November 23, 2004I spend like 8 hours detailing my truck. I did the clay bar and the 9. Then I went offroading less than 18 hours later.

January 13, 2005never thought about using a sprinkler! thats why i love these sites so much......you learn something new everyday!
January 13, 2005I take mine to the do it yourself ...but i use the diesel truck wash bay, it has higher pressure and HOT water! works awesome ...end up spendin' about 10 dollars
January 13, 2005Yeah, I've cleaned my truck off in town once, drove home, said what the heck, and hit a mudhole, it had only been clean for like 10 min.
I get to a point where i just dont care anymore and besides, itll get dirty real soon again anyway becuase of where i live and what i do, b/c our family owns a family, so i dont bother too much, but when i do, i just jack the front end of my truck up and use a pressure washer to clean it all off and call it good

i don't have a gallery here yet, soon will, but heres the link to my gallery at f150online.com
i hope it works
January 17, 2005on average, i'd say it takes me 6 hours (mostly spent underneath it) with the pressure washer to get it all off my bronco 2 after a run a the local hole. But, asides from the tree and rock rash on the sheetmetal and what not, you'd never know it had ever been offroad when i'm done. A springkler placed underneath it for a couple hours is also a good, easy way to remove a lot of mud, but some mud types require the pressure washer and diligent work.
I just like to have mine extremely clean, cause you never know when your gonna be under it working on it.
January 18, 2005I may be wrong, but a muddy 4x4 looks a heck of a lot better than a clean one any day. All I can think of when I see these 4x4 beemers and volvos and all the other yuppie cars is "WHAT A WASTE". I mean, why pay all that extra money for 4x4 and then never use it. I guess if you got the money then its no big deal to just blow it like that.
The only reason I would think about washing my truck is so that I can work under it like bogger said.
Theres my 2 cents!!
January 18, 2005I spent a week and about 15 bucks washin the underside of my truck before I had to work on it and it was still muddy. glasses are an essential tool when workin on my truck or I keep gettin dry dirt in my eyes. bleh!!!!
January 18, 2005When we say sprinkler??? we talking bout the PF PF PF, PFFFFFFFFT.. ones? the ones that go back and forth? or the ones that kids used to run in thats shoot the water up vertically???? pressure washer ??? nice? i can grab a few.... and what do u guys use to clean the engine bay???? cuz i wouldnt want to soak it or shoot water at it too hard.... and if u pressure wash the outside? u guys dun stand to close do u? cuz wouldnt it take off some paint?
January 18, 2005The only time mine gets washed is when I want to get the salt off it to prevent rust, or after a good rain, and maybe twice a year to wax it. I think my truck looks better muddy, nothing worse than a cool jacked up truck that looks like the guy is afraid to take it off pavement!!
January 18, 2005by sprinkler, i mean the ones with that just go left and right. they have a little pressure to them to chew at it a little, plus they supply quite a bit of water. If nothing else, they work good to loosen stuff for the pressure washer.
