Talking this past weekend to my bud who is a mechanic who knows a body man, he told me it is because Dodge uses some type of foam in that area and therefore it collects water, salt, sand etc and that is the main reason why you see so many Dodge trucks with rust there.

Just curious is this is indeed true and if so, is it still in use on the new trucks?

I get my vehicles undercoated at least once every two yrs with Rust Check so hopefully I don't get the issue, but I am not sure if the product actually reaches or the applicator can access the areas I am talking about?
I have my vehicles undercoated yearly at Rust Check and so far so good....I haven't had any issues at all with any vehicle that I have owned....I really don't know why...I have seen the same thing....

My buddy owns rust check and I can tell you that it does reach the spots....They should remove your rear lights on your truck at which time they stick a long wand down the entire box area.......When I get my vehicles done they ususally drip for up to three months.....Not saying more is better but I have never had any body issues,......
