Well, i used the rust converter converting rust into sandable primer and i have used rust dissolver jelly, both from walmart.

I like the dissolver type the best to be honest. The primer type doesnt have as much penetration. The jelly disolver type will turn the rust white and you are sposed to wash it off after you apply it. But i just keep it on and let it evaporate so it gets deep in there. It smells like sulfur tho!! works great and sold at walmart. It sort of looks like this

I've used the rust converter from Permatex with great results.
POR 15 is over-rated.

Permatex rust converter is sold out good auto parts stores.
I've tried it and POR, POR doesn't do any better for the extra $ it costs.

for the price or POR15 why not just have your frame sandblasted? find a company in your are that specializes in painting semi trucks. they will have a sandblast bay that you can literally drive a truck into and a 20 HP sandblaster. a complete frame from the cab back takes about 30 minutes and should cost you no more than 45 bucks to have blasted. take your truck there and have them sandblast the frame down to bare metal. then you are starting off with a known good metal. if there are any problem areas that need to be repaired, its all ready to go. i have seen several toyota frames with small cracks in them right behind the cab that you would never know about if you used POR15. better safe than sorry.

once you have it down to bare metal you can use just about any premium undercoating with good results and still come out ahead money wise.

Duplicolor Rust Fix is pretty good for simple surface rust, like for touching up spots underneath your truck. A couple applications is recommended. Be careful getting it near your face. It has some strong chemicals and will take your breath away. I got some at NAPA.

not an advocate for por 15 or anything .. but !!!

sandblasting is NOT recommended .. do some reading por15.com .... Tremclad is minimal at best !! not even ! probabaly the worst recomendation for a " keeper"

por15 recommends , just wire brushing off the flakes and brushing it on ..
