Default south Carolina red mud

i love a clean truck...and i made the mistake of going mudding. i like to off road but i will stay away from the mud from now on. so my problem is the underside of my truck has a weird layer of mud or clay and it bothers my its on the underside of my engine and the transmission and on the engine. what is the best way to get the red mud off? i have tried simple green and scrubbing the underside and rinsing but its taking forever. any ideas?

A pressure washer might help out

i thought about that but will it hurt the engine by using such a strong stream of water?

X2. And I use my pressure washer religiously. Gotta try and blast it off before it bakes on real good.
