    So I took my taco out the other night and I was mudding her
    And I didn't realize it was clay mud..
    And now it's alllll over my engine bay and all up under my truck..
    The truck is still farly new.. Only 550 miles on it.. And I want to keep it looking somewhat new
    What are you guys using to clean and protect your engine bay and up under your trucks?
    What will get this cement like clay off?
    (I took it to a car wash and used the power washer they have there but thT didn't seem to do much for under the truck)
    Thanks

    I use simple green too, find it works pretty good. They have a heavy degreaser that I usually use under the hood.
