    Ok I was just wondering what everyone does to there brand new trucks before they even hit the roads?
    do you undercoat the oil pan all brake and transmission lines and any line that is just base steel? most trucks on here are plow trucks and as mine did the lines rust out not from lack of trying to keep it clean.

    I do nothing, I just trade them in every two years.

    First thing around here is to get it weighed and get truck plates. Then add more weight to it. Plates go by weight for truck plates in Ohio at least.
