So I have a 2004 Gmc Sierra SLE that I use as a gravel bomber/work/farm truck. Lately all the rust on the bottom rockers has been getting worse and driving me nuts just looking at it. I really can't afford to just bring it into a body shop and get it all fixed up properly, and don't really see the worth it being a $5000 truck at best.
Was browsing online one day about the problem and came across these great plastic rocker guard covers from Bushwacker. https://www.amazon.ca/Bushwacker-14068-Rocker-Chevrolet-Extended/dp/B01I4Y1L1K/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1522179472&sr=8-3&keywords=bushwacker+trail+armor
Love these and it covers all the rust and lack of metal remaining Lol.
Now I know its lipstick on a pig at this point but outta site outta mind. Wish up here in Canada they wouldn't salt the roads after every light dusting of snow so we could have nice things last longer.
Here are some before and afters.
So i bought my truck about 2 years ago didnt have any sign of rust. Well now im pissed. I have bubbles coming in on rear wheel wells and underside of doors. As im reading i see these truck have this problem with the 2 piece bed where the v shape of the two sheet metals met at the wheel well. I noticed the 3 rubber plugs you can remove. My question is should i just leave them out?
Seriously my truck is immaculate untill now. And it went from one bubble to about 10 in less then a year. Kills me
and the bottom side of doors are just as bad. Is that plastic dust gaurd on the bottom of doors what causes the problem? Should i remove those? (Crew cab).
Im gonna show some pics too.

Just had what i believe is my front brake line blow out on a 2014 SIlverado 1500 LT (4WD V6).
All of a sudden my pedal starts going to the floor, tried to pump it once and same thing so i'm like crap something is wrong. Was able to park the truck and look under and saw fluid pouring out by the brake line on the front right wheel.
Thank god it happened as i was parking in my driveway (or at least that's when they leaked enough to stop working).
Can anyone suggest a good replacement brake line kit for the entire truck? I dont trust any of the lines now, i want to replace them all with steel braided lines unless there is something even better than that.
So I noticed today that my 6 month old 2017 white sierra is developing Freckles. looks like tiny rust spots all down both sides and on the front bumper. When i saw the first bits it was on the door and i thought, oh no, maybe my tires have thrown rocks n stuff up and dug right through the clear and paint etc to the metal and now it's rusting, but as i looked harder there is tiny rust spots forming over most of the truck, including places where there is no chance of road debris hitting, and parts that aren't even metal underneath, like the door trim and the pillar post sticker things. Whole truck is looking like crap now and it's not even a year old. I'm able to rub some of the spots out so it seems like it might just be rail dust in the clear coat, anyone have any thoughts on this? is it covered under warranty? Is it something i can fix myself if not? pretty much new truck looks like a fat irish kid now, not impressed at all.
