I think it depends on how thoroughly you are going to wash it.

I keep mine looking pretty good by going to the DIY carwash after any offroading. I leave the engine running, being sure to put the deck plate cover on, and have at it. I avoid spraying directly on the alternator but other than that, not particularly cautious.

Its not like you have a distributor with points in it or a carburetor.
