ok so I called them and they said it will show surface rust but it will never rust through? The reason I went with ss is because I didnt think it showed rust at all?

No matter what kind of stainless you are using they all will show some kind of corrosion.
The 409 stainless will show rust spots, but if you try and clean the pipes whenever you clean the truck it will be minimized. The 304 stainless is a polished ss and it fends off the corrosion better than the 409. I would recommend cleaning them up and using some stainless polish, that will help.

That sucks but I guess if I want them to look better then I will clean them. Is there anything to spray on them to keep them cleaner longer like a clearcoat or something?

I ask that same question to my painter and he said you could but it would dull the finish, but if you don't spray it the polished parts like your tip it should work for awhile. I would use a high temp clear (it's a little more durable).

I have mbrp aluminized kit on truck for over 2 years now and live in minnesota.... salt on the roads is terrible... I always make a point of spraying the under side of the truck every time i wash it... I have zero rust on mine.... I dont see the point of stainless if you are willing to take care of aluminized.... to the OP i suggest just polishing real good then a good spray on protectant should help

I spray the underside of my truck when I wash it too, and my bargain FBD aluminized exhaust isn't even thinking of rusting.

Just hit it with some steel wool once in a while. Any protectant you put on it will go up in fumes don't waste the cash.

I used to clean mine all the time but eventually gave up on it. It helps a lot to at least spray it down good when you wash the truck. With the high EGT's that these trucks run, not much you put on the pipes will last very long.
