And i dont think machine drives his a hell of alot daily anyways.

My truck has spent maybe 2 weeks in a garage since ive owned it...and i wash it like crazy..and overall the body has minimal rust. I have seen newer trucks with rusted out wheel wells and fenders!
The biggest rust issue ive had was my rear leaf spring shackle mount.


Here is the front one...in perfect condition.


And then the new rear one..had both rears replaced.


As far as body rust goes...shes in great shape.


Nice. Looks real clean. How often do you usually wash yours? I try to do it once every 2 weeks

In the summer...maybe every other week. In the winter, depends on how much i drive it and when i can wash it..(if its too cold the car washes close). But i still try at least every other week.

I thought that leaf spring shackle was just my dumb driving.

OK so they blended into the cab probably.

Glenn you gonna use some black magic on those fender flares? I'll see if I can get a sample from work of the stuff we use, they'll look new.

I did. There's a ton of ice built up between the bumper and valance. I'm trying to see if a guy I work with will let me park it in his heated garage for a few hours

Fine don't cuddle with it but it'll remember that, and then it's going to wait for payback... Remember those times you really have to take a shit and can't wait and are in the middle of nowhere when it's -30 out? Well your ranger will...
