    Haven't been on here for a while. When I was last on I was living in Barstow, CA but now I am living in the cold place called Rome, NY. I have a rust free 1999 Suburban that I am hoping doesn't acquire the damage that the salty roads cause. If anybody has any tips and tricks besides not driving it please let me know. Thanks ahead of time for ur help!

    Several things you can consider. To prevent rust, don't drive it or have it oiled. Oil can work wonders, but can drip off for a while leaving a bit of a mess if you keep it in a garage. Otherwise drive carefully watching for people around you who are just stupid drivers....they seem to be increasing in numbers by the day. Otherwise be sure to wash it regularly and don't forget to wash the undercarriage.

    Undercoat your truck. Wash it once a week during the winter, and be very very careful in snowy weather, and you (and your Chevy) will be just fine.

    All of the above and under coat the back face of the rear bumper to prevent rust out as the splash back loves those places. I've seen many rear bumpers rusted out in the salt belt states. Keep the lower front fenders near the doors clear of debris that blocks the drainage from above. Like you already know Rome isn't Barstow. Rust preventative maintenance is important here.
