Rusted/Rotten frame

I'm looking to see what everybodys opinions are on my frame. Would you fix or replace? Also, in the pic of the hitch ball, what's all that stuff coming off around it??? Really getting worried about the condition of it all. Thanks everyone.

Wow I’ve never seen that on a vehicle. A lot of corrosion. I personally wouldn’t use the gooseneck hitch to pull anything. I’d make one additional recommendation, and that is to buy ACF50. For areas that large, just buy the gallon instead of the aerosol. Go down to harbor freight and buy a cheap paint gun to apply it with. I personally like the scent, but wear a respirator, and take a shower after applying it. While it won’t magically repair the damage, it will stop it and prevent further corrosion. FYI it works great on battery terminals as well.

Replace if you have the love for it.

Their to far gone to save, you can spray what ever on it to slow it down, but those pics from judgment look to far gone, it's not going away.

Pull the bed and go after it. Got a chance still.

Looks like it's getting into your cab mount correct?

Another reminder of considering putting under coatings on your trucks.

Twood, I've looked all over youtube for a complete bed removal and all the videos are pretty bad. I have alldata, but nothing is as good as real picture/video instead of the alldata "drawings".

love what the rust belt does to vehicles.
I'd buy a wrecked/roller and swap it all, if you want to run the truck for 10 years.

if not, I'd get rid of it

1. swap the vehicle for another. its not worth swapping frames/bodies on that truck.
2. when you get your other truck preferably from another area spray the frame, suspension, axels, and everything metal with woolwax. once a year. Its very popular. imagine chapstick for metal. it lays a semi wet film over the metal.

It will STOP current rust and prevent any further corrosion but it wont remove it to look pretty. I started using it when I brought my clean rust free CA truck to Idaho where they use salt/brine fluid and de icing fluid and it eats cars up around here. 3 yrs later my truck is 99% rust free.

Buy their basic spray gun and either the 4 quart cans or 1 gallon and just spray your truck every year on the spots that get rubbed off. gently rinse it off few times a winter too and it will dramatically reduce any corrosion from all the winter sprays.

it does make everything under your truck waxy but trust me. its worth it to not be dealing with snapping bolts all the time. Its gotten so popular ive got friends and family and strangers asking me how my 1999 is rust free and now im spraying rigs on the weekends lol.

Well it sounds like I'm totally f***ed since I don't have money to buy any other vehicle and who would I sell my truck to in this condition? I'd be lucky to get $1k with the bed frame rotten like it is.

You can buy new bed crossmembers, the very front and very back one are sold seperatly though. Or find a takeoff bed and swap it out. While the bed is off, wire wheel the frame and hit it with POR 15, get those cab mounts too.

most of those pictures look like they're of the bed support rails, the 4th one is hard to tell

dorman makes a kit for 400 bucks that has all the replacement rails if you have the means to weld them on after cutting off the old ones
