    Mine is a new 2016 Tundra Limited. What if anything should I do now to prevent rust in the places that are know to be vulnerable in this truck?

    Clue me in, I'm thinking fenderwells and tailgate.

    Some folks use a product called Fluid Film. You can either spray it on in or apply with a brush. I apply it to things such as shocks, nuts, bolts, etc.

    Fliud film the underside. I did both my trucks and it is amazing. I can do it for you if you live near jersey. I have the spray gun and gallons of it. I am afraid of rust especially with Toyota's so that was one the first things I did. I think I posted in the detailing section about it

    I use a couple cans of Fluid Film on my 2010 every year.The underside is as claen and rust-free as I can expect. Works on anything else you want rust-free and "slippery"..........well,on MOST things you want slippery:devil:
