Default Undercoating my Mega

These salty Ohio roads have caused the undercarriage in my 06 to get kind of ugly so I was thinking about undercoating it somehow. Wondering what kind of products are the best and what does a dealer use? Would Line-x or any other bedliner stuff work?

I use something called (Fluid Film). Remove fender liners and try to find a car wash that has a bottom blast feature, run her thru 2 or 3 times. Get her on a lift if you can, or at least in a garage up on jack stands. Check above the braces that run fore and aft above rear wheels for trapped dirt, sand and salt, clean as well as you can, same with all holes in the frame. Remove all wheels including spare.Put garbage bags around disc brakes. Once everything is clean, spray or brush rust converter on all rust. The one that I use is CRC Rust Converter. Let it set a while, maybe a day for the converter to react and neutralize the rust, it will turn black. Then I spray a heavy coat of Fluid Film everywhere, especially the blind areas over rear tires, inside frame, inside doors. Try to repeat every year. If you do it yourself, you know it's done right.
