his has nothing to do with the mud. It has something to do with being up north and a 12 year old ranger. THe salt off the streets destroys vehicles paint and metal. Cars/trucks from the north have it bad when it comes to rust.

Thats why im glad i'm in the south. Just a minimal chance of ever getting rust.

You're going to be very disappointed if you put a sway bar in hoping it'll help you in the snow or giving you stability. If it was in the front, yeah but a rear sway bar is only going to be useful if you're turning at high speeds. If you have a hopping problem you should invest in a nice set of Bilstein shocks.

Holy Rust is right! Looks like you might need a Tetnis shot after climbing under there.

You guys hang around too many new vehicles! either that or your need to move north for a winter, rust is about as certain as the sun rising tommorow where I come from... especially under the body

Down south you have salt in the air with all the salt water...don't give me crap about southern cars. You just get rust in 'other' areas, too.
