    I have a 97 Silverado Z71 extended cab. Does anyone know why lower rear of cab rusts and eventually rots? Is it from leaks somewhere above? I know there must be a lot of other members who have experienced this and i would like to know the solution.

    Welcome to the GM TruckClub! I had a '96 like yours, but never had any rust problems and have not heard of the problem. Good luck!

    Where do you live?
    Regional weather conditions and road chemical have a lot to do with these type conditions.
    I've never seen corrosion in these areas on trucks this new in the south/southwest and west.

    I have the same problem on my '98 in the midwest.

    The rust on cab corners is without a doubt a geographical condition. My 88 burban is solid underneath and on rocker sills. no rot.
