Truck Frame rust

I was wondering what works for frame rust. I see all kind of sprays but that seems like a touch up and more preventive.

Would the best way to remove rust be a wire brush, belt sander, or sandblast?

I would think any kind of metal grinder would take more then rust off and could cause problems.

Restrorob is correct. POR-15 is about the best you can get to stop rusting. I put it on the battery holder on an old Ford tractor and an 85 F150., In the 4 years after that I never saw a spot of rust where it had been applied. You have to follow the directions closely to get good results but, I think, it's worth it

I heard about por but I thought I still had to prep the frame.

If you have loose/flaking rust clean with a scraper/putty knife, It adheres to a rougher surface better than a smooth surface. Yes, It's a bit expensive but is not considered a patch job and last many years......

Its not expensive when considering the amount of labor that it would take to fix it with tools.
