It's my opinion that the best thing is to try and coat the INSIDE of the box frames...if that's what you have...with oil...rust on the outside is just cosmetic?

At least with the Japanese trucks that's how it works.

I was considering the Ford 300 6 4x4 as a camper truck...maybe a good thing I didn't since I can manage 25 mpg highway with the Nissan 4x4.
