    Looking to get my 1st Gen Tacoma undercoated for the winter. It has never seen snow and I want to keep the undercarriage fresh.

    I'm in Massachusetts but I do travel from there and in between Southern Maine and NYC (on occasion)

    Looking for a good deal on the undercoat and have it done right.. Maybe do it myself?

    Any ideas?

    There's a ton of ideas floating around here.
    Quite a few threads on it too. Read a few of them to get some background on some of the products.

    From spraying stuff like Zeibart to good ol' oil, all depends on what you expect and don't want.

    Each has it's advantages.

    Myself i use FF (Fluid Film)......

    I have used the ziebart rustproofing on a number of my vehicles and have never had a rust problem yet.

    I just got my 2011 rust proofed about a month ago. One thing to note, make sure you go to a reputable ziebart dealer and not one with no so good reviews.

    Hope this helps...

    Have you looked into the frame recall?

    Not sure if your Vin applies, but it's worth the shot!
