Welcome to the forum. Can I ask what your driving in? I only ask because the back of the brake pads are rusting also, that is very uncommon. If riding in salt water or something similar you might try to find a way to get a good coat of paint on the problem areas. I'm kind of surprised your dealer didn't do that for you.

Salt will corrode like crazy, regardless of powder coat. I see what looks to be salt residue on your rear diff and boots and even in the tailgate. You need to get that stuff off fast. Soap and water is best. Not just spraying with a hose its a pain to remove

Why do people call you Moose? Cause calling me Elk sounded funny

Hmmmm, Florida are you one of those people that are all over youtube with the new UTV/ATV's up to their handle bars in the swamp for miles on end? No offense I'm just wondering, I know its probably fun you just won't catch me doing it with my stuff. I work too hard for my money to spend this much on new stuff and then submerge it.

I'm with Moose on this there are signs of salt corrosion on the rear end and I didn't notice the salt residue on the tailgate but it sure looks like it.

No salt at all. I bought it so I can drive my wife and 2 kids 3 and 5 up and down trails and thru some mud. Before the first service I noticed the rust it was 10 days old.

Well can't say for sure because I'm not familiar with your mud, but I'd say you've been through something that's fairly corrosive. We are all fresh water here too and in a desert to boot but our water is corrosive none the less

Weird. Mine has been through/parked in water to the bottom of the doors as duck hunting transportation most days since the season started, and no rust like that. Looking at those pics, I would have said brackish water right off the bat.

So many ducks, so little time ....

A can of high gloss black spray paint will fix it right up and last a long time. Like I said, I'm surprised your dealer didn't take care of it. A couple seconds and let it dry.
