Say what ya'll want, "I have cleaning OCD", 'its a truck", etc...but that dang mud was coming off of my truck. It was fun while it lasted, but it was time to get it to premud condition. For those of ya'll that dont know we had a wonderful trcuk meet on the OBX and it was a blast. See thread:

Well it was time to get the mud off. It couldnt be good for all the parts espacially since the engine was pretty much caked along with all susmension and brakes.

Two hours before:



the culprit:












The aftermath;









Front suspension:





Motor:





New wheels caked:



Then it came the fun part of getting mud off:



My front end was submerged, so you can imagine the mud that was in it:



Clean motor:





Bed off, the rearend was actually the worse, the spare tire was a bowl of mud:







Finally back together:







The last pic, an old man came up to and told me "young man, yu have the sharpest Ranger I have ever laid eyes on. Its so clean!" I told him he didnt see it the day before...lol.

Anyhowm the truck is cleaner now underneath than before the mud. That is the firstand last time i go in mud. I dont mind sand and snow, but mud sucks. If i go through mud again, it will be with a truck I dont owe 11 grand on and one that i can mess up and not worry about it. The truck is clean, but it not yet the way i want it. it was so hot yesterday, i got a few waterspots i have to get off. I also have to clean my interior as it smells like the ocean!

i wouldnt go that far as of taking the bed off or taking the lights out to clean, but if you take real good care of your truck, the truck takes real good care of you. lol

Holy crap!!! I have never seen anyone go that crazy with cleaning truck. I thought I was crazy about keeping my truck clean, but I don't even come close to you in that department. If you ever sell that thing, someone will be basically a brand new truck as clean as you keep that thing.
