    I did it when the truck was new as to avoid rust altogether. I did however use the Eastwood rust encapsulator on the F550 and seemed to work well.

    Try POR-15. I've heard nothing but good things about the stuff and I have a few small cans on hand to touch up the areas where rust is beginning to develop. You can apparently paint right over the rust since the POR likes to adhere to those surfaces but they also sell a few products that can be used to prep the surface before painting.
