I guess it all depends on who and how it is done.
I personally do not believe it is worth the cost or the potential for damage it could cause.
I do not think that rust proofing "no rustproofing material evident" is proof that these vehicles were not done at the factory. Corrosion protection applied at the factory may not look any different than another layer of paint. An area for air to circulate and any moisture to exit is more important than spraying on "rust proofing. Also frequent washes during snow and salt periods go a long way. Touching up the underside from chips etc goes a long way in preventing rust from developing. Living in the big city for many years with roads paved in salt during the winter I have had no issues with rust on my vehicles.
Oh yes maybe the 1960's or 1970's I did have. Especially one that was rust proofed that rusted out in 3 years. But that was the quality back then along with a sloppy rust proofing job I am sure.
Just my humble opinion.

Have used Krown for 10 plus years on several vehicle and have never had an issue with rust either from inside or surface. It does drip for a few weeks in warm weather and I usually park it on an old tarp. Like several posts have mentioned wash and wax can help to prevent rust as well.

So I have to start this off with. I DO NOT WORK FOR KROWN and am not affilliated in any way.

With that out of the way. My son bought a 98 Ford Explorer. It had been protected with krown. We have no idea how many times. It is an Ontario car. it is RUST FREE. (rare thing on explorers of this era)


I have is no doubt Krown works. Whether or not our JEEPs need it is another question entirely.

I am having mine done soon.

I agree with Sangill... Rust proofing used to be a phenominal idea 15-20 years ago. Now the metal used in new cars is a much different animal. Not only is the steel less susceptible to rust, but the treatment used to treat, prepare and paint the various panels is much different.

I would add rust treating your vehicle will not void any warranty. They would have to prove that what you did somehow caused damage that lead to a warranty claim which is unlikely if not impossible to prove.

These spray in rustproofing is for inside out rust protection. For exterior outside-in protection look for someone to install 3M Paint Protection Film. It's like window tint for your paint. You can hardly see it after applied correctly. http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...rd-Pro-Series/

After reading this thread as a new member to the forums, I'm still trying to figure out what the consensus is for rust proofing on our Jeeps!

From the sounds of it our Jeeps are built pretty tough already and Krown's rust proofing is a good vendor to go get rust proofing done at, but at the end of the day, do our Cherokees need the additional rust proofing?

Thanks

I had a 1999 Ford Explorer which I had rustproofed by Krown. Not a spec of rust. I've used Krown for decades on all my vehicles and they all had no rust on them and they all were over 10 years old when I traded them in. The only rust problem I had was around the sunroof of a Mazda 323, since they don't spray the roof of the car. If you are planning on keeping your vehicle for a while, it is a good investment in my opinion.

I should get my factory order sometime in the summer, and I'm considering getting Krown rustproofing when I get it.

This thread was started 2.5 years ago and some owners have had their Cherokee's over 4 Canadian winters now.

Anyone have any updates on how their vehicles has aged with Krown or without?
