Best rust preventative?

Hey guys just looking for some input. Just purchased a 2008 f350. Truck came up from Florida and has no rust. Unfortunately being from ohio I know it doesn't take long for the wonderful road salt to eat these trucks away. I've heard plenty o remedies over the years from people spraying undercoating. To soaking the underside with used oil every year. Just wondering what you guys have used or have had good luck with.

The thing about rubberized undercoating is that it can allow moisture to get trapped between the rubber and the metal causing rust to go undetected. Its a real problem on vintage cars when you find 30 year old sound deadener used for rust preventative, because under that stuff evil lurks.

I have always liked the wax based stuff, it blocks oxygen and therefore can prevent rust. The thing about that stuff is it needs clean metal to adhere too. But, with a bug sprayer with a modified nozzle you can fog the inside of a door or rocker panel.

Are you just looking for something easy to spray on real quick like rubber coating or something to go real in depth on like POR 15 or Eastwood?

I've have yet to buy it, but a product call Krown came highly recommended from a local car collector. It's available in aerosol cans. Easy to spray into doors, cab corners etc.

You'll have to google it, it's a Canadian product. They have stations to have your vehicle done up north. The product is available here.

I'll be ordering some in the next week or two.

Just lookin for any type of preventative. Just seeing what you guys think works best pros/cons of different options. I'm probably leaving towards some type of oil base that I can spray. I've even seen people pull plugs on the doors and fill them with oil to prevent the dreaded ford "door rot".

Another vote for fluid film. Buy the kit and save the gouging they do for aerosol cans. I went with the upgraded spray gun, and extended flexible wand, and it really makes getting into the doors easy. I used about 3/4 gallon on mine if your curious. Extended cab long bed.
