Holy Crap now I am not going to sleep very well. I just noticed mine last week had the exact same rust in the exact same place. Dealer told me it was bleed through from the welds. I also have spots on the door sills as well. He took pictures and sent them to Chrysler. I am waiting to hear back.

I LOVE MY DEALER!

I e-mailed my service rep the picture and he called me almost immediately, told me to bring it in at my convenience and it'll go straight to the body shop so they can pull the bed, fix the rust and repaint.

I'd be freaked out but the truck is less than a year old and the bed's been off twice already (once for the lift installation and once to have the side repainted when some anti-hunter *ickhead keyed the side of it last year when I was hunting).

After seeing your picture I ran out and looked at mine. Can't tell if it is rusted becauce there is a rubber weather strip there. Did you take yours off?

It was probably just contamination from the spot weld. You shouldn't have this issue again.

Just curious, did any of you with the rust problems have the dealer apply the rust proof "stuff" with the three year warranty I think?

I am also thinking of getting the rust check or other competitor treatment down each year. Is this over kill?

Thanks for any comments.

Musky....
