preventing oxidation

What is the device that is used as a sacrificial rod to prevent oxidation in two dissimilar metals? Anode? Could this be attached to a Rover frame to prevent oxidation?

Its called a sacrificial anode - and it is designed to work in a solution (sea water) or an underground application where there can occur an actual transfer and flow of electrons. Lots of places sell "cathodic protection" devices which send an electrical current through your parts and supposedly offer corrosion protection. Definitely do your own research on these types of things to satisfy yourself because this is an area where lots of people's beliefs are more important to them than the science at play. Of course there are many such areas...

I purchased a counter act system for my Jeep TJ years ago. I researched it and read the patents on the system. I didn't notice any rust developing, however I rust proofed and undercoated it. I can't claim whether or not it worked...
