    Rust Prevention and Reversal: Whats Your Experience?

    I try to wash the body and the observable frame twice a month in winter. Ive found that it actually really helps for the most part. I do the same as you in the summer though ill go right underneath and come out looking like i just rolled around in a pig pen

    Rust Prevention and Reversal: Whats Your Experience?

    Yup wasn't even going to consider rubber undercoating. Only heard bad things about it. Ive heard some really good things about spray wax as kinda a "top coat" so I was really leaning that route.

    Rust Prevention and Reversal: Whats Your Experience?

    Did you ever notice the POR15 cracking or worsening any rust? People seem to say some really good things about it, but when I went onto some autobody and paint forums the guys were opposed to it as they said it was "too brittle and would crack"

    Rust Prevention and Reversal: Whats Your Experience?

    Glad to hear - my dads truck had been undercoated from the factory and once more in its 10 year lifespan. Honestly I agree that it works to an extent. I'm not trying to make the truck show quality perfect I just want it to last longer than if everything rusted through.

    Rust Prevention and Reversal: Whats Your Experience?

    Moved to BC a while back. You're right definitely better in terms of rust. The Durangos frame (which is from Vancouver) has very little rust on it. However my Ranger (Calgary truck) is a whole 'nother story

    Rust Prevention and Reversal: Whats Your Experience?

    Rust sucks. If you live north of the rust belt you likely know this all too well. I've been spending some time this past winter researching some rust protection and reformation products and I realized there is not a lot of long term information on these products. So I figured I'd open up a...

    07 Ranger (North America) front mudflap help

    So figured id post up what I decided to do. Was at the junkyard the other day getting stuff for the Durango. Noticed a Ranger Edge sitting around, with the factory flaps on the rear. Score! I took at look at the rear metal brackets to see if they would work on the front. They look like they...

    07 Ranger (North America) front mudflap help

    Yeah, they definitely make a huge difference. Most of the time when you mention them, people seem to turn their nose up at them "aww they look bad" yatta yatta, Personally I don't mind how they look, and for the protection of the body (and the rest of the truck) - its worth it I'll take a look...

    07 Ranger (North America) front mudflap help

    Hey all, not sure if this is the correct place to post this.... I recently bought a 2007 Ranger Sport as the new daily. Being a sport package truck, it came factory with rear mudflaps, but not front ones. Why Mudflaps? Well, I live up north where they salt the roads, from personal experience...

    1998 Durango - The Purple Nurple

Its a 2wd, 3.0, 5spd, No Cruise, no AC, manual locks, and manual windows. it was previously owned by an older gentleman, and is...

To make matters worse i found some rust on the lower cab too..... Looks like ill be doing some bodywork. However on a more positive note, I struck gold...
