Body rust

Is anyone else starting to see paint bubbling? I'm starting to see some bubbling of the paint and body rust above the left rear wheel.

Already???? Do you live where there is salt put on the roads in winter? If so after the salt you need to spray into the fenders from the inside and get the salt out from there. That's a very common place for these trucks to rust because of salt sitting there around me. My buddies 05 is bubbling right there too. After I plow and the roads dry I completely rinse down the whole truck and inside all the fenders to be sure there is no salt left sitting.

I don't have any paint bubbly, I've got some scratches that have surface rust. But that will be fixed this summer. I live in Canada so their is always salt on the road for 4 months of the year. I have the electronic rust protector and it also gets under coated yearly.

Yes, salted roads. I wash my truck whenever temperatures allow me.

Geez, I have the water ran from my water heater to where I can switch my hose outside from cold to hot water so that I can wash when it's cold. Just make sure ya pull the hose off and roll it up so the water drains to keep it from freezing. We use to go to the car wash to wash the salt trucks and by the time you drove home they were dirty again so that's when we started washing them at our place.

I used this company's products before; they are pretty good, but it is a dirty job if you're rinsing off the undercarriage. It was also suggested to me by another forum member to spray the undercarriage with a spray-wax product, which would be after salt decontamination as a protective factor.
