So my question is can you spray WD-40 on your electrical connectors, struts, shocks and control arms, ball joints and things of that nature?????

Sure. But what is it you are trying to accomplish?

The thing to realize about WD-40 is that it was developed to displace water and then evaporate at a later point. While you can spray something, say a rusting section of steel tubing, and it will displace any moisture that is present in the rust and wherever it creeps, it will not act as a barrier or a protectant against future moisture intrusion because of it's volatility. It might stick around for a few days or a week or so, but beyond that, forget it.

I just seen a video of someone doing it and just thought he was crazy.
I wouldn't think this would have to be said --- but there are a lot of things on the interwebs that are just plain ol' unhealthy, impractical, ignorant, ill-advised, retarded and dangerous.

If you know what West Texas pinstripes are, a handy preventative measure is to wipe the truck down with WD#40 pre-excursion. Amazing how the scratchy stuff just slips along the body with a good layer of WD. Yes, you’ll collect some dust, but it comes off super easy at the next wash. Go for the 1 gallón can, no aerosol. Hit those wheel wells too if you think some sticky clay mud might be a possibility.

If you already have the West Texas pinstripes in effect, and you need to sell your rig…go straight back to the WD.Great temporary scratch-hider from archaic lowrider times.😜
