Not really road salt, more of a bad design by Ford.they are a square open box tube that crap just lays in and not made of very good steel and not sprayed with any kind of protectant.I now see a lot of fords with that problem now that I know about it.When I get the new ones welded in I'm going to see what I can do to prevent that from ever happening again. My wife took pictures of them. If I could figure out how to post them I would to show what I'm talking about. Other than a little rust over the right rear wheel well(another bad design)there isn't hardly a mark on the truck except parking lot dings. The truck is really a very strong running truck so I hope to keep it going for several more years.God Bless, Beth and Allen.
