    Do u all think its a good idea to get undercoating on a new truck? I know my neighbor had his undercoated and he also had another finish applied to the trucks paint job to best seal it... But hes a body shop guy so maybe what he did is not common.

    I have heard of people using the rhino coating on the underside of trucks. I would get it under coated and touched up every year. I know a plower that has his oil sprayed every year, it's a 77 and looks new. Mine was undercoated when new (89) and it's just now getting rust outs on the bottom.

    Yeah. I just bought a 95 150 and the body is in great shape but my god looking at the undercarriage you would think it was floated across the Dead Sea for 8 yrs. One of the body mounts in the front is beginning to rot god I hate that. I had a 1980 Bronco, on 4 out of the 10 body mounts the metal supports on the cab above them collapsed. Rust will most likely be the only reason I cant keep a truck on the road longer, they rot out from under you. I wish there was something easy you could do to stop it.
