    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

    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.
