Bed liner has its place, and doing things like floorboards and rockers are ok, but a frame I would rather see any damage and spot treat as needed.

Good point. What would you recommend instead?

A good coat or POR-15, Zero-rust or any other rust prohibitive coating. Then a good topcoat with an automotive paint-be careful though, as I know Zero-rust is sensitive to some paints, and so is POR-15. Do up a test piece a few weeks in advance if there is any concern.

If you can do an oil undercoat, that's the next best step, otherwise plan on doing touch ups yearly to keep the rust at bay.

Time for another update. I found that after i removed the diesel tank and reinstalled it, it leaked. First I thought it was one of the lines, but checked them and not a drop. Ended up removing the tank again and found a rusted out patch which I poked right through with a screwdriver... Welded in a new piece (yes it looks awful but it does the job, hard to weld such thin material) and applied metal epoxy to ensure it wouldn't leak. While at it I also hit the tank with a wire wheel and applied anti rust.

The next thing I started on was removing the awful plastic bedliner and some metal plates in the bed (which I have no clue what their purpose was, maybe some sort of towing device?)
Next I sanded the entire bed and removed any rust and applied primer.
I went for the Raptor U-POL bedliner which I will be applying tomorrow. I will also coat my bumpers with the bedliner since I don't like the chrome and want to give it a bit more tough look.
Also Iplan on putting bedliner on the inside of my fenders / cab corners for protection.

I'm thinking of doing a strip of bedliner from the bottom up to the first bodyline also, to protect the body when off-roading, but I'm not sure about this yet. The Raptor U-POL is also available in a tintable version, so maybe I can do something cool with it.

Next step will be upholstery and re-doing my headliner since it looks awful.
Any tips for removing the headliner? I was thinking removing the rear window since it leaks anyway and has to be re-fitted, but I don't want to damage the rubber..
I'll probably re-do the interior upholstery in a darker-red style fabric.

End of this month my fenders and cab-corner pieces will be shipped from Florida so hopefully they will arrive soon!

Apparently my truck has had an stack exhaust in the past, shame they removed it... Not sure what I'll do with the hole, I'm leaving it for the time being, might consider reinstalling the stack...

Today I replaced the starter motor since it started 'locking up' more often.
What a pain in the *** that is! Could barely get to the little bolt on the top holding it in place. Took me 2 hours just to replace the thing.

Also found out where my oil leak is coming from, it's not much but I'm afraid it will get worse over time. I'm pretty sure it's the belt-side crankshaft seal ring... Never replaced it before so I think that's gonna be a huge pain.
I will soon replace all x-joints and driveshaft center bearing just as preventive maintenance. While at it I will probably throw an engine and tranny oil/filter change as well. Then work on a way to mount motorcycles in the back (some kind of railing system) and it should be all set for holiday!

Got another question, is this stock or did someone install a body lift on my truck? (picture below)
