I'd look for a new one and swap it out.

Are you an experienced fabricator? If not I'd highly recommend to do a swap. Your trusting your life on those welds

Then box it in/reinforce it. POR-15 it or bed line it immediately after your completed and keep an eye on it weekly/monthly as to keep up on it as you obviously live in a rusty area

1/4 inch plate, or 3/16 or whatever you feel comfortable with. Weld the shit out of it

por15 is a rust inhibitor/ convertor. My dad used it on his van, good shit

Bedliner isn't such a good idea. If there is a crack in the bedliner moisture will be able to get in and rust will begin again.

por-15 is a paint used to stop rust. Trusso24 meant "bed line" like spray on bedliner: linex, rustoleum, duplicolor, etc.
