed my jeep for over an hour I bet.

Shark_13 Lol...mud is fun...but it is messy....
Like many things in life

Jeepzjlover Agreed I use to love it when I was younger and don't get me wrong its still fun to see if you can make it but it wears down everything, causes horrible rust, falls in your face, and takes forever to clean up if you can get all of it. The way I look at it nothing off road is good for these things mud wears things down as does sand, rocks are fun but they break things but still clean to repair, and snow well it doesn't hurt much til it turns into ice. All in all you wheel what you have in your area or travel to what you ain't got around either way enjoy it this is our passion.

XDR I would agree.. Only mud my TJ goes in is a wet trail after it has rained.

I found at least 100 lbs. of mud on my garage floor when I backed the Jeep out later.

Never again.
Mud is the devil..
