    That sucks. Have dealt with stuff like that before. Now I have a surveillance cam (or cams) prominently displayed on every house my family owns. Have caught several porch pirates on "tape" and then decided to put up alarm signs and a little red arrow pointing to the camera and nothing has been "disappeared" since

    Yes, long overdue. I make it a point to rinse every couple of months but usually use soap only once a year.

    I was going to toss the rear Icon 2.0 Aluminum series shocks on since even I can deal with a jack, jack stands and 4 bolts but decided I didn't like the shafts all uncovered like that so ordered two of the shock boot kits early this morning soooo...few more days to wait to do that.

    I don’t think the 99’s seen a car wash or garden hose since I moved to Logan, over a year and a half ago.

    And I admit it's not covered in mud or crap because I offroad... It's a daily and a work truck and I don't drive on much dirt
    But if I was in college.... I kept my shiz clean back in the day, only way to get chicks in a topless FJ40, at least had to be clean:cool::rofl:

    This is the best pic I have on hand.. it took multiple passes to get the driver foot well area cleaner, but definitely made a notable difference. First vacuumed it good, then used a drill brush and stain remover vigorously, then hit many times with the steam cleaner filled with stain remover and more brushing in between rounds. The seats were from the salvage yard and where also cleaned using the same method, I found the steam cleaner was the tool that made the most drastic difference that you can see!
    20200218_091458.jpg

    Here was the "before" shot - you can see how dark it was with grime around the area that was not covered by the floor mat. The floor mat was missing so it started getting grimy all around the foot mat pretty badly too, so this was a tough zone in my truck as well.
    20200208_133416.jpg

    The red stains towards the rear center of the tranny tunnel were the part that I could not really remove totally. No idea what that was, as all these stains came with the truck.

    This infomercial shot shows how well the steam cleaner changes the color from decades of dirt brown back to showroom 2002 Charcoal Gray. ACT NOW!

    I really was super impressed by this thing as this was my first run with it, and didnt even return it to the Amazon! I found myself wishing I bought a bigger one though, as I refilled the tank many times throughout the day.

    This was all in the past though..

    TODAY I actually cleaned my K&N air filter that also came with the truck. Regained my full 6.19 horsepower increase as noted by the feeling in my mind!!

    Haven't hit mine yet, but it's harder to hit when it's raised above the frame rails. :cool:
