Rust Protection

Just wondering what you guys are using for rust protection on your power strokes? I currently have been getting my old truck oil sprayed every year. It works good but it's messy. With my new truck arriving in a couple of months I'm trying to figure out what's best to use? Any suggestions?

I was thinking of having my truck done by ziebart, but I'm undecided. They say if it's not done properly it can actually be worse then it was uncoated due to water getting trapped inside and what-not. I'm curious to hear from other people have done for rust protection though.

ya I asked them and they said they don't allow anyone in the shop while it's getting sprayed. I may end up passing then.

I use fluid film on all my vehicles!
I got a 5 gallon bucket of it and I use a sand blasting gun kit to apply it!
You tube it the stuff is amazing!
We use if for everything!

+1 for Fluidfilm. It was developed by the Eureka company for use on Navy vessels. It's easy to apply with an air gun and I think it's cheap insurance. I live in NW Pennsylvania and they put all kinds of nasty stuff on the roads. I used Fluidfilm on my Tundras with awesome results. 6 winters and no rust to speak of on the frames and nothing on sheet metal. Buy the right gun and air nozzle and you can coat inside panels/doors/etc.

I reapply annually after a good pressure washing underneath. Because it is a lanolin wool wax, it's not harmful for you either (well..unless you guzzled it or something LOL).

So this fluidfilm stuff is more of a water repellant that eventually wears off and you just re apply it yearly?

I buy the gallon of cp90 rustproofing from Carwell and spray it on with a siphon gun from Eastwood. Works great and it displaces water.
