The only things I've seen about Ziebart are on things other than rustproofing. Between my father and brothers, we have been using them for rustproofing for 60+ years, on over 25 different vehicles. None of us have ever had any issues, and all of the vehicles we've had rustproofed by them have help up much better than most cars/trucks around us, smack dab in the middle of the rust belt. I'll take my chances.
I had my truck Ziebarted shortly after buying it. I made sure to remove the bed liners when I had it rustproofed in the hope that they would coat those areas well, and they did. I let it dry for a few days and reinstalled the liners. I take them off each year for touch ups. Gotta do what you can to prevent the salt from destroying our trucks.
My 2¢ - it was more important for me to get a longer bed, so I purchased a DC w/ the 6.5' bed. I rarely carry anyone in the back seat (other than my coonhound), but I need the bed space versus cab space.
FWIW, I have the same wheels (which I love) on my '15. I put a 1.5" level kit on the front, and recently put on a set of Cooper Discoverer in 275/65R18, so only one size up. Just slightly bigger, no issue with any rubbing.

My experience with the SRAs - terrible in the wet, but okay in the snow. I did get 53k out of them, so no gripes there. Replaced them with Coopers, which have been MUCH better in all weather conditions.
OldBlue61 replied to Jaycreek7908's topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMYours is the first time I've heard of a problem w/ the app. Sorry for your issue; I'd be upset too if it didn't work correctly for me. I've used an iPhone SE and my current Galaxy S9+ and have no issues with either. With the knowledge above, I'm at a loss as to what you can try next.

I've got a 40"x60" pole barn that is home to my truck and the SO's SUV, along with 4 other cars, an ATV, etc. The field mice and spiders got so bad that I had to have an exterminator come out once a year and do his thing. Cost me $200 a year, but I have almost zero mice and spiders now. In my experience, the dryer sheets are best for spiders, and then rodents. Peppermint oil also works very well in repelling mice - they hate the smell of it.
The electronic systems have been proven to be worthless. For me and others in my family, we've been using Ziebart for better than 40 years. While not perfect (nothing is), it's done a good job for us over the years. I've had my '15 Ziebarted and taken back each year for reapplications. I even pull the fender liners so they can get inside the rear wheels real well. Time will tell, but I'm happy with my choice.
