That looks like surface rust but I hate any kind of rust. Be sure and check inside the frame rails for rust.

Frame as far as I can tell has minimal surface oxidation, areas I can feel inside frame rails feel smooth, no flaking or ruff areas, cant really check entire frame but may want to be proactive with an anti-rust product, not sure what that would be but I will do some research, thanks for the advise, need all I can get

Don't apply the Ospho on installed rusted hardware. I'm not sure but it may chemically "weld' the hardware together. Just remove the hardware, treat the rusted area and get new hardware.

all hardware has been removed from frame, very happy to see how clean the frame is after removing the long arm lift, should be easy to clean and treat any areas along the spot welded seams that need it. not sure if I should be posting this info in this section, let me know if theirs a better section, and thanks for the advise.

Very nice, I have an 06 not near as clean as yours. Will defenitly try Ospho and POR when longer days return. No heat in garage! I was wondering the best way to do inside of frame. My apology if this hijacking a thread. Figured its the same topic?

I suppose you could put the Ospho in a garden sprayer or a siphon attachment and air hose. Then blow it out with a pressure washer after it dries? I don't think we've ever discussed that before.

no apologies needed, while I was researching what to use for a rust converter I ran across a product called Eastwood internal frame treatment (same company that produces POR-15), comes in a spray can along with a small hose with a nozzle on the end, the idea is you insert the hose where you can along the frame and it mists the inside of the frame. http://www.eastwood.com/internal-fra...lack-14oz.html theirs a demo video, it looks like it works quite well to cover inside of frame. cant say how well it protects.

update on the clean up/rust treatment project, drivers side area around floor support (torque box) has been wire wheeled and all surrounding areas cleaned and an aggressive scrubbing done. In the affected areas, applied Ospho rust converter. areas that had significant surface rust bubbled and foamed soon after application, will let dry over night as directed and hopefully paint tomorrow.
