    Hello All..
    I just bought an 07 AC 4X4. After cleaning 40 lbs of sand and crud from the undercarriage I saw quite a bit of rust. I read the posts about POR and Rustoleum etc. That might work fine but..
    I found this stuff and was wondering if anyone has tried it?

    I used similar stuff in a spray can on mine before, as well as other cars. It works good (keep in mind I live in the South). No signs of rust where I put it yet after a year! If you are unsure, got to HD, Lowes or Wally World and look for a spray can of converter (krylon?). It will save you a few bucks off the large size until you decide if it works for you.
