I just got my f250 about 2-3 months ago and it needs some work. Everything looks great on the outside but it needs a new belt and new shocks all around and I have a lot of rust on the underbody do you have any suggestions on what to do about the rust?

There is a product that is designed to stop rust. Its used to paint barges etc. I cant remember the name of it right now but I have a gallon in the barn and will check in am. It works great, paint it on right over the rust, wire brush first, and it stops the rust in its tracks. I think its osmacote or something like that.
