    Hello so I went mudding 3 months ago and took my tuck through a basic car wash with the undercarriage wash. I don't think it was good enough because there's still a sand like dirt all over and I think on the inside of the frame. How should I go about washing/draining the frame? Thanks

    Immediately after finishing your mud mashing, sand sailing, and dirt darting - you wash it off with low pressure high volume water flow. Generally a round type flow works well.

    After 3 months, do that for a while trying to direct water flow to everything as the force of flow will carry the stuff loosened by the chemical action of the water. Use some simple green (or simple yellow, or simple blue) to help.
