Spayed a 1/2 gallon on mine today. Really went to town and took apart everything I could.

BManz On my Grand I sprayed Amsoil MPHD (heavy duty metal protector) on the underside. A friend of mine did it to a 2008 Wrangler and has no rust after 4 salty midwestern winters. It sprays on like WD-40 but dries to a wax-like finish. Water just beads right off the areas sprayed and did not block any water drain passages -- it's a really thin coat. When I applied my treatment I rubbed it down and kind of cleaned the underbody. The spots I missed around the front suspension have surface rust but everything else I sprayed is rust free. The black factory paint on the suspension components is poor, IMHO, but the MPHD treated areas look new. It was $10/can from a rep and one can did the whole underbody of my Grand and had plenty left over. The only negative, short term like 3-4 days, is that it smells like crayons but after that, no smell.

damndirtydog Leaving Florida for Utah next summer. I have an 09. I've been adding some extra black rustolium to problem areas and as much of the frame as i can get to. I'm afraid my white skyjacker shocks will be rust brown after the first winter.

Undercoating will trap moisture. I'd leave it be and clean it up every spring. That's what I did when we lived in Ohio.

What are your thoughts on the 2012 frames and sheet metal holding up in the Ohio salty winters? I know I am going to get surface rust on certain parts underneath it just happens in the salt. Do you think undercoating is a waste?
