We'll dealer again said it's not their problem basically. They said they had offered me some anti rust module earlier ( as far as I know those are bs).
So I just had it Krown coated couple days ago and it looks alright now. Plus Krown insures their product as Long as you apply annually. So might as well.

From Wikipedia:

"Weathering steel, best-known under the trademark COR-TEN steel and sometimes written without the hyphen as "Corten steel", is a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather for several years."

That's what I do also, most probably the best thing you can do to your JK.

Its sort of like the guardrails you see out there with the patina of rust. They are fine.

Do we know for sure this is the kind of alloy the JK has on the frame, axle and driveshaft?

I kinda doubt it. If it was, they'd be touting it in all their marketing literature...

Just purchased my brand new jeep wrangler here in North Carolina and noticed a lot of rust underneath on frame areas and drive shafts.Going to try the Permatex ,not going to even bother contacting dealer on this issue waste of time.

Might just be cheaper to have Krown or your local rust proofing place do it for you instead of getting a 6pack of cans. Also guaranteed to hit everywhere you need it
