    I wash it weekly also. I do have some surface rust that appeared in a few spots on my bumper and a few other places. They will all come off with a clay bar when winter ends.

    For a 95 in salt your trucks in great shape!! I had a 95 and sold it in 07' in decent shape (12 years old). 2 years later(my buddy bought it) it almost was rusted to pieces. He had to replace front fenders, rear quarters, cab corners, tailgate hinges, and more. I saw the cancer began and dumped it before it died.

    I don't think that I ever let salt sit on that truck for more than 3 days. It was constantly washed and waxed when it was a DD. We used to have a place near my home called Poly Pro car wash. It was a well lit, heated warehouse with maybe 10 separate pressure washer bays. They had vacuums and air nozzles in each bay. Plus for $2 they would give you a bucket with 3 towels, window cleaner, tire cleaner, degreaser, armour all, and carpet cleaner. You would use the towels and trade them in for new clean towels. They charged you for the time that you were in the building. I could completely detail my truck in and out by myself for around $12. If I waxed it I payed around $20. A group of us would meet there and 4 people would climb in a truck. We could completely detail a truck for $8. So, we would just do one at a time. After I stopped driving it daily I wash it every time it sees salt.

    Oil spray or undercoat it every fall....makes a gooey mess when you want to work on it, but thems the breaks.
