    Newbie question :p

    I think I'm just really paranoid but I had to ask this question.
    I took off both of my skid plates. It's pretty sandy and grimey everywhere. Will it be alright to run my truck through a carwash without the skid plates on? I know everything gets wet during rain etc. but wasn't sure about the pressure washers in the car wash.
