    Hello everyone....Living in South Jersey by the beach. Was wondering if anyone undercoated there truck to help against rust? Does it help or just leave it. This salt air is horrible. Also want to take my 2013 taco on the beach, good or bad idea? Will undercoat help?

    I see you have a 13. If you aren't showing signs of rust, you can go ahead and coat. If you do have rust, you should sand it first, then coat.

    General consensus is it helps, sure can't hurt right?
