Rustoleum or Rust Bullet for underneath tub

I'm looking to clean up under my tub with a light wire brushing and seal/paint it to prevent further rusting. I'm not looking to go crazy with the prep, would anyone recommend just rustoleum over rust bullet?

I used the duplicolor undercoating. It is a better sealant in my opinion and is rubberized.

If you have rust already then POR15 is the way to go.

Looking at doing a prep with picklex20 and finishing off with zero rust, the tub won't be exposed to rocks at all so I'm not worried about chipping the zero rust. It's also dramatically cheaper than the rest. I'm thinking of por-15 or equivalent for my frame later

I'd start with the frame... of course, I am starting with the frame. Only done the front cross member, sway, and a little bit around it so far though. Thinking a good springtime/summer project has now become a good winter project.

I would use POR15. I used RUST BULLETT on my bumpers and in a year it reappeared. I wire brushed to bare metal to remove the rust and it came back so POR15 can't be any worse. I would not buy RUST BULLETT again. I ended up replacing the bumper.
