Howdy all, I am starting to notice rust on the very bottom of the
door. First it was on the inside I sanded loose stuff off then applied
two coats of POR 15. That camoflaged it for awhile but now it is
visable on the outside of the door.
Now this is the only door this is happening to all other doors are
fine. I spoke with a coworker who had a 2005 Ram 2500 and his did the
same thing so what seems to give here they are not even close in age.
Might I be missing weep holes at the bottom of this door? Otherwise
truck is in great shape for it's age and has only 33k on the clock. It
is also the Turbo diesel.
Check the weep holes. Pour in a couple bottles of 90% alcohol to check
weep hole action. This will also absorb mositure on its way out the
Another possible solution. Move to a dry climate. Like Las Vegas. Only
4" of rain.
