    Hey all, this one of my first threads, but i've been lurking for a minute.

    I need help. I bought a babied 2000 taco xtracab, from a gent in arizona.

    The good news. There is almost zero frame rust.

    The bad news. I'm stationed in Utah, near salt lake.


    Before the weather turns to crap (in basically 2 weeks) is there a good undercoating that will prevent rust. I'm curious what the best option is right now.

    Well, i decided to cheat. I contacted the local rhino-linings place, and i'm having them undercoat my trucks frame. Huzzah. Take that, damn salt lake...

    not necessary for salt, you dont want a hard under body coating because it can chip off and expose the metal, hypothetically you want a plyable compound that will stay on the frame and absorb rocks and shit that flies up and hits the frame. Toyota does do a spray for the frame, many say is always tacky and the stealership does a shitty job. Just shoot down your frame with water when you wash truck.
