    I live in the northeast and in the winter they heavily treat the roads with salt and chemicals because ‘snow’. Wanted to see if anyone had opinions on undercoating and whether it helps prevent against rust.

    I had my bed, wheel wells, and entire under-body line-x'd. I also live in the North East. I want to say the whole thing cost me $1200 or so? To be honest I don't remember. Regardless, worth it for the practicality (bed) , looks (wheel wells), and peace of mind (underside) for me personally

    I live in NY. I use AMS oil MP metal protectant. Applied it to the frame and other parts under the truck last fall. I have zero rust. So far its lasted threw one winter and a full beach season.

    Well isn't the entire body aluminum? Al won't rust - I have used Amsoil HDMP to spray on the steel parts - shit works really well.

    I've never had the need but hear many people use "fluid film" for this purpose.

    I’ve used fluid film on my ram and have had good results with it. It’s a 2014 and I’ve had it for 2 winters out of the 5 years I’ve had it. Used fluid film both winters

    Just picked up 4 cans and am planning on spraying her down. Question, do I need to clean it good first or do you just go for it? Thanks

    Edit: can says get it clean first they apply, let cure 12 hours fully
