    And it is too late if I've had it for a year already?

    $150 or so for the fluid film kit, it should be able to do it once plus a touch up next year. I will do that after I paint the exposed shiny bits of the frame with some 2 part satin black

    $160 to ProFleetCare. Undercarriage and inside door panels, corners, bed and tailgate. Very similar product to Krown.

    You can get fluid film in spray can for 8 bucks at your local Lowe’s...2 cans will do the whole truck.

    I’m locked in for $150 a coating with Krown (get it once per year and they lock you in on price)......They only warranty if you get it coated within 6mo of manufacture date, but I think it’s still worth getting at a later stage for how well it works.

    The way I see it, no matter which rust prevention you go with, if you spend $150/yr for 10yrs you’re looking at $1500......if you don’t do it, and you live where there’s salt, in 10yrs you’re looking at way more than $1500 in repairs or lost equity from rust damage

    I also paid Krown $150.

    I think it’s money well spent since my last truck was sold due to frame rust.
