    Grey wire and keyless entry. I like stock.
    Wire wheel that shit until you see clean metal. It takes about five minutes and it'll tell you how bad the rust or grassy-knoll-crack is. Then fix it and get some rustoleum to apply after the fact. That rust isn't going to get better so might as well tackle it now.

    Haha, JB Weld is an epoxy of sorts , some call it liquid steel & it can be a great permanent fix if it bonds to the surface being treated

    Anywhere you feel it needs it. I was lucky on my NJ-born truck. When it got here, the frame was just replaced along with the front and rear suspension. That just left the axles as rusty. I pulled them both and cleaned them up and painted them. Rust is a little f#cker that you can't just paint over. Gotta clean it up and off first or you're just masking the problem. You can do the same to the frame as well you'll just have to get creative with your angles getting to the rust.

    The truck i bought actually had a brand new frame as well, but there are some parts under there that look concerning.
