Any of you Obs owners experience extreme rust on the frame? The body is mint not a spot of rust.

I have a late 97, 12/97 to be exact. It seams as if the frame was never factory wax/coated.

im the opposite, the body is rusting on mine and the frame is fine, but it looks like my truck was undercoated at one point

I took the bed off and I'm descaling the frame. I bought a gallon of rust converter and a gallon of oil based paint so I can nip the rust in the butt before it gets too bad.

I bought the truck 2 months ago and the previous owner keep it outside. So I'm sure thats what did it. At least it will from now on be garage kept and never drivin in the winter.
