Anyone else here a nut about keeping thier undercarriage clean? How do you do it? The drive through carwash doesnt work for me. I need mine way cleaner.

a power washer should do the trick, even a regular hose with the muli spray handle should work.

I've heard of using a sprinkler under the truck for a half hour or an hour. Then spray it off with a hose. In theory it should work well, the sprinkler would loosen up the caked on stuff well then you could spray it off.

I can get the caked on stuff easy enough, but theres still a dirt residue. I'm thinkin about just gettin a lot of degreaser and doin it a section at a time

just use some car soap, idk wat kind of effect (if any) a degreaser would have on some of the rubber hoses and lines.

Maybe I'll just have to hand-wash it. I normally wouldn't go that far, but I found myself stuck in some mud the other day and it really did a number down there. Having a clean undercarriage makes me feel better for some reason. Also I don't want to void my warranty when the shop sees mud everywhere down there. But it's mostly just for my peace of mind.

Don't spend a lot of time on it.. i mean no one can really see it and it's just gonna get dirty again after 30 miles. just my 2 cents tho.

You might want to try a lemon spray on furniture polish like pledge or DG prinate label. I use it everywhere. underhood, whel wells...once you get heavy dirt off, spray on liberally, wait a fgew minutes and wipe off with clean cloth

Hope it works for you
