01 bed swap, preventing rust?

ok my 01 bed is shot, got another pretty much rust free bed except some on bed supports underneath, anyways, since I have the bed off the truck, I wanting to know what people use to prevent the bedsides from rusting, just paint, rubberized undercoating, or truck bed coating?

Also, I have heard of people pulling the inner fender out and removing the fiberglass piece in there. is that the only sure fire way to stop the rusting period? any info would help. just don't wanna do this again.

my friend just put a 2012 bed on his ,before it went to the shop they had the inside treated with line ex then the whole under side was treated with Por-15 or Rust bullet not sure wich brand was used but they are all very close in what they do, the rest of the trucks underside was treated with rust neutralizer , and painted with the same stuff looks good should last along time..

is it worth pulling the inner fender out to remove the fiberglass strip in there? I have heard its better to paint the underside rather than line x it? its already line xd on the inside, just wondering about underneath. had dually fenders on it, so already welded all the holes shut on the side, if it warms up, starting body filler and prepping the outside, just wanna get the underside taken care of all at one time. what paint is most people using? heard some people using either spray rustoleum or rustoleum oil base black paint. just wanting to do this one time. haha

is the rubberized undercoating worth anything?
