It's sad but I have done it once, got under there with a long handled brush and a 5 gal. bucket of suds, I looked like a coal miner when done. Power sprayer would be the way to go if you have one of those. I wash the wheel wells and exposed frame rails quite often but the road funk takes it's toll over time.

what do you guys use to clean off the dried dirt stains (if thats the right word), my usual wash mitts require a lot of scrubbing but not sure i wanna go to something heavier duty.

Foam cannon followed by 2 hand washes. Can use a quick detailer on stubborn areas after. If they are still there, clay bar and re-wax.

Simple green. Dilute 50/50 and use a spray bottle or use the fluid vacuum attachment on a pressure washer, use a scotch brite type scrub pad (on metal bits only).

If they become super problematic you take a grinder to it and apply some flat black rattle can.

And then apply fluid film or your protectant of choice.

As for the original question I just get under neath it, use one of those rolling pressure washer attachments or park over a sprinkler.
