I invested in a powerwasher over the winter, just for these types of messes.
Roll it onto the rack, and blast away.

Not only do I need an alignment, I need new upper ball joints. I have em in hand, just havent had the shop time to get em on yet. Already replaced the lowers, inner and outer tie rods, and the ps swaybar mount on the frame. I align this truck like twice a month at school. But its kind of hard to get it all done in the couple hours a week I get in shop time.

You do, just gotta look for em. Out in CA you guys have more mountainous trails than muddy access roads. Down in the Ohio River valley, its all muddy roads and river bottoms.

Yeah theres tons of desert type stuff. I've actually only been in my Ranger twice. Always go with the pop with our F350 and toybox usually. Haha. I need to do some more work to my truck before i really take her out somewhere..
