on my bumper, well, i took a closer look at it, its all just surface rust thankfully, but underneath it on the inside, if you poke your head under, theres tons of rust, all surface rust, but still, does anyone else have this ?? mines only a 01 and i wash it weekly, this is gay...anyways i sanded it and sprayed some rust stuff on it, hopefully it works.

Back bumper? This is why I took my edge bumper off for a chrome one. They rust too easy. Mine was rusty on my 2004 by the winter of 05 (on the inside). My chrome one on the other hand is fine still....

I had rust so bad on my front inner finders Ford had to completely cut one out and replace it and sandblast the crap out of the other one. They also had to sandblast some stuff in the hinges and around the hinges. They also set my floor and floor mat on fire, but they replaced them. I hate rust!

BS.... My truck is spotless all the time, it gets washed and waxed constantly, my bumper still rusted. If you live in the "salt" belt, it will rust...
