Krown Rust Proofing, every year or 2?

Do I really need to rust proof, with krown, every year when I only drive this 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee for about 30 mins per day...I find it's still oily and greasy under the hood and Jeep after 1 year...I live north of the New York border by the way...

People rust proof their Jeeps? I thought rust just added character to jeeps . If it's oily/greasy under your hood, you might have some other problem that needs to be addressed...like an oil leak. Under my hood keeps as clean as a whistle (minus dust) even through the winter snows and MoDOT salting and sanding the roads here all winter. Then again I have those nifty skid plates to protect most of the undercarriage.

As for rust, I only have very minor surface rust on the rear end of the WK with no treatment ever and after going on 8yrs...

No...but I'll give you 5 points (which your wife/significant other will promptly remove and slap you for getting ) if you can name her. I'll give you a hint: she's a p*rnstar...

Also, if I looked like her, my Jeep would have NO RUST...Guys would be fighting over who would be applying new undercoating to my Jeep every MONTH for FREE!
