I've always parked over a lawn sprinkler for about an hour or so before I run it through the car wash. This has worked wonders for me over the years. It doesn't get everything clean, but it saves a ton of labor at the car wash. Just let the sprinkler do all the work and move it around a few times to ensure it gets the whole underside.

Local mikes Carwash hates me and my buddies, after we go wheelin we go strait there and pressure wash everything we can get to, always wash from the top down, I've forgot the roof a few times and then you have to wash it all over cause mud runs down the sides, in the summer when I detail it I get a few cans of black clear coat spray paint and go over everything under the body, wheel wells, frame, suspension, spare tire, literally everything I can see, I also use it to go over my roll in bed liner keeps it looking sharp, and I have yet to find any rust living in Indiana with an 18 year old truck, I'm sure it's somewhere but I haven't found it apart from my exhaust/cats which I'm pretty sure most vehicles have... One problem I have is mud always comes out from under my tail lights and I can't get them out to wash back there, I also like to shine up my tires and wheels even when it's muddy, a muddy truck with shiny shoes looks sick IMO
