I'd venture to say that one way or the other, his ass is going to be dragging the ground soon. Axle comes out, frame breaks in half....seat falls through the floor. One is bound to happen...

Thanks, I will have to look into that for our van. Looks like the closest "dealer" to me is about 30 miles away.

That's not bad, for a two year old truck in Pittsburgh...

I was gonna go that route but I said fuck the northeast. I think my cousin pays $100 for his 2017 Dodge 4 door 2500. The place he goes to sprays everything. $200 a year is very cheap insurance.

I been wanting to try that stuff but FF has been working great. Maybe next year I will use it on gf's car. I wonder if they offer anything smaller than 5 gallons.

My jeep had it when I bought it. Moisture got under it and rusted everything. I was peeling it off and it took layers of rust with it. It's also a bitch to work on stuff with it covered in that shit.

Like I mentioned before, Fluid Film once a year before winter. One gallon is $40ish and just spray it on everything except brakes.

Second salt boat for the year delivering another years worth of truck cancer.
Here's an old ore boat put on salt duty. Century old hull, they last forever on the Lakes. You'll notice the overlapping plates and rivets. It's pre-welding age. The Irish can't make a rivetted boat stand up against ice, but a bunch of drunk Slavs from Great Lakes Shipbuilding can.

Drafted 25' with road salt.

See those rust streaks out of the scuppers? They rust from the inside. Kinda like Toyota frame rot. If they just carry ore, coal, and grain, they last 110+ years.

billdacat Brought two TJ's from New Jersey (yeah it sucked). My 04 has some serious torque-box issues. The 06TJ is doing pretty good, but it was babied very well.
Fucking New Jersey DOT would drop tons of metal eating crap just to rake in the overtime. Fucking township plow operators would be ripping up naked pavement working overtime.
My rigs have drive-trains that have been well taken care of. They might have some miles on them, but they will get you home.

He is in the states. The U.P. of Mi. Jeez. I love the west. Don't have that problem. Don't miss living up there.

I just picked up a 52 Willy's Wagon that has no paint left but has no holes.

Ebs When there's areas of your truck you know not to pressure wash because it might disappear.

Heck I survived driving my camaro for 2 years at Michigan Tech (a lot of hills) - had good snow tires in rear with a 150lbs of sand tubes...Ö Wasn't ideal but it worked till I got my truck on the road.
This, it's pretty bad. I wish they would just use sand, but roads have to be clear so every non driving idiot can do 80 mph to get to work on timei had a 79 Camaro with 10" wide tires on the back and pizza cutters for fronts. Went through 3 winters. Only saw one ditch because my throttle stuck. I was also playing around driving sideways at the time...i miss that car

County roads mostly just get plowed. Two 750' long ships worth used up in 2 small counties every year, mostly on just the state/federal highways passing through.

microtus I had my TJ shipped over here from California knowing that it was going to die a slow rusty death.

When we moved back here, My chicks 08 Colorado had zero rust. 4 years later I'm replacing rocker panels. And we try not to drive it much in the winter. I also hose the underside down with LPS3 every year.

Black Sheep I trust no one from the north when discussing rust.

OP is a great example "just a little" shouldve been scrapped years ago. If the original brake lines dont look brand new, then its rusted. So many people try to pass off "just a bubble" or some other bullshit like its pristine.

Jeep people are the worst offenders in the south.
10-14-2019 02:57 PM
sterlingfire Fuck that truck is clean!
I wash mine regularly. They don't get rusty as fast if you're diligent. I have 2 08 2500hd's. One i drove until it had 280k on it. Rear fender finally has rust on it, but fixable. The other my fireman drives, and pieces are falling off the rear fenders lol
