Whether it be for aesthetics, or for maintenance, it is always nice to keep the underside of your ride clean. Rust can be greatly accelerated with the accumulation of winter salt, unchecked grease and oil, and everyones favorite MUD. But is super easy to get it clean and you stay dry while doing this. All you have to do is attach a fan sprayer to the end of your water hose and stick it under your ride. I am not sure if that is the correct name for the sprayer, but it is the one that pivots from side to side for your lawn. It comes out as a bunch of really strong jets. By the time your finish your beer, your underside is clean. It is even better if you can attach the water hose to your hot water heater. Next time you have to do any work under your bronc, you will be VERY glad that you did this!! You will find that it is much easier to identify any new leaks or any problems that need to be adressed. You will be much cleaner as well. Aslo a great cleaner that is cheap is Mean Green. It eats right through oil and grease within seconds. A big bottle of it is a dollar and you can find it at the dollar store.

washer fluid works too, but when you find that you are not strapped for time try my method. You'll like!

Kinda simple and easier than attaching the hose to the water heater( :scratchhe dude WTF?:scratchhe ).........use some oven cleaner. With the engine warm...NOT HOT....spray a little on some of your greasy chit and wait couple minutes. Spray with regular hose and h2o and it will literally drip right off. Don't do it in the drive way......obvious reason..

Yeah, I have tried oven cleaner and yes it does work. But, since my hot water heater is in the garage, it is easy to hook it up. Like I said though it is not neccesary to hook it to the hot water heater, just nice if you are able to. Also with the fan sprayer, and or Mean Green it is something that you CAN do in your driveway without worrying about the pollutants of oven cleaner.

Swampwalker do you know Doug Foster, or Mark Robertson? I used to work at Hogtown Herp years ago when I was a kid. I am back in Gainesville now.
