Um I don't. I'm majoring in automotive and our shop has one I use. You could just try pressure washing under it ans see if that does the trick and then there is also good old elbow grease. I cleaned they entire front underneath myself with a rag and multiple bottles of brake clean with a steel brush.

Changed the front axle seals today. Flat Rate said it should take 4 1/2 hours. I did it in 1 1/2. So now I've changd the diff fluid tiwce in the last 2 weeks. Friday I have to work on my right side upper control arm bushing. It didn't seat right so it popped out.

Also Friday starts the 400 mile trip home for spring break. I can't wait.

Had an absolutely amazing time wheeling! By far the best trip yet. My Jeep handled everything without a problem at all. Almost flipped it while flexing. I took over 250 photos but I picked out a few.

Your lucky you go to a school that allows you to work on your stuff. I go to Ohio technical college in Cleveland Ohio and they refuse to let us student work in our jeep, trucks or cars. Like im driving mt summer car and i lost my pressure plate and i had to have a shop do the clutch cause my college said they are not a repair facility .

Btw your jeep looks great im very paranoid about keeping mine clean as well if im not on the trail.

It's threads like this one that make me wish I'd gone to automotive school with my friend. We had plans to open our own shop one day, he went to Wyo Tech and is now a mechanic. I instead went to college and work in the IT field make less than half of what he makes. Some days life sucks!!

Bad *** Jeep though man!! I'm digging this thread.
