If I ever get off work and get time to work on my Blazer, I'll be pressure washing my frame and using that rubberized undercoating stuff on the frame. Paint gets scratched up to easy and bedliner is a bit harder to make touch ups than rattle can undercoating.

I used it on one of my wheel wells to protect some bare metal where I had to do some grinding a few years ago and it is still holding up great. No rust peeking through and no flaking/peeling.

Hey NJ4x4, are those urethane bushings? Any difference in ride quality with them?

Stiffened up the body. I got them because my old body mounts were cracked.
