just dont pressure wash it up close. You can hose it down no problems. Toyota does a good job sealing up stuff.

Common sense is your best tool here. If you see anything that looks expensive and/or electrical due to all the wires sticking out of it, don't keep the pressure on it too long. No need to cover anything up, but that doesn't necessarily mean to pressure flood everything either...
