    Do y'all have issues with rust or salting the roads out here? I'm in Augusta and wondering if I need to worry about coating the undercarriage with something. I hear that's the thing to do in colder weather. Are we even in the rust belt?

    We're South of the rust belt.

    Since the "Snowpocalyspe" in 2014, GA as a whole has committed some level of effort to actually have salt trucks and DOT resources to keep our highways clear. With that said though, road salting is usually an occurance that's yearly at best.

    I wouldn't worry about it at all, and if we get inclement weather that involves road salt, just do a very thorough job rinsing the undercarriage after it's all cleared up. I use a standard garden sprinkler and just park the truck on top of it, moving it every few minutes until I'm confident everything's cleared out.

    Yeah I heard about that. A friend was here during that and told me about, which is why I asked. Glad to know I don't have to worry about it.

    That's a brilliant idea haha. A garden sprinkler...never would have thought of that.

    I’m in AL but I sprayed a couple cans worth underneath just because I like to keep things looking new. Did that a year or so ago and still looks good on most of those parts under there. Certainly won’t hurt anything I guess.

    How hard is it to get off once it's on there?

    There would really be no reason to ever take it off. But if you do need to, a pressure washer will do the trick no problem
