I had the same problem on my 95 and I build a replacement bed out of 2x4's. Most of the beds you would find will have the same problems you are having with the current one. Your lucky in that the frame is't rusting too. The bodys and frames go on these trucks long before the driveline.

I have a 98 Nissan maxima and main brace under motor going to the front is rusted brace is OK but what it bolts to is rusted how do I fix


go to a wreckers that handles your make of vehicle and buy that section complete ( rust free unit)
drill out the spot welds where the rust unit is attached to the body sub frame
do the same for the new section
position the new section in place against the sub frame and you have 2 options her
either weld the parts back together ( best get a qualified welder to do this)
or drill holes and use grade 8 bolts to bolt the sections together
remember that it is an integral part of the sub-frame so it has to be done properly for safety

How do I fix extensive rusting under my 2003 nissan pathfinder, I am really worried, please what do I do?


There is a paint on rust converter . You paint it on the rust and it turns it back into metal . After that i would spray the rubberized under coating to protect it.

HOW TO GET RID OF WATER RUST ON A 97 4 RUNNER


there are several ways to stop frame rust but it needs to have all existing rust removed before its treated. if not its like putting a band aid on a gunshot wound, it will only mask the problem. spraying a good coat of under coating or even spray on bed liner once the rust is removed will greatly slow it down. there are also treatment sprays that inhibit rust but on a large scale can be very expensive

Frame rails rusted badly over rear end. any fixes /


unfortunately no, with a rusted through frame the vehicle most likely will not pass inspection if the mechanic does their job.

There is really rust issure on the rear wheelwells on the box, how can i fix it without going to an autobody shop? Would like to try to fix it myself but don't know which direction to turn


Well, you could buy a wire welder and weld new metal on to the rusted out areas. This will set you back $150 to $350 though to buy it. Maybe you can find someone to rent the machine to you to weld metal onto the rust areas.

Or, you could replace the bed which will come with newer or new metal compared to what you have.

What do you mean by 'on the box'? Do you mean the frame is rusted?

Rear leaf spring supports are completly rusted through. How much can i haul in the bed before i get it fixed? When i say rusted throughj i mean it! The left side has about 1cm split in it and the right is...


Those rear shackle mounts are a very common rust area on older ford trucks. I agree with Mcgyver, I wouldn't drive the truck much, let a lone haul anything in the bed. When it goes, the leaf spring will be resting on the underside of the bed. They aren't TOO difficult to replace if you have an air hammer and some patience. Parts all also readily available from the dealer. Shouldn't run you more then $100 or so.
