Silver is the easiest colour to live with. I'll admit that I wasn't huge on Silver when i picked my truck up, but it has grown on me. My bud's with black trucks are always asking if I washed my truck, they are shocked when I tell them its been 3 weeks. They barely get down the road without becoming dirty again.

Ya i spay everything under the truck with fluid film,fluid film can be sprayed on rubber components as it won't hurt them.You have to get in every nook and cranny,the rust prone spots are above rear wheels,front box corners ,cab corners and front fenders.A lot of guys bring their trucks into so called professionals to get oiled but 99 % of them don't get complete coverage in the critical areas.the area above rear wheels is a bad area,there is the outer sheet metal then an inner support that traps dirt and moisture ,the oil has to get between there most shops don't bother.I now have a hoist so i have an easier time oiling it but it is possible to do it on the ground as i have done it for years .you can do it with fluid film sold at most hardware stores in aresol cans but i now buy it in 5 gallon pails.in the USA you can get it here- http://www.kellsportproducts.com I also spray inside the doors ,you have to drill a few access holes but you can buy plastic plugs,Id rather have to drill a few holes and oil than not bother and deal with rust.When i do buy a new truck i will oil it right away

Many thanks Sir-- I think I will do this for sure. When drilling holes in door where do you start? and do you do every year or every two years or is one application the norm? Cheers

I'd get the color you like, you're probably going to have to look at it every day, and do whatever it takes to prevent rust. Krown for one example.

Drill in the lower portion of the door just above the rounded corner so you will be spraying straight in approx 3-4" above bottom of door,i spray once a year.
