I see this generation RAM all over the place with this same rust out pattern. It's a design flaw and a common well known problem. All vehicles have them.

And don't count on that warranty. My neighbor's RAM was not covered. It was not wrecked, nothing aftermarket was used. He eventually got a new bed, but I don't know who paid for it. Shortly after that he got rid of it. They didn't need a PU anymore (they sold their TT) so they bought a Nissan instead. Mind you this guy has Mopar in his blood. He's in a Mopar club and owns a beautiful '69 Super Bee (you should see our street when the club comes over for a party!) and they have a Jeep Cherokee. So I was very surprised to see them jump brands.

All that said I can't imagine that RAM would not have fixed this in newer models. Quite honestly, I wouldn't hesitate to buy any brand of truck. For me it all boils down to what the features are and if we like driving it.

They all rust if you don't take care of them. Thousands of web results.

I have a guy at work that had his Toyota Tacoma frame rot to nothing. The cab looked mint. Did a quick search and they had a recall on it. Some scary stuff..

Some rust is benificial as long as it can dry out. You get rust through from holding wet debries. There are 100 year old rusty barn roofs all over america. Paint can lift or lose adhesion to a surface and create a rust out condition where if it were left unpainted it would surface rust and then rust no more. Chemical rusting is a rust preventative method used to color metals and prevent further rust.

Rust gets a bad rap. What needs a bad rap is poor design where metals meet and form pockets that hold bits of dirt and remain wet all the time. That will rust out anything.

I don't believe that this thread is what the JOF is about and that the way this thread was turned by an individual who is no doubt angry at Cummins and this thread should be killed.
