The How-To Guide of Cleaning Your Jeep After an Off-Roading Trip

The How-To Guide of Cleaning Your Jeep After an Off-Roading Trip

Your Jeep is one of your most prized possessions. It takes you to places you’d never dream of going in a regular vehicle. No matter where your off-roading adventures take you, you’ll inevitably return home with visible reminders of your journey. Whether your Jeep Wrangler TJ carpet gets caked in mud or your windshield gets splattered with the remains of insects, this how-to guide can help you clean away the evidence of your latest off-roading excursion.

Wash Your Vehicle Immediately

If you’re tired, washing your vehicle after an off-roading trip may be the last thing you want to do. Plus, a mud-caked Jeep is a great reminder of the good times you just had. However, mud and debris can damage your components and wheels if they’re left on your Jeep too long. It’s best to wash them off within 24 hours, if possible.

Use High Pressure

Most drive-through car washes don’t have enough pressure to thoroughly clean off mud and debris. You’ll have better results if you use a pressure washer or go to a DIY car wash (the kind that takes coins). DYI car washes typically operate with a higher pressure than a standard hose or drive-through wash. They also make it easy to customize your washing experience. If you don’t get all the mud off within the allotted time, just add more coins to extend your washing session.


Don’t Forget the Underside

It’s easy to forget the underside of your car and the hood when you’re cleaning after an off-roading trip. However, dirt and mud has a way of sneaking into every crack and cranny. If stubborn mud won’t come off the bottom of your vehicle, try putting a sprinkler underneath it and going about your business. Come back in an hour or two and most of the mud should be gone.
