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?

... Not too worried about the top of the frame rails or the small contact areas where the bed meets the frame...
Actually, that IS a place to worry about as you can't regularly reach it with a pressure washer/hose and any salt/sand/mud will collect up there. I would suggest trying to get up there.
