Wait till spring/summer. When the salt is no longer used. Then sand down to bare metal. Prime and repaint to match the rest of the truck. Some body shops will do this for around 500 dollars depending on how bad the rust damage is.

Since you say Detroit Cancer I am guessing your from Michigan.

no... ha actually im from indiana and my dad has owned fords all his life and everyone of them has gotten rust right there and thats just what he called it. lol then i started saying it and it just kinda stuck. wierd i know... but its all good
p.s. what causes all fords to do that????????? its almost like one of the great wonders of the world. because if it aint rusting now, it eventually will... sounds crazy but true. i know a guy with a 97 f350 psd with 30k on it!!!!and it is starting to rust!!!!!i offered him $18000 for it and he wouldnt take it. it is almost perfect!!

you can buy replacment wheel archs for about 50 a pop, cut out only what you need and weld back in and smooth down. Then if your not comfortable painting you can go and get your bed painted for about 500 for a nice paint job if you do the preping yourself.
