Sure,anytime you add something that isn't part of a factory-stamped part,you always risk moisture and rust because dirt/moisture can get into places you wouldn't think could.
But also take into consideration,how much salt in winter,how much you off-road.
Depends on exposure to elements ,some trucks never have problems,others do-all depends on exposure

My wife was standing in our front yard. The Colorado National Monument is the mountain you can see. The Colorado river is just past the winter wheat field you see in the pic. Got to love Western Colorado.

Good question, some keen eyes you got there pardner. I read a lot of these 7.3 guys are leaking fuel out of their fuel filter bowl, so I ran a hose from it & taped a water bottle to it to see if it's leaking there. I found no fuel & forgot to take it off.
