How to defeat frame/underside rust one an for all!!!

[NOT FOR THE ECO-FRIENDLY]
Hey guys I wana shared answer to all my frame and underside jeep rust.. Ok here we go.. Easy as 1,2,3...

1. Change your oil, yes you read it correctly..
2. Find a large old paintbrush (or even better, a paint gun) and lather the underside of your jeep with the used oil...
Hit everything liberally..
Hint: skip the muffler or you may get some strange looks the next time u drive down the road

3. Do it again the next time you change your oil.

This has completely stopped any and all the rust that was beginning because of road salt... It really works!!

If there's rust under the oil, it's still gonna rust.

Idk man.. The oil does the trick.. I think it totally stops the rust because it seals out the water moisture... I haven't seen any more rust since I started doing it 4 yrs ago

You've covered the rust with oil, but the rust that's deeper in the metal is still rusting. You just don't see it getting any worse, but it is.

Think of it this way. Rust is like cancer, you have to get rid of it all. If there's just a tiny bit of rust on the metal, it's still gonna rust.

For iron to become iron oxide, three things are required: iron, water and oxygen. When I cover the metal with oil, it seals out the water and therefore the rust no longer has access to one of its required compounds.
Don't bash it till you try it.. My frame is as good as it was 4 yrs ago...
