    Can someone please enlighten me as to how best remove NJ Pine Barrens "mud" ?
    It has the light grey color, consistency, and tenacity of concrete powder.
    It washes from the waxed or ceramic-coated painted surfaces okay.
    But plastic trim and raw engine bay plastic get stained for a while.
    I use a variety of sudsy car soaps.
    Thanks !

    I have never found a way to get it off, other than it wears off after a while. The red Pocono mud is the same way, it's like paint once it gets ground in a little.

    power washer with deionized water. Use some shinesupply classy chassis underneath. trim shine on the trim.

    If you think pinebarrens mud is bad, you'll be mortified when you see what baja mud can do.

    I am mortified to learn that Baja has mud at all !

    I thought it was a sandy desert.

    Thanks, everyone.
    I will just ceramic coat as much of the affected plastic as possible.

    The grill and shutters will come out to install my incoming S8 light bar,
    and that will give me an opportunity to clean and ceramic coat those items.

    I will also get into the engine bay at some point.

    its like sandy, chunky peanut butter. It legit will etch your paint and ruin whatever wrap you might be running.

    it sticks to everything and has a tendency to eat every rubber seal on the entire truck.
