    If a big one hit the gulf or East coast that truck will be worth a wad of money, if you have enough work to keep if busy you could make them a offer for it and use it?

    Re-rail. Costs money but normally don't have to dismantle the entire truck.

    More is being said about the frame rails, and I see no problem for years to come. I've removed 5th wheels on older trucks, and was horrified what was underneath them. Huge rust "tumors" that I can't believe still held. In some cases, it was the 5th wheel holding it together. I've seen lots of double frames in the dump truck business, and I don't see a problem here. Besides, you probably aren't going for max weight with a unit like this, like a rock hauler endures on every load.

    Kill that rust first if you get it. Phosperic Acid will do it.
