Completely agree! I bought my 08' TBSS used from my buddy who was the service manager at the local Chevy dealer. If it wasn't for him being suuuuper meticulous with his vehicles, and this truck being stored winters, I probably wouldn't own one right now.I feel the same way. It is a good practice to undercoat your car when new (I did), but since this is not a daily driving vehicle I do not drive it in the winter. I can enjoy the car by keeping it in mint condition and driving it on sunny days and on trips.
I'm not necessarily telling everyone to do this, but if you live in a bad winter climate area and you care for your car, then you'll try to do what you can. With all cars, good maintenance is the key.
