Bedline the interior and make sure you wash your frame off whenever it sees salt. One of those old school rainbow back and fourth sprinklers under the frame works for most.

Yep! Line the tub with the best bedliner you can afford. Don't get too caught up in which is "better" then the others: they all do the same thing in the end. Other then that, keeping her clean is the best way to keep it under control. You can POR-15 the frame and stuff...make it easier, in the end. Lot's of little tips and tricks around here if you do a search....good luck!

I am in the habit of rattle 'canning my frame every spring..seems to be keeping the rust away.

^+1, a $5.00 can of POR-15 Chassis Coat and an hour of time each summer is a good idea.

Had the same issue. Mine was outside, doorless for a long time. I cut the carpet out around the footwells, and rattle can (Rustoleum) bedlined the front and rear footwells with a few coats. Now standing water just evaporates with no mildew. If there's a big puddle, I park on a decline, letting the water flow forward to the drain holes. :-)

Eastwood makes a good product. I used two cans of Rust Encapsulator, 1 can for each side of the frame using the holes for spraying inside. Concentrated on the inside, outside doesn't even have surface rust.
