My engine is always getting dirty and caked up in dirt, and i know, i know its a truck, but i like to keep it clean;I know in most cars I've had its not this bad, maybe i am missing some engine covers or something?


oh and on the underside of my hood, that flame resistant material is in like 100 pieces can I just get a roll of that stuff at like autozone or can I order one new for my model or what?

Really i didn't know that, it will definitely look a lot better without it!

Took mine off. I think it's more a sound deadener than a flame retardent. been that way for over 5 years and no issues. As far as keeping the engine clean. Don't drive in dirt, mud, rocks, snow, ice. Mall parking lots work well, but serisouly just clean it but that's about all you can do as long as your engine covers are in place between the body and the frame and your skidplates are on.

yea I took it out today, but all i can see is a skidplate on my truck, i think i might be missing some engine covers, are they metal or just plastic, because staying out of Mud, dirt, and ect is kinda out of the question

They're rubber and are located in the fenderwells. If you have a body lift they probably aren't connected or aren't there. Not the fenderwell lining itself these go the the frame and the body.

All it does it drop on the motor in the event of a fire.

Plastic melts off, it drops, smothers the fire...

Try driving faster than it takes for the dirt to get kicked up?
