    What is the best way to clean frame and undercarriage? What product is the best to use with minimal scrubbing? Part of me wants to use brake cleaner.

    Never tried it but don't see why it wouldn't work under a truck... at work we have a short spraygun for the power washer. Ours is old made by goodway but looks like the pic below, is around 10". Or you could cut a regular wand. Just wear saftey glasses and old clothes

    I like the small power washer "gun", but would still like a detergent. Frame still has stains from mud the dealer installed.

    Yeah kinda wished I thought of it years ago. The spray booth washes around here have cameras now and no mud is allowed. With this just pull in the back yard and clean it right up..messy but should work
