Frame Rust treatments, Fluid Film vs used oil?

Looking to treat 02 Tacoma with a fairly new frame.


I am debating going for the Fluid Film NAS treatment, DIY using a kit, or using a 50% mix of used engine oil and used transmission fluid, sprayed on.


No doubt this would be repeated every year or so.


Any thoughts?

I use both fluid film and used oil, I sprayed everything I could with fluid film and flooded the inside of the boxed frame with used oil as well. Not a fan of the boxed frame on any truck, it's a recipe for rust and certainly no stronger than the old style open ladder style frames.
