Default whats everyone doing for rust prevention?

i am wondering what everyone is doing for frame rust prevention and under hood rust prevention.

ill let you in on what i do, i try to wash my trucks undercarraige at least once a month at the car was then i use there wax cycle and put a good coat of wax underneath it, then once dry i give the entire underside a coat of wd-40, pb blaster, or similar to keep a lube coating on the underside.

i 4x4 regularly and its a 05 and i dont have any rust under there yet. i am however wondering on the long term effects of spraying wd or pb blaster under my truck, will it eat bushings? because ive noticed im due for an entire bushing replacement which i am going to replace with polyurethane bushings, is it ok for all electrical connections? the only place i dont spray it is my exhaust (cause i did it before and it smoked for a long time)

is there any other methods people use?

Ontario Rust Protection.....Oil Spray, Got it done over a year ago, messy but stays good, dripless kind. I should have went for a respray, they do the hitch all over. No rust under there and well I would say it would not have any seized bolts ever, messy when working under there.

so its a coating? i already looked into an undercoating and i didnt like the idea that everything gets coated, it locks in moisture and makes it very hard to work on.
That krown product is more like what im looking for i think.

Krown sounds like a interesting product . I wonder why there are no dealers here in the USA ?

I did some reading & found out that a company called RUST CHECK & KROWN may have started as the same company at one time.
KROWN is ONLY in Canada & RUST CHECK is international, but, no dealers come up on their site, right now it just reads Kmart??

Had mine done by Krown last April, one month after I got it. Will be having it sprayed every spring. Very inexpensive for the protection you get. Need it up here as they use alot of salt during the Winter.

Thats a good one I don't drive the truck much in the winter. I know having a 4x4 in ND and not driving it in the winter. If I do, it's because there is so much snow you can't get around in a front wheel drive car. As soon as the sand and salt trucks come out, the truck goes back in the garage. Then gets a cleaning, just to make sure.
