NO not at all. If you want rust free buy a truck from down here in the south and drive it back. My buddy sold his 01, ECSB, 7.3, 6pd with 123K miles for $9,500. It was a lariat, with programmer, exhaust, intake, intercooler, clutch, gauges, toolbox, gooseneck, bumper, and side steps. Plus new dealer paint after hail damage. Still had clean title and was never wrecked.
My point is that clean rust free trucks can be had for half that... they are only 800-1200 miles south of you. I would get with a truck depot or broker out of Texas. There are a TON of clean low mileage cowboy caddy’s down there.
