Our team at Sunset Trucks in Puyallup, Washington offers these helpful tips for detailing your lifted truck and off-road vehicle!

Even though it might defeat the purpose of driving a lifted truck near Seattle, your beloved vehicle deserves detailing every once in awhile. And with the snowfall and heavy rain here in the Pacific Northwest, it’s not only for cleaning sake, but for safety reasons too that you should consider cleaning your lifted truck! Sunset Trucks is your go-to truck dealership near Seattle for sales, service and financing. With that, check out these detailing tips for off-road vehicles.

For both aesthetic and mechanical maintenance reasons, it’s critical to clean your lifted truck from time to time. And even though your friends might make fun of you for washing your lifted truck, doing so will allow you to inspect your truck or off-road vehicle and ensure it’s in proper driving condition. First, give it a good, old-fashioned cleaning with vehicle-approved soap and water, including hosing down and cleaning the undercarriage and fenderwells. Another place you’ll want to ensure you give a good spray and cleaning is near the wheels and brake components to remove any mud or sand. Other areas to examine and clean are air filters and cabin filters, which easily collect dust from the trails.

Cleaning your lifted truck not only helps sustain the life of your beloved truck's’ paint job but allows you to keep an eye on the undercarriage and fenderwells to examine any potentially damaged parts. Sunset Trucks near Seattle is your premier dealership for custom lifted trucks and service. Contact our team with any questions you might have as you’re detailing your off-road vehicle.
