    My dealership offered me the same rust thingy for $1495.00 :eek:, and went on to tell me that the warranty was for rust-THROUGH only !! I told him to keep it. When I went to pick up my truck after dealer prep, they had installed the module by accident, had applied the paint protect and interior protect as well, and I got to keep it all for free!

    I still went and got my truck sprayed within the week of purchase (mid-June). The sprayer took out the tail lights, drilled holes (and plugged) in the door bottoms, and sprayed everywhere he could. $100 and the creeping oil dripped for a month in the 80 degree heat.

    I bought the truck to use it as a tool, and I don't sleep under it, so preserving such a large investment is the priority... spraying oil is a good thing.

    I'm a total believer in "Corrosion Free" spray on rust inhibitor... it's pretty much the same as Rust Check and Krown....but WITHOUT the drip and it "creeps" all the time and forces water outta places it should not be... I have to wash the truck every month or the stuff is creeping out of the bottom of the doors and creeping up about 6" on the outside of the doors....

    They offer a warranty that covers brake lines and fuel lines, etc. etc.... AND they are good for it, as I broke a park brake cable on my old Frod van... no fault to rust, just faulty Ford crap.... they covered the repair...no questions asked...

    Where I find a real advantage of doing the Corrosion Free application every 18 months is this... it don't trap water like the tar type stuff and all your nuts and bolts are in good shape if you try to remove them and no squeaky springs or anything........not rusted to crap and needing a torch to cut them....

    I've had 3 cars with this stuff and will do every one I ever have..... It's an '06 and the frame looks like it just came outta the showroom... not like some of the pics I see on here...ALL RUSTY...

    It costs $, but well worth it if you live is "salt land" up here in the Great White north....

    Good luck guys....
