I remember how nervous I was the first time I washed down my engine bay. would have thought I was defusing a bomb or something.

Once you've taken a jeep through mud puddles where the water line comes up to just below the air intake ( at wich point the enging is pretty much submerged) you realize a little hosing won't hurt it.

all the advice I've read here won't steer you wrong

Is this ok for the paint

Wax it whatever.

We have guys at our car washes watching, I think they even carry guns.dont people get pi$$ed when you spend that long

Has yours been done this year yet? If you haven't and don't have a power washer, You can come over and use mine. It'* 3500 psi commercial grade ( a little too powefull) which can be regulated and I have a compressor which you can blow dry off. You can come this weekend on the way home if you like. I even have a couple of cans of degreaser.
