if you have a rusting out 04 you should probly try washing it a lil more offen, and dont just wash the outside, as far as repair, it all depends on how good you are with a welder and paint gun

I wash it once a week! It's my work truck so it is on a construction site every day. If I didn't wash it reg it would be trashed. It isn't rusting thru yet mostly paint bubbles and moisture. Just wondering if anyone had any luck with undercoating inside the well or anything else. Want to keep this truck for a while.

why not get a flatbed and have it undercoated with rhino lining?

if its not completely rusted threw like surface rust around the wheel wells from rocks, you can sand it down to bare metal then prime it then put some wheel well covers or fender flairs, or take it to a painter and have your apint blended in and matched good as new

Don't want the flatbed just yet. Maybe down the road.

That is kinda wat I had in mind but instead of flairs doing rhino line on the rockers and wheel flairs. Anyone done this?

I cleaned and sanded the inside of mine real well and sprayed undercoating inside the wheelwell from day 1. Looks real nice but I stick to the highway with mine.
