Rust issues on 2013?

Just picked up my F250 on Friday and took a look under the vehicle tonight and found a lot of Ruston the steering rod, axels, welds and brakes. Is this common? I live in Californikazikstan and I'm no where near the coast... My fault for not looking under a brand new rig at the dealer. Please tell me this is common...

The comments on that vid make it seem pretty horrible. Looks sloppy to me.

My truck "dripped" for three days.
Very satisfied.
Not bad at all.

My '13 is rusted underneath as well. I looked at other trucks on the lot and they had it too. I just moved to CT so i don't know what is going to happen when they treat the roads this winter. I guess we'll see.

I'm originally from Branford Ct
I now live in Ca and it just pisses me off that these "Built Ford Tough" trucks have this issue. I'm going to take a wire brush to everything and then shoot it with some night temp clear coat. Ridiculous..
