3 Features To Look For In Vehicle Undercoating For Your Off-Road Truck


Your off-roading truck takes you through and to all of the places that would be otherwise inaccessible in a regular vehicle. From sloppy mud holes to brush-ridden fields, you really do put the bottom of your four-wheel-drive machine to the test. Therefore, having a good layer of protective vehicle undercoating is a nice gesture to protect the life of your truck. There are an array of different products out there to choose from, so picking the best can be tough. Here is a short list of features to look for in vehicle undercoating to ensure you get the best protection for your effort. 

Adheres to Various Components

You have to be careful about which undercoating you choose because not every product is meant to cover everything. Many undercoating products are specifically formulated to cover metal alone, which will not be of much help when the underside of most vehicles as several different components made from all different materials. The best products will adhere to everything from metal to fiberglass, so you won't have problems with some spots bubbling up and peeling away shortly after application. 

Product Is Easy to Apply 

Most people don't have a lift in their garage like a professional mechanic. Therefore, applying an undercoating will mean lying on your back beneath a jacked-jacked up vehicle. The last thing you want is to be beneath your truck for hours on end trying to slather on undercoating with a brush while it drips all over you. Look for undercoatings that are easy to apply. Some undercoating kits come with a sprayer that allows you to cover everything in the undercarriage with just one sweep of the spray nozzle. Look for no-drip formulas as well that are thick enough that they won't make a mess when you are in the process of applying the product.

Contains Rubberized Composition 

The basic forms of sprayable lubricating undercoating is not what you should go for when you are applying the product to an off-road vehicle. These products help ward off corrosion, but they don't do much else. Look for a good quality undercoating product that has a rubberized formulation. This means the product will go on in a thick film that is flexible but resilient enough to stand up to a little roughness. These undercoatings with rubber components will give you a higher level of protection and also reduce noise from under your truck.
