RE: Did you undercoat your new truck?
I live in the north east and as you may know ,the township loves to spread that dam salt like if there's no tommorow. I have had 3 vehicles undercoated in the past 25 years and have nothing bad to say about doing it to my cars except for the mess. Each car is different because of the space between the parts on the undercarrage and you may have to cover up some parts before having it done.. Last month was the first time I had it done to a truck and my only advice is to make sure you get someone responsable who can cover up your rims ,exaust tranny, engine , rear and leaf springs. My biggest problem was the overspray on to my exaust and mags. Don't undercoat your suspention cause it will squeek. If you live in areas like mine your truck is prone to rust more than in the warm sothern states. Up here it is worth it . Dodge only gives the 3/30k rust warrenty and I assure that the undercoat goes way beyound that. Some guys are against it but I beleave in preventive maintanace. And no it does not make it rust faster. The undercoating I used was of tar/sylaconebase and there is no way any type water or other elements were getting past it. My 25 year old crown vic still has its undercoating and has zero rust in the areas covered.Hope this helps
