Pan rust

Just did an oil change on my VG33 this morning. My oil pan is really rusted at the seams. Has anyone ever seen one of these actually rust apart? Thinking I should replace it before catastrophe occurs.

I assume it's a ***** to replace like everything else on the truck right, like the bar that crosses underneath has to be removed? Any other gotchas?

Yes, very familiar with POR-15; been using it on mower decks for years.

Funny timing, as I just started the process of POR-15-ing my truck's frame. This past weekend I did from the rear axle back.

I'd thought of doing my oil pan but I'm almost afraid of scraping too hard. It's the welds that join the two pieces where the rust is, mostly.
I've been thinking about using it on my axle back, the spare tire area is pretty rusted.. did you pull off your bed?
