    i dont know about everyone but here in pa,they have used much more of a salt/brine solution for road applications this year than ever before.
    my 2010 has a new bumper being installed next friday and i requested it to be black to stay away from another problem.
    i have spent about 8 hours the last three days at local aftermarket shop and seems they have had a few complaints and problems from many manufacturers about rust,paint scaling etc.
    does any know what is exatly in those tanks on the back of the plow trucks.
