Tips for Washing Off-Road Vehicles from Sunset Trucks in Puyallup!

For those who love taking their lifted trucks off the beaten path as much as we do, here are some tips for washing off-road vehicles!

Truck owners know, the only thing more fun than buying a lifted-truck is getting it dirty! At one point or another, you’ll need to wash your lifted truck for maintenance and safety reasons. With that in mind, here are some tips for washing off-road vehicles from your trusted truck dealership near Tacoma at Sunset Trucks in Puyallup!

Dust and dirt can certainly permeate every corner of your lifted truck. But add water and mud to the mix and you’ve got clumps of mud and slop that can cling to the underside of your beloved vehicle. Of course, the drive home helps remove a good bit of dirt and mud, but nothing beats an old-fashioned car wash to remove the dirt and grime that builds underneath your lifted truck. Perhaps, the part that’s subjected the most to harmful elements are your wheels and brake components. A simple removal and water hosing will go a long way in sustaining the life of your brakes. From there, check and clean the undercarriage to remove any build up, along with the wheel wells and drivetrain components.

If there’s any sign of leaking oil or fluids, there’s a good chance dirt and mud is getting inside your vehicle as well. Our staff at Sunset Trucks in Puyallup, WA would love to visit with you if you have any questions regarding the care and maintenance of your lifted truck.
