No such thing. You don't "stop" rust. You eliminate/remove rust. Which means cutting and/or replacing. End of story. If you got "usual ford rust" as in wheel wells, you can get away with cut-out fender flares. (Again cutting) If it's the doors or something, take it to a shop unless you got one.

If it's the doors you pour some oil inside the door, other than that you will just heve to buy either new bed sides, a new bed, or doors...........Or just look at and cry. It dosent do much good to cut the the fenders out and try to repair the rust on the bed becouse 9 times out of 10 it will be back with in a few years.
Sorry to tell ya but I know how you feel.

Yes they will be, I had to replace both of mine for the same reason.

And the only way to stop the rust is to fix it
