Usually there are some.... whatever the politically correct term is for hillbillies....... around that will do it.
any good spray oil will do it.. marine spray sticks well - hit the surface rust with a rust converter and you can really slow the rust.

My 2013 F150 has looks better now than when I bought it 2 years ago -

Just to play around with something different...like option "C" daily commuter/mountain bike transport...Jeep Wrangler Pickup.

My debate still with the GMC & Chevy is Rust through...50 &60 K I want no rust through for at least 10 years...to get my money. Always Chevy Guy, but leaning towards purchasing a new Ford Aluminum Pop Can. If the Chevy were to warrant a new truck for at least 10 years no rust through. I would think about it...In Michigan the newer Ford and Chevy trucks, I'm seeing bad rust a 7 years...So when Chevy talks about new alloy metals and carbon fiber thermoplastic, would like to see a lot more of it, and a warranty to back it up...Please

Or a Raptor like Jeep Wrangler pickup with some serious HP would really get the Ticket, to pull the boat.
I manage one of the largest body shops in the twin cities . I have seen 2017 GM trucks that are already rusting at the door skin to shell seams .

My last truck I prepped and bedliner sprayed every door seam. Rockers started showing signs of rust at 10 years / 170k miles. Doors were holding. With too many vehicles the same vintage, that one got traded...

so many people don't understand that there's more to what is thrown on the roads in winter these days... cities buy snow melt which works below the normal temps for rock salt... and then they don't wash their cars or under carriage rinse until spring... washing goes a long way for keeping rust at bay.

70K on my 2013 - surface rust at welds (a little bit but cleaned) under carriage barely any (but also managed) - the 2010 Sierra at neighbor's under carriage and rockers rusted - but he only washes the painted surfaces...

environment took 13 years to eat up the undercarriage on my 2002 E150...

The 2019 LOOKS
GM=Toyota=Dodge all the same Ford is really the only one that doesn't have those lines.. I wonder if they are all but Furd using the same metal stampers and they just change out the press part when the next manf comes through..

I yearn for the day when they go bold again.. like the 2010 Ford 250/350 had a nice looking front end... my 2014 GMC not so much... but the 6.2l and 3.73's were just to hard to pass up!
