In all fairness, most of the trails I go on rarely have more then a few mud puddles if that. I don't go mud bogging or anything, just off-road trails up in the moutains, which are mostly rocks and dirt. So that helps to keep the truck clean too. It's not that I don't like mud, just not usually present on the trails I like to off road on. I do love the snow in the wintertime though, but again, doesn't cause a lot of dirt up in the engine compartment.
One idea that I have read several posts about is from guys who wash their truck once, then spray everything (engine, engine bay, undercarrage, etc...) with wd40 (they buy industrial size cans). Then when they go wheeling the next time, the mud sticks, but washes off with ease according to them. I've seen pics of their undercarrages, and they look like new. You should try that.
