Well I cant speak for ^that device, but my dad is an authorized dealer for The Rusterminator, and lets just say this. On an old beater car he had, a 1991 crown vic cop car, he installed the rusterminator. After something like 6 years of HARSH NY salty winters, there was minimal surface rust on the new exhaust, and the already-present rust holes were no bigger or weaker.

On his 2002 impala cop car, which has ALSO seen raggedy, salty NY winters has ZERO rust on it w/ the rusterminator.

Rusterminator actually guarantees your car w/ a new paint job that it wont rust thru (car has to be like a max of 5years old or something..)

And some more food for though; the US Navy uses a GARGANTUAN electronic rust disruptor on all their naval ships.

This is BS ,there are systems like this that the armed services use, but the voltage needed to produce any results that would keep a truck from rusting ( like 440 volts and 55 amps) could never be produced from a truck alternator and battery system. My brother -in -law paid 450$ for a similar system for his 06 Tundra ,when it was new. He has nice green and red lights that blink on and off, but it has yet to prevent any rust. He never had any other form of rust proofing done because he believed that this BS system would keep his truck rust free. Well guess what, the truck has been thru 2 exhaust system , shocks and numerous other parts destroyed by rust. He now believes that this may have had negative affects on his truck causing accelerated rusting. I have a '95 obs that I run WVO in a separate tank , anybody that has used WVO knows that its awfully hard to keep the oil from spilling all over the bed. The frame that the oil drips onto is like new condition, even after going through numerous Western New York winters coating the frame in salt to the point that its white. So don't waste your money on these BS systems. you will loose , the company will get rich and the rust will win. Just my 2 cents

Whereabouts in OP? I love OP man.. good place and good times.

BUT. The rusterminator my dad installs is only like 100$ or 200$ or some ****.. and there is a company guarantee. My dad told me that it needs to be installed in a very specific way or else it wont work.

My dad says there is some fine-print warranty info though. Supposedly these systems are supposed to prevent ROT and rust-THRU.. not necessarily surface rust.

Rust is rust , no matter how you slice it. If you let surface rust go, it will scale and accelerate beyond control. WVO is way cheaper , just spray it on before winter and you'll build up a layer that is soft and flexible and water proof. I live down the street from the Bills stadium. You can follow my biodiesel exhaust with your nose and it will take you to my door.

Good idea w/ the WVO.. but what about the body of the truck? Isn't going to do much good there.

But my grandparents used to live (and my dad all his life) right down the road from the stadium.. the road road kitty-corner to the 7-11 there.

^Are you being serious?? I've seen more dodges rust out under 5 years old than I've seen anything. With OLDER fords being a close second. But modern Fords seems pretty good about rust.
