More info than you asked for...
3M Rust Fighter 1 part number 08892 works well for this stuff. It is sold as an internal body panel protection wax, but I have found it works quite well anywhere. It goes on thin and quite viscous, so it can penetrate deep, but goos up thick and stays in place after the volatiles evaporate out. However on hot days when parked in the sun, it gets slightly viscous again and will flow a little... so it can recover and reseal. Also has little to no odor once applied and dry.
A good price for it these days is $13 - $14 for the 18 3/4 oz aerosol cans... Buy 3 or 4 cans, put on some old cloths/safety glasses/maybe a dust mask and go nuts. Inside the frame, all hardware, pop the plugs on the body panels and fog it in there... any seam you can find on or under the truck. Remember, if Toyotas didn't rust away, they all still be driving around.
