Yeah, I've been getting that, but guess what?- there is no more mud on my truck! I even went through automatic handsfree wash yesterday after work and then hand washed it at home and then claybarred the hood because when i was presure washing it i got bad waterspots. no more waterspots and a fresh coat of wax on the hood. I'll take and wax the rest later

yep, lesson learned. Dont get me wrong, the mud was fun and I'd do it again---just not in this truck. It would have to be in a truck i could not care about and didnt drive on a daily basis

That was the whole effing reason i bought the truck, so that i wouldnt have to deal with problems so soon. First the TPS sensor, now this! Ill be making a seperate thread for this!
3,000 out of warranty that sucks you could have had it done for free

I highly doubt the mud had anything to do with the oil leak.

I could never justify spending that much time just cleaning my truck. But I admire your dedication and care for something you work hard to pay for. My fiance would kill me if I spent that much time on it tho. Hell I haven't had time to clean it since like Christmas. It drive me crazy, but I have other priorities at this point.

same here it's impossible and my long *** driveway is all sand, clay, soft dirt, and alittle gravel. so lol when it rains yea which is every week pretty much there is no point in cleaning it like this but i clean it kinda like this but not taking everything off in the winter. i use a hot water pressure washer to get all the salt and ice off.
