I've lived in Chicago all my life and the rust isn't an issue on the frames even though we use large amounts of salt in the winter. I've never had the under body rust proofed. No real issues. Usually around here the sheet metal underneath the doors is the first thing to rust through I am not sure if rust proofing would really prevent that.

As for the Chrome bumpers, this happens especially when you get rock and stone chips that begin to oxidize. Its not really rust just oxidation. I've seen Suburbans with chrome bumpers that look like they were sprayed with an reddish paint because all the chrome chipped off.
