What part of Maryland?

My grandparents lived in western Maryland for 20 some odd years and their rust issues were similar to PA. They used coal cinders on the roads as well as sand. Would absolutely trash a vehicle if you didkt keep it clean.

That was also back 15 or so years. Not sure if they followed suit and went to the brine solution and salt. The brine is the absolute worst. It gets into every crevice and will ruin a vehicle in short order if preventive measures arent taken.

The truck is for sale south east of Baltimore. Looks like it was originally sold and lived north of there almost to PA

Any truck living in a salted road area can be damaging to a truck... I live in MA, and my truck is held together by rust in some places...lol

Someone would make a killing if they opened a chain of underbody foam/wash and dry to keep winter damage minimal...

All depends on how it was cared for. I live In Central Maryland and my truck has very little rust. Mainly on the frame.. body is straight.

It was also washed religiously in the winter months.

i live in extreme south east PA and work 45 min into Maryland. just reading your thread title spiked my blood pressure. MDOT is horrible. they do use the brine, and the pretty much apply it every time there is precipitation forecast and the temp is below 40 degrees. it blows my mind. they put so much down, that I think we got snow, and its just the salt turning the roads white

If the vehicle lived, for any time, north of the Mason-Dixon line or in Maryland, it's gonna have rust. Personally, I'll never buy a vehicle that has spent time up north. I've lived east of Pittsburgh and in Syracuse. I've owned vehicles from those areas. Never again. Not unless you're prepared to deal w/ the rust. JMO

Sounds as bad as Michigan except for Goat721 yours sounds way worse. They aren't quite as trigger happy around me but if they were I'd probably need some blood pressure pills to.

That's a great business idea Ricka. Get some guys together on the site and start up a chain of them in the northern U.S. and watch the money roll in.

I ended up not going with the truck in Maryland but thank you for the replies. I tried finding a southern truck but nothing fit my criteria. Ended up find one like Goat`s out of Montana with 18,000 miles on it. It's got some surface rust on the frame but nothing that can't be fixed.
