Default krown rust proofing and thoughts on rust proofing

Hello everybody,
I was wondering about factory rust proofing and if one should go with krown rust proofing instead. Also does anyone one know if Krown rust proofing voids the warrenty for a new ram? any thoughts on the matter would be a great help
cheers

I was told the Krown won't void the warranty by a Chrysler rep. The stuff they offer you at the dealer level is junk. I made that mistake once and never again. I've been doing Krown since the truck was 1 year old after a body shop repairing my truck after being rear ended showed me how much rust had started inside the body panels above the passenger rear wheel well.

Thanks, I'll have to look into it. My plan was to keep in in my Shelter Logic and NOT drive it on crappy days in the winter. I didn't buy the truck for a daily driver.

You will be fine. I have never had a Ram rust issue in 17 years and I am in the North East. The key is to wash often and spray up under the truck. By doing this my last 2006 2500 Ram I just traded in still looked new underneath. The top side looked immaculate.

This leads to my next question that i just thought of...
When should I get the krown rust proofing, I just picked up the truck today, so should I wait a year, or get it done as soon as possible. I live in an area where salt and other de-icers are used very liberally. I just want to get the most life out of my truck, and I really appreciate the help.
cheers,
ctc

If the truck is brand new, if you get the truck done within 3 months of it being new, and then get it done every year after that, Krown will warranty rust repairs, I think they have to be rust through. Truck has to be done every year withing 30 days of the anniversary of the last spray.

My last Ram, a 12 QC was done at Crappy Tire at 8 km, left the dealer went a block and a half and had it done.

Present truck done by a friend's son using No Drip product

My 01 Dakota (bought new in 02) had Chrysler rustproofing. top of rear wheel wells perforated in 2010 but started bubbling in 09, front corner of drivers door perforated in 2011. Bothe were repaired by Chrysler but I don't think any future holes were covered. they have a maximum repair $$$. I would rather have had zero rust than covered repairs.

Believe yearly oiling is the best for our area, that been said a friend had his 01 Ford 2500 done at Rust check yearly for 14 years and they wouldn't cover rear wheel well rust saying the area couldn't be reached with their spray..

The wonderful rear quarters is the main reason I've stayed away from Dodge/Ram trucks. I had to change because I needed a 3/4 ton for a bigger camper and couldn't get a Super Duty without chrome. We don't have a Krown dealer locally, but there's a place that does hot oil treatment about an hour away. Has anyone ever done a hot oil treatment for protection? It's either that or Ziebart
