    Default Rust on my 08 Z71 Silverado

    I was wondering if this was normal for a 2008 Z71. It has 43,500 miles and seems like it has more rust than it should. In some spots, the coating on the frame is just peeling off. A few pics are attached.

    Assuming that your truck has been through 4 winters with salt on the roads, its probably normal. Other than looking rough when you are under the truck, it will not harm anythng. I'd make sure that the wash you use in the winter has an underbody spray.
