Is Undercoating A Truck Worth It?

If you live in a location that gets a lot of snow and ice then undercoating your truck will help to protect it from rust and damage from the chemicals used to melt the snow/ice. However, if you live in a warmer area like Arizona, Texas, California, etc. then undercoating your truck will likely not be worth the cost.

Although undercoating won’t prevent your truck from rusting forever it will help it to not rust as fast and give you longer with a nice looking truck than not undercoating it.  

If you don’t want to spend the small fortune on having a dealer or professional undercoat your truck you can actually do it yourself as well and it is surprisingly affordable too.  

What is Undercoating? It is a liquid that is sprayed onto all of the undercarriage of your vehicle (if done right) which in turn allows the vehicle to last longer before the water and other chemicals (think salt or ice melt) start to eat away at the metal.

Do You Really Need Undercoating Or Is It A Waste Of Money?

If you live in a location where salt and chemicals are sprayed on the road regularly during the winter months then getting an undercoating done is a good choice. Often though you are better off doing it yourself or paying a separate company to do it rather than being overcharged by the dealership to do so.

Does Ford recommend undercoating? Ford does not always recommend undercoating because it does not help your truck unless it is applied properly. Undercoating has a minimal effect in protecting your engine and frame from corrosion.
