Rusty oil pan?

i recently bought a 2003 6.0L and the oil pan is quite rusty. I am a little concerned the rust could eat throught the pan.

I *REALLY* dont want to pull the pan off and replace it. we all know what a pain in the azz that would be. I wire brushed it ans sprayed it with rust oleum.

Anyone ever see rust go al the way through?

it happens in the snowy regions of the US. Salt and such corrodes the pan. I have seen one really severe case where it about went through. Rust o leum will help greatly. Also, to replace the pan, Motor has to come out FYI

engine doesnt have to come out of a 6.0 to replace pan, its actually not that bad of a job, as far as replacing it , as long as its not leaking and you have cleaned and painted it , dont worry about it until it does , slim chance of it happening , but i have heard of some of the older 7.3 pans doing it in northern states, and i have seen a couple 6.0's with some surface rust , but like i say , deal with it when that time comes
