Under Carraige Clear Protectant >

Read the post on salt and got me thinking.. Is there a clear protectant undercoating or something we can use to help better protect the vehicle, like some wax there trucks what about under the truck??

You could for sure repaint the bottom of your truck with some heavy duty paint with a clear over the top for protection...

The only thing I've heard of is a friend of mine had the underside coated much like a bedliner. I suppose it is the same as the undercoating they do in the wheel wells.

ya'll don't know what salt residue is until you've had a black truck in Michigan.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.
