    Re: Let's talk trucks


    Anyone have recommendations on rust prevention? Current vehicle is starting to pop some rust. It’s a 2007 but it’s New England. I can see rust forming underneath on the floor pan joints as well. In the market for a 2015 ish tundra and want to limit the rusting.

    Perfect. Thanks! I’m guess I would just have to mount it a little lower if I want a bed cover?

    You can mount it where you want since you're drilling the holes. The truck I had it on didn't have a cover, but my current truck and cover wouldn't be a problem for it.

    Start hitting those areas with Fluid Film to stop the rust from progressing.

    check out NH Oil, i had my Jeep done in late June by Mass Mobile Undercoating in Grafton. they did a fantastic job, external and internal frame areas, etc. are coated.

    they consider it an annual treatment but i'm going to see if i can get two seasons out of it. i'll spot treat dry areas with Fluid Film, have it on the shelf already. paid $240.

    Re: Let's talk trucks

    Yes, which is intentional. Best practice is to fluid film the undercarriage and then go for a slow drive on a dusty dirt road. The dust sticks to the oil, and forms a layer that resits water/etc clearing it off down the line.

    my buddy Chris had his new(ish) Chevy PU done, i was convinced after seeing it. NH Oil stays wet but does 'cure' a bit over time, thickens a little but not like the wax product line. mine dripped a lot, but i knew that would happen having it done in summer heat.

    as for everything sticking to it, oddly, no. like Josh said, dust will sort of coat it but mine has stayed a nice factory black looking coating but not full of dirt or anything. the wet shine dulled down a bit as well. i've been off-road but not in deep mud, remains to be seen how it will handle a spray down. supposed to be fine under normal water pressures.

    since your Taco is brand new, you should look into their 'wax 'n oil' product for new vehicles. sounds like an even better option.

    Fluid film...but re-application is needed. Can easily find it in Maine as it's used on snowplow's and such as well...

    Not really a truck but still kind of cool...

    Ford actually included a factory dig on the Bronco.

    Re: Let's talk trucks

    The Jeep is capable of digging like that as well, I suspect it'll magically appear in software soon. As it is right now if I unlock my ECU I can map the four back steering wheel buttons to the matching wheels and on demand individually lock'em.

    Then why has Jeep never enabled it? Seems like an easy addition according to you, no?

    Same reason I can't click the lockers on in 2H or 4H, etc: liability concerns.

    We don't know what will be required to get into that mode, or how much control the end user will have of it yet, etc. Again, for most modern TC setups this is just a software thing given cars already have independent control of brake calipers, and as noted it's already been shown doable on the Jeep in particular. Looking at the Tazer, they use the independent brake control as a software linelock on other Dodge/Jeep stuff like Chargers too. https://www.zautomotive.com/product/tazer-jl-mini/ has a list of some of the stuff that can be done with just a software unlock.

    Re: Let's talk trucks

    Fully electric off roaders will be interesting. If you've got independent wheel control you can do more than just a drag for a dig, throw that wheel straight up into reverse! Mercedes has been playing with that on road cars, able to maintain stupid speed and control in the rain by controlling power to each wheel, including using back torque at times.
