    i'm guessing you have a armaguard/linex box liner in your truck. If so the problem is they fill the drainage holes with that shit at hte bottom of the gate and it holds all the moisture in, and rots out the bottom of the gate.

    Negative. His truck has one of those plastic drop-in liners Dodge used in the mid-2000's.

    Those trucks are notorious for having rotten tailgates, and the rear wheel arches. I run the Armaguard in south edmonton, and those drain holes stay open after we spray them. The problem is, the bottom edge of the drain hole, ends approx. 1/4" above the bottom fold of tailgate so water and salt all gets trapped in that fold at the bottom of the tailgate.

    So I'm getting mixed results here.

    Some sources say there is a rust inhibitor (but do not list the ingredient) and some don't...

    Any COE employees here?

    The light snow fall on Tuesday, combined with cars compacting it into all the nooks and crannies of the pavement, caused the roads to be like ice rinks this morning. Was super surprised when I 4 wheel drifted out of McDonalds in the Impreza, it was slick out.

    Dunno if that stuff would have really helped. Like when you follow on pavement behind a plow, that stuff is slick. Basically polished snow/ice.

    It didn't look like they used it last night, they just scraped the roads to reveal the ice like usual after a snowfall.

    Also is anyone noticing a lot more salt/salt creep in their garage since this stuff has been implemented?

    I read (or heard) somewhere that the anti-icing stuff is ineffective under-20 so they don't bother to use it then.
