Cleaning Frame

What do you guys..lifted or not...use to clean the undercarriage? Only way to get it nice and clean is to actually wipe it down it seems, and thats a PITA.

Need something to spray on the frame, leafs, and such then rinse off...I am lazy and its too hot outside to be wiping down the u bolts.

I just put a sprinkler under the truck overnight. Seems to get it pretty damn clean.

If you need to get mud off then I just spray it with pressure washer. But if it's already clean and your looking for the bling effect then just spray it with tire shine

What about WD-40? That will clean anything, but don't ask me how to get the WD-40 off

But seriously, a high pressure hot water washer, and I mean HOT

wD40 does work well but it will colect dirt like a mother, i would use tire shine, the stuff that doesnt collect dirt, hot water makes the biggest difference, i wash my truck at the shop because the water is damn near steam when it comes out, makes everything, including the tires look like they are new.

Also what might work well is if you can hook your sprinkler up to your hot water heater some how and crank the hot water heater up... my dad's shop has a thread on outlet on the hot water side, thats what i use to wash stuff with his pressure washer...

I know how to clean the truck...I guess most are not visualizing what I mean....theres a difference in clean and CLEAN...even when you spray it off good it wont be CLEAN..you can rub your hand across it and it will be CLEAN...sorta like drying off the truck vs not drying it off.

I was hoping that someone knew of a trick where you can spray a certain something on it and help clean it...I will try painted wheel cleaner, that might work.
Simple Green dont really do the trick.

Thanks

I would try some good marine grade cleaner, I have a bottle of boat spot remover that works great on the trailer but I can't remember the brand name.

What I do is take some Simple green or Purple Power depending on how dirty the frame it either use straight or 1:1 mix... Then Spray it all over, I mean soak it... Then Take your hose or pressure washer and on a strong setting spray it all off... After that I ALWAYS take some cheap tire spray and spray the whole damn frame and under carriage with it, and my frame and under body it SEXY!

Another tip: If Your front, rear axle, and drive shaft have some rust... before you do all of this I would take some Rustoleum Semi Gloss Black Enamel and spray em down, let dry for a couple days, and then do the wash technique!
