I just got my new FJ cruiser and want to protect the chasis etc before it starts to rust. Chasis is ofc nice black painted now. What product and method do you recommend to prevent rust forming and which can be applied on clean paint.

Fluid film or Rust Cure 3000. Both great products. I like the 'creeping' the rust cure does, but I like the stay on power of fluid film. My FJ is covered in both.

I used to FF. But check out Woolwax. It's Fluid film on steroids.

I have a 07 and cumplite painting underneath frame with Rust Bullet silver and then black top coated. Before winter spray with Fluid Film all underneath and inside frame. See Amazon kits with wand. Come with 3 cans but got extra one from Autozone and finish the job.After 2 1/2 months steel smell funny and in some area look like I just spread the fluid and tricks me I have a oil leak. Fluid Film doses stay on.

In my area, Chicago, and I'm sure many others, you can get the undercarriage undercoated professionally for about 150-200 bucks. Now, if you go this route and you see some rust forming, buy a rust neutralizer, some are better than others, and go to town spraying it yourself before you get it undercoated. This will turn the rust black. Do not spray undercoating on a rusted frame, this is where people blow it. Based on my experience these sprays out of a can work great. And then to top it off and before the snow hits, fluid film or a form thereof.
Last but not least, Gibbs. Spray the crap out of your motor, tranny, etc. Don't worry about getting it on the exhaust, it will burn off fine. This stuff does an amazing job of sealing, lubricating, you name it, it does it.
