RUST!! How to prevent, what do you guys do after everyr ride

I have a 2004 tj and it's in great shape, I wash it after every ride. I am starting to get bubbles underneath my doors towards the bottom of the tub(rocker panel). What have you guys done to fix/ prevent this! What do you guys do after every ride to keep your rig looking good?

Maybe an idea would be to take it to rust proofing company every year or two which may slow the problem down. I would suggest posting close up pics for better suggestions.

Rust proofing runs about 120$ up here, company called Krown. Not sure if you guys have this company in the states but if its done regularly then it should help against it.

http://www.krown.com/

They spray the crap out of your vehicle, inside the panels... I mean everywhere. I did that for my old Mazda pickup and it helps. The PO had done it, I could see traces of it on the inner portions of the jeep. Was also undercoated by the PO. I may do it next year or every other year to keep the routing going.

Unless I'm wheeling, my Jeep is always clean. I don't roll around covered in crap for days to look like a tough guy. Clean it inside and out, wash out the frame, touch up any bare spots. Keep it clean and touched up in the areas you can and cannot see and you shouldn't have any issues.

This stuff works well. 2 cans per side of frame and anywhere else you can spray it.
