How do you boys up north...

.,.keep your trucks so clean and rust free? I got family up near Ithaca, NY, and it seems like nobody drives diesel trucks up there, and all the trucks are just rolling rust buckets. The trucks I see on here look really good, like Terry's, Elmo's, Ol'_Blue's, etc. Lots of great looking northern trucks.

Lima ohio salts, but I'm from buffalo ny, most vehicles are gunna rot up here with the amount of salt used, I know a good 20 people driving diesels around here mostly dmax though. Most people that care about their trucks here including me get ours professionally under coated every fall and wash them once a week. It does the trick pretty well but the rot will still catch up eventually. Only reason my truck is so clean for being up north is because it's only seen one winter originally it's from Arizona.

I got family in Buffalo too. Man, I don't know how you live up there. The cold probably wouldn't bother, but the salt rusting my vehicles away would piss me off to no end.
