New truck, rusty parts?

Its my 2010, less than a 1K on it. Had my lift done just recently. After checking it out when I got it back, I noticed this...is it normal?

Everything except the door latch bolt looks normal to me. I would ask the dealer about that bolt though.

I used some oil from an oil change and wiped it down. All those parts are unpainted from the factory. If you live in a corrosive environment I'd take some oil of some kinda and wipe it down.

Yep, my truck is 3 weeks old and I have the same rust. I don't have rust on the door strike screws, but my screws on the tow hook plate are rusty. My 04 with 68000 miles that I traded in looked better underneath than my new $53000. truck.

BTW, the salesman explained that my truck was delivered to them in January and it sat through a few 24" plus snow storms, he said, "you know we had a rough winter" I guess not the case with you, since you live in Florida

Thanks guys. I was thinking the same thing about the parts not being coated with anything and being iron, they probably rusted the day they got out of the factory. My '04 had no rust on it anywhere though, thats why I asked. I was thinking of possibly hitting them with rustoleum, but the used oil sounds like a good idea'r too.

My truck sat in a shipping yard in Miami, ocean air, swamps and humidity.

I havent checked mine, but if it is rusty, im deffinatly gonna spray it with a little paint. I know for sure my bolt for the door latch isnt rusty. Im already starting to get little rust pits on the running boards though.
