    Generally speaking, having the largest tires and lowest ride height can prove to be a very effective offroad combo (as long as you have clearance and travel). TYPICALLY.

    make sure you spray your engine intake with lysol or fabreze so your exhaust smells lovely :D

    Edit:

    Oh lawdy I replied to your clean post before scrolling 2 posts :eek:
    As a fellow black vehicle owner I feel your pain.

    I use that Turtle Wax Hybrid Ceramic coat stuff as well. Really like that product! Now Aerospace 303 has a ceramic spray of some kind... might give that a try next after I use up all my TurtleWax.

    I really like it, and it goes on fast and easy. I know it's not a "true ceramic" but for what it does I'm happy.

    New summer skins chalked in and a pressure wash. Couple of folks at the scrapyard across from the big empty lot where I did the chalking watched me like I was juggling burning chainsaws.

    Ozone is awesome for smells and sanitation. I use aqueous ozone on everything. Aqueous ozone generators are fairly cheap.

    My daughter dropped whole milk hot chocolate all over my wife's car. Only thing that destroyed the small was ozone water.

    First hand wash of 2021. So much better than the touchless I've been going to all winter. Spray Wax from last fall is still beading nicely.

    Added dirt bike / mini bike carrier mod. Will be nice to start bringing them camping. Need to add some strength to it for my driving style but overall pretty happy with it. Got it from Northern Tool. When the high clearance rear gets back from powder coat the ramp might be a little too steep and need a little modification as well.. o_O
