    Whats up guys,

    Im new to the site but been plowing for years. Just put in an order for a new sander for a f550 that we have and was looking for some input on undercoating. Being using the 3m rubberized undercoating but looking for other options to help get some longer life out of the truck.

    open for all suggestions

    Thanks

    I've never used the stuff, but I've gotten some interesting literature from Rhomar, products specifically for that purpose. I've been using fluid film and it works quite well as a corrosion preventative in every area I've used it, but I have yet to do a whole truck with it.

    Rubberized asphalt works well....do it every spring with proper clean/wash first.

    Also either oil spray/Krwon or Rust check evry spring or fall

    Florida?

    It doesn't snow but the sodium content in everything there is just as bad. Good point though, change environment. There are things that help, but the nature of the best is corrosion.

    PM as described above, keep equipment sprayed off, keep it painted, etc..... and charge enough to replace as necessary. LOL.
