    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Not a big problem, sand it off to bare metal. Then paint a light coat, then paint again in 15 min. That's it.

    Should I invest in a pressure water and spray under my truck everytime I come back from the snow?

    Spray and scrub with a broom under the truck?

    Thanks

    It would not be a bad idea to wash the salt from under your truck when you come back from north pole.. Rustoleum paint does a pretty good repairing rust spots. Just make sure you remove the loose rust first.

    Just sand off the rust and hit it with some rustoleum in the rattle can! You can get it at Wally world!

    Water based paint will make the rust worse! Get something that's to help prevent rust!

    Washing any salt deposits off the underside of your truck is always a good idea. The sooner you get it off the better.

    Like many people have said. Get some f'ing Rustoleum and go to town on your trucks underside. Use a wirebrush to clean it off then wipe with rubbing alcohol. Then spray away.

    You can also use 3M's rubberized undercoating if you want but the rustoleum is very good.

    FAIK they don't use salt out in this part of the country. Sand maybe, but not salt.

    What does Toyota paint the underside of the truck with, watercolor?

    BTW 7000 miles, no rust showing yet.....:D
