Oil Spraying to prevent rust?

Hi all,

My SRT is on it's way and I'm wondering if I should be doing some sort of oil spray to prevent rust? Our city dumps tons of salt all winter long.

My previous two Audis had factory 12 year warranties against rust so I never thought about it.

Thanks!

I wouldn't bother. My son and I have owned 5 Jeeps (1 Wrangler, 2 GCs, 2GCSRTs) and kept them all for a minimum of 6 years, with never a spot of rust. I've never done an oil spray...isn't it kind of messy?

I'd find a good local touchless car wash that does the heavy duty under spray and use it a minimum of once a week, and after every heavy snow and new salt.

Or, pick up a pressure washer and one of those curved wands.

Just had mine sprayed... always do.


Even when you wash there is always a little bit of water that gets thru and sits in the bottom of the doors till it dries, you end up with door seams that bubble... never had that happen since I oil spray.


I used Krown in Canada
