Truck washing tips

With all the snow, sand, and salt on the roads anyone have any vehicle washing tips. I like to put a sprinkler under my truck for a couple hours, after it warms up of course.

I started putting the sprinkler under my truck years ago after wheeling in the mud/sand. I use to pressure wash, and a wise old man told me to put a sprinkler under it after I pressure washed it. I was amazed at what fell off in the driveway.
