Cleaning,de-rusting the whole chassis?

hey, i bought my f250 from a guy from up north and he used it in the snow alot, simpler said, the whole chassis is pretty much RUST!!!! everywere RUST!!!!!, a while ago i helped my friend de rust his 75 gto with a wire wheel, and we did the whole bottom, axles and everything, and then por15 it. Im thinking about doing it to mine to, to prevent further rust from wheeling, and from the snow, and water. it may take a long time, but it may be worth it in the end, is it a good idea? should i do it before or after i get the lift put on? has anyone done this before? thanks again guys!

i think a light sand/media blating would do a great job like raul said, it wouldnt take to long to do that and it would hurt the rubber, just bounces right off

I made a 200 pound one, means itll hold 200 pounds of media and i run it off our 185 cfm air compressor, prolly a little over kill but i use it to blast equipment and trialers to repaint and anything else i can pick up on the side. You can rent one for about 175 a day and then the media costs is about 4-6 dollars a bag for what i have used
