Washing the engine...

So, I've seen alot of pics of all of your trucks (not all but, you know) and their ridiculously clean engines. Anyways, mine's pretty damn dirty and I'm just wondering how you guys clean yours off...? I was thinking of just going down to the car wash and using their engine wash thing but, I figured it would get my air filter all wet and the fact that there's so many electrical connections over the engine concerns me too.

Use small (walmart) like plastic bags to cover all elec. boxes, alternator, air intake with a big clean rag stuffed in it and rubber band a plastic bag over it. You can use degreaser on tough spots. I have a container that fits on the end of my water hose I fill with car wash solution. Make sure the engine is cold and the ignition is not on during drying time. Do not start the engine until it is completely dry. You can remove the bags while wet and wipe clean any surface you covered.
