    That's minor. Drive a winter or two in Canada and check your frame.

    Lol what do you expect?

    I take it you weren't staying on the sand...

    Go get it oiled with rust cure 3000.

    So what did you do at the beach? Go blasting thru the water, or just the sand?

    How did you "wash" the underside of the truck when you left the beach?

    Good luck!

    Looks good compared to my Wisconsin truck. Probably just the salty air. Personally i'd be tickled if the underside of my truck looked as good. I'm sure there are ways to seal that if it is an issue for you though.
