    Hey All,

    Is there any reason not to have my 2010 F250 undercoated? I won't be spreading anything but will be out when the salt, etc. is being put down by the state and county. Any brand of undercoating better than the rest?

    The best undercoating I found in spray cans is 3M.

    Would be a really good idea actually Neil with that new 7', 6" Western and all. 3M makes a good undercoating, or another popular idea is to use a spray in bedliner product on the undercarriage. My problem with Fluid Film is that if you wash your truck after every event, you will lose the protection as it will wash off under direct spray. Another cheap alternative is used oil. You can spray that on the undercarriage, but be warned, it will cause a big mess. Many swear by this method as it's cheap and easy to do. I don't know how it holds up under repeated washings though.

    I prefer to find a no maintenance type of undercoating, so anything that needs to be reapplied won't be my first choice. I am leaning towards finding a shop that will spray on a rubberized undercoating vs. me laying on my back trying to spray everything and then cleaning up the aftermath.

    Other than exhaust and moving parts, is there anything to avoid getting sprayed? Anything that requires special attention or maybe multiple coats?

    Watch your driveshafts. Too much undercoating on a side will unbalance them and create problems. You have a Ziebarts near you?
