What to do after off roading

I looked but Iíll admit I am not very good at searching so I apologize if itís covered some place.
Living in the north east. I am getting more into 4 wheeling with my 4Runner.
I donít know if there is anything other than just washing it. Is there anything else that I should consider doing

Where in the north east? Toyota takeover at rausch creek next weekend hosted by Northeast Toyota crawlers if youre interested.

Post wheeling is usually re organize the gear and crawl under the truck to check for loose bolts or anything looks damaged.

After that it usually time to sart planning the next trip out!

Yeah, check for any damage. I have chronic annoying skid plate bolt issues and need to find a solution for the darn bolt once it is not 115F in my garage! (the skid plate rattles a bit offroad). I have rethreaded and what not but the bolt keeps falling off.

But of course you are looking for more significant issues just as a precaution after rock crawling or moving at speed over rough terrain.

Luckily ( knock on wood) I donít have that problem. Itís got to be annoying.
I do look underneath for obvious damage. I am new to this so other than scrapes on the skid plates, or something dripping is there anything in particular you are looking for?

Veteran off roader native to the Arkansas Ozarks national forest area. Been off roading for ten years SOLO in my runner, original owner. Here is my procedure. Simple yet affective. Get you a welder paint marker. After confirming proper torques, witness mark all the nuts and bolts related to your suspension. Witness mark all 8 lower control arm alignment tabs. Witness mark position of jambo nuts on tie rod end links. Now you can visually check before and after each excursion within a minute or two. When you have an issue you'll see it right away and get on top of that sh!t preventing wear and tear making your runner last forever and getting to know your b!tch intimately. Checking alignment is now a matter of seconds also. This also prevents alignment shops and mechanics from f_cking you if you don't diy. For recovery all I've ever needed was a heavy duty come along and a bottle jack to get out of all the situations I've been in, solo. Obviously have a tool kit for trail emergencies. Pay special attention to your CV axels and dust seals after each excursion also for excessive play or leaks, and check boot condition. This is the most likely point of failure over time off roading. I actually keep an extra set for the trail. Have fun and get crazy with it!!

Basic checks, making sure wheels are still torqued, tire pressure isn't leaking at all. I also clean my air filter since my port is pretty exposed as of right now.

1. loose skidplate bolts (like others mentioned)
2. alignment and go over suspension bolts (pen marked).
3. carwash.
4. air filter.
5. buy vehicle upgrades or camping gear for things that annoyed me on the previous trip.

5 is both the best and worst part. What I want/ what it costs.

I check fluid levels out of habit to make sure everything is where I expect it to be. If you have any DIY wiring I would also check that... I've had some Land Rover wiring move around and catch fire before so that sticks in my memory and I am always looking for wiring that has moved around, especially under the hood.

I put the lawn sprinkler u der it and move it around ever 20 minutes. Then itís immediately off to the self serve car wash for an under body pressure wash.

Then reinstall running boards.

Check for damage or loose hardware and front end components.

Great idea marking all the nuts n bolts underneath.
