Rusted Out Bed

My e99 truck bed is rusted out beyond economical repair (wheel wells, floor, and floor supports all rusted through). I know this is a common issue on these trucks and alot of people opt for a newer year truck bed as a replacement. I was reading where alot of problems with the wheel well rust is thought to be caused by some sort of foam sealer behind the wheel arch that tends to holds moisture against the metal. When I start looking for a replacement bed, is there a particular year that Ford stopped using this foam sealer in their beds?

I have a 2002 f250 and a 2006 ford f350 and they both have it. 02 has holes starting, 06 has nothing yet, but the truck has low miles. I have see people cut out the inner support fender and do with out it, looks like a good fix. See how it lasts

Ford has not stopped the foam. Foam causes rust. Rust causes new trucks to be sold. Profit

Bummer news. I was sure they would have gotten rid of it within a couple of years after they realized what the problem was.
