    heres a very cool trick that i came up with works pretty quick and efficiently.

    take a 10 foot peice of pvc pipe and cap the hose 1,2 inch pvc works great,cap the end make it really tight, drill many many tiny holes all throughout the pvc. feed the pipe over your axle and under the engine run a hose through it for about 5 to ten minutes then your done clean as a whistle works great for those hard to reach places. if you really want to get technical make holes in the pipe that will fit right behind the wheels and this will get the gunk out of the brakes and boots etc. sorry no pics no camera ask me if you have any questions.

    another good trick is to spray a ton of armor all or tire shine on the under side of the truck before wheeling.... the mud will run right off when you wash truck off

    You see, the trick here is to do this on your lawn. Just add a little fertilizer on the grass before hand and walla, you will have a nice green lawn & have a clean truck too.....;)
