XXXX, do see any reason not to use anti-seize compound instead of grease? Based on my experience with it in similar conditions, it holds up well enough for this application, maybe better than grease.

On the rear bumper, where the SR5/OR has chrome, the Sport is painted. If the paint is chipped through the primer, rust will form.

Ah, now I see. I didn't spend a lot of time looking over the Sport, so I didn't understand how a plastic bumper cover could rust.

crazyasu45, for a quick fix, you can put Fluid Film on the scratch to prevent further corrosion. It can be cleaned off during paint prep when you want to touch it up. Since you already have rust, you'll want to clean it up as best you can, then use a primer designed to arrest the rust before using the MGM top coat. The Detailing section should have more information for you. Sorry for the confusion.

It washes out quicker from what I have found. Need something waterproof for obvious reasons. Excessive grease seems to harden and form a barrier without washing away.

You've certainly established your bona fides with those photos!

I have fairly light winters and don't have any U-boat aspirations. I plan to do a suspension upgrade this summer, so I'll put this off until then. From what you've said, a heavy marine grease might be the best lube for the job. Too bad Toyota didn't put a grease path and zerk in the design. I think it'd be hard to DIY it to the current parts.

Don't worry about it. You'll know when it starts to chew again. In the future, you might try using a sanding pen to clean up rust and loose paint. They're basically a fiberglass stick, and you can trim the tip to fit into very small pits and scratches.

I must say mud/sand/water are worse then salt any day for wear parts.
Yes, a good marine grease would be best IMO. It will attract dirt, but in case's similar to mine who cares. It will be there anyway so why not fill every void with grease to block it.

It was built the same day you bought it. These trucks sit for months at a time before being delivered to a dealership When our new vehicles come in at my shop the tires are way over inflated so they don't get flat spots from sitting so long

Which is... bizarre and more than a little late.

Note the wood screws. The keys act as fender washers to bind the frame to the 2x4 in the back.

I feel this is a condemnation of the post-modern world. The e-brake cable bisects the timber, representing the noose of our masters, into which we meekly insert our necks for the illusion of prosperity and freedom.

In the present, all is decay, but the key to happiness lies within.

Actually, it makes me feel like someone should call the city about the nutter with a POS Ford sitting in their front yard, with a couch in what's left of the bed.
