FWIW, I had my truck ziebarted a couple of weeks after I received it, and I'm glad I did, if for no other reason than the peace of mind that I didn't have to worry about rust on the frame or in the doors. I only took it back once (in 11 years) to have it 'touched up'. After it was a couple of years old, the closest ziebart installer went belly up, and it wasn't worth trying to find another dealer close by to take over the annual pm.
I also got it ziebarted for the small noise abatement that it provided. At the time, I think I only spent $350 to have it done, and they came and got the truck from my workplace, did the ziebart, and then returned it. I knew exactly how many miles from point a to point b, and the mileage on the odometer was exactly what it should've been.
Of course, all of this was 11 years ago. Today's trucks are much quieter. But, in a road salt enviroment, I would seriously consider having it done.
my .02 cents worth
