Road Salt Sucks
 
From New York and it gets salty up here. Basically i'm asking what you do to keep your jeep clean short of sticking it in the garage, And wether those zync phosphate products actually work.

The zync phosphate helps but it will not do the job, the only thing I found that works,
IS LOTS AND LOTS OF CLEAN WATER, a pressure washer is the easies way to get most of it, aim for all the holes in the frame, and flush it out welly well. At least once a week, or more if you have the time, and the washer.

Thanks guys! i pressure wash as much as possible but most of the time its below freezing so its hard to find time for it :/

I will be using POR 15 on the frame this spring in preparation for next winter.

I power wash at a quarter wash. They use hot water, so its nice for getting big ice chunks off too.

then right after I towel dry the top and get crazy with wd-40 for under side.
I try once a week.

Tell me about it..Im in CT and weve been getting whacked with the storms. The salt is ridiculous. I have to go to a gas station soon and use their hose. LOTS of POR is being done in the spring and summer. Hope to get the whole underside covered within a few days.
