Now is the time to start abating before it gets bad. Pull the rear bumper and paint the rear cross member. Pull the transmission crossmember and check for holes behind it. Replace the fuel tank skid plate. Pull the bottom seal for the tailgate and replace the screws with aluminium pop rivits. Fill the frame with waxoyl or similar. Put rubber strips behind the metal brackets. Consider replacing or painting the front shock towers. Make sure there is no built up dirt or mud anywhere on the frame.

What Ron and JimC said...

The middle crossmember under the tranny will trap moister between itself and the frame...it is a PITA to remove, I used the bottle jack and some wood blocks to spread the frame just enough to allow the crossmember to drop out. Grind away what rust you find and what you can't grind away, treat it with a rust arresting solvent, then paint it...

Good luck...
