    thanks bronco. and yeah josh ive been looking at $500 jeeps, explorers, and broncos. i only went 3 times with my truck but there is mud still caked in my engine bay and filling every hollow frame rail in my truck. i went a little overboard my first time, i went through the kinda deep mud hole in the first few videos about 6 times and it was mud,water,sand, and clay all mixed together. plus i didnt have my lower fan shroud or any of the plastic front wheel well pieces because of the bodylift

    the mud felt like pudding and about 2 inches thick covering the engine bay

    Nice!!

    Having the fan shroud and fenderwheels installed would help a lot with that. For the frame just rinse it out.
