Default miricle in a can???..yes for real...

about 5 ish years ago maybe more in some forum I ran across a recommendation for a rust dissolver lubricant and thought..too good to be true..but after using corrosion x for everything under the sun and for lubricating and getting rid of squeaks in motor and fan bearings and all kinds of other uses, I can honestly say this stuff WORKS 110%!!!!..its a little pricey but a little goes a looong way...usually its about $18 for a 16 oz can I found it on sale by googling it at autogeek, they have 25% off and it comes down to $10 and some change each can, heres the link https://www.autogeek.net/corrosionx-aerosol.html
I have NO affiliation with autogeek, they just have the best price..heres a video for it..buy yourself a can and it will become your goto problem solver, safe for all electronics..I use it alot for the end switches on zone valves that stop working because a little corrosion builds up on the contacts..also any rusted nut or bolt, spray and let it sit for an hour and it does melt the rust away, you will find a ton of uses...


and its fantastic on guns, fishing reels..the list goes on forever..it leaves a water proof coat that lasts a good 6 months that prevents rust and gets rid of existing rust...

I’m going to give it a shot. Had a break job and replaced my running boards on my ‘11 power wagon and was horrified to see the rust underneath when on the lift. I’ve always washed the undercarriage after every snow storm.

This is something @Tango needs to check out!

I have used this to spray the chassis and any brackets , hose clamps, braided hose ends and anything to keep the rust from getting in and it has worked well, along with anything already rusted up..
it creeps into every nook and cranny..

It’s all good.
I’ll drive the Dodge Ram 1500, for 2-3 years and then trade it in, and any rust/etc won’t be my problem!
And yes, living in Ontario, Canada is in the snow belt, so we salt the $#|7 out of our snow covered roads, so rust is a problem on cars/trucks after about 7-10 years.

But once agin That’s the beauty of trading in after 2-3 years.

So to all the idiots who think dodge is $#|7 and that Ford/Chevy is the BEST truck on the market and that those brands dont have any problems.. later for you.
All brands have their said problems.

I’ve driven trucks/vans form all 3 major brands.. They all are just as good as the next..

Stop being so “brand loyal”,
that’s exactly what the truck companies- advertising, brainwashes YOU to be.

In the end, all my trucks/vans have been very reliable to get me to and from my jobs/work. Which is making me money in the Plumbing industry, and that’s all that counts.

Unless you go back to the early Ď90s, the only true 4x4 where all 4 are driven, youíre limited to the power wagon and raptor, donít know if Chevy makes one... otherwise 4x4 means one in the front, one in the rear.

Rubicon also has a true 4x4.

But, yeah, rust happens to every brand.

Mine I can unlock my suspension... for the unlikely case I want to go rock crawling....

That's why I drive a Toyota!

Seriously because I do my own repairs Toyota is better designed than my freaking GMC work van.

To remove an axle bearing on my toyota, 4 nuts and the end of the brake line.

The fooking van, gotta remove the spare tire, remove the diff cover, drain the oil, remove the diff pin and other crap, pull the axle, hammer the crap out of the bearing with a special tool, Reinstall in reverse order. Guess what the bearing failed after a week and both oil seals the week after. I did this nonsense 3 times!!!
