Anyone living in, and north of, the salt belt should be aware that a yearly rustproof application is the only way to go... Not only for year-round body protection, but also whenever you need to perform mechanical work on the vehicle. The chance of being stuck with seized-up bolts & fasteners is greatly reduced with proper lubrification, and rustproofing does help in this department. Yes, it's a "bit" more dirty to work on but what do you expect?

As for preferred service provider, I agree with the choice of Krown. I have had all my vehicles treated with Krown for the last 10 years and their stuff and method is the best, period. I have tried numerous other rustproof techniques, from Metropolitan to Bob's corner garage, and none gave me the assurance and satisfaction of a well-applied and proven product...

Look at it as a long-term investment. I intend to treat my 2013 1500 with Krown (once I get my bl... truck, just ordered way back in November, BTW )

Right on, good post, I suppose I should have added that point of which living in Ontario is just brutal for salting (over-salting) for that matter, it's a shame really. Rust proofing is your only defense.

Today I got four spray cans of undercoat on sale at Advance Auto and sprayed the underside of my 2013 Quad Hemi Express. I didn't do that on my 2008 or 2010. I will likely trade it before the body rusts. In my younger days in New England I paid lots of money for Tuffcoat and other undercoat service which are all gone. Too many loop holes in the warranty and additional extra charges (and inspections) to keep the warranty valid. Sprayed the bottom to make me feel better. The truck is so tall with those 20" tires I did not need to jack it up

My 08 Ram was the first vehicle that I did not get Krowned, or any other protection for that matter. All 4 doors have rust along the bottom and back seams. The 13 will be getting done every fall. Although the way things seem to be going it may not be here before next spring anyways.

Yes but one you still need it inspected every year I'm sure not for free, it never got in all the crannies and most specify it has to rust from the inside out. So good luck going after Chrysler when it rusts and they say they won't cover it. Not being rude because that's what they told me to and I got it done at the dealership but will also be getting it done at krown every year. Better 2x covered than anything

Could you tell me the areas you really concentrated on when you sprayed the undercoating on? And what areas did you stay away from? I'm a new first time truck owner. Thank you

Krown uses much better stuff then dealership at a better price. I have debated getting mine done at krown.. but idk if there is a point seeing as it hasnt been done before and it's an 08?

I suppose it would depend on whether you plan on keeping your truck or not, I would think looking where they sprayed mine, if you had any rust unforseen, it may completely slow that process. My truck has been home for a couple of days after I got it done and this stuff really adheres to everything underneath even with the melting lately and spray from the road right now, if it sticks that good it will certainly do well in hidden spots that aren't exposed to anything trying to remove it.

without a doubt i would get it done...

if im not mistaken, the 3rd gens are notorious for rusting wheelwells in the box. if its not there yet, it would def prevent it in my opinion.
