lol, i hate when you wash your truck only to find more mud somewhere else. i know my problem is that i took out all my fender linings, so the mud comes of the tire right up into the bed near the taillights, ive taken out the light and clean, but does not good, next time out wheelin, its all back in there.

Yep does it ALL the time to me. I've taken the pressure washer and a water hose to blast it from all different angles. Sometimes works. You need more than 1 person doin it.
