Why to Wash Road Salt off Your Ford Truck after Winter in Utah

2020 Ford F-150 | Roosevelt, UT

Utah winters involve a lot of beautiful snow, but that also means the roads are always covered with salt. This is great for clearing the roads, but it also leads to salt building up on your Ford pickup truck. It’s important to clean the salt off of your Ford F-150 or Ford Ranger to avoid the rust caused by corrosive road salt.

Now that the weather is finally warming up, it’s important to wash road salt off your ford truck. Here’s why.

When salt builds up on the body or undercarriage of your truck, it can lead to early rusting, and that’s a hard problem to fix once it’s started. Once rust begins forming, it spreads quickly, so it’s best to take precautions and stop it before it starts by washing salt off all metal surfaces before it can oxidize.

When you drive a pickup truck from L&L Motor, you’re working it harder than you would any other kind of vehicle. Trucks haul large trailers and carry heavy loads. Thus, to get the most out of your truck’s capabilities, maintaining the integrity of its construction is crucial.

Now that spring is here and the cold weather is mostly behind us, it’s time to give your truck a thorough wash. It’s also a good idea to bring your truck in for a post-winter maintenance checkup, so contact the L&L Motor service center, and we’ll ensure your truck is in great shape.
