Rust prevention and longevity

Dear All who are concerned,
I own a 2002 F-350 7.3 diesel, regular cab and 8 foot bed. it has some surface rust and a little rot and im choosing to try and rid my truck of rot this weekend with fair weather and i was wondering if anyone has any advice on what paint to use for prevention and to actually convert the rust. also the best way to go about repairing everything. im wondering what the differences are between paints such as por-15 and other products. thank you for your time and i hope to get some good advice.

my rust is all along the frame and i have spent this past weekend taking off my bed and grinding down the back of the truck and prepping for paint but i know getting the front under the cab will be a lot more difficult

For my surface rust on frame rails, spring shackles, etc I've cleaned as best as I could and put on TWO coats of POR-15. It seems to help. POR-15 has been great on antique metal signs I collect, so I fugured it would work well for my truck.

I pressure wash my under body and frames on my trucks at high pressure. Let it dry real good and then shoot it with slightly thinned Por15. After that drys I shoot everything again with Gloss rustoleum to prevent fading. Looks great and saves the body and frame

I personally think POR-15 is some damn good stuff. used it for many things, even on the inside of my motorcycles gas tank, no problems.

I have used the duplicolor bed liner as undercoating w/great results (didnt work out so well as bed liner though)

Also X2 on POR15..that stuff is AWESOME.
