Fixing up a 2000 with 'Undercarriage' damage (Pictures Enclosed)

I posted a somewhat irrelated thread a few days ago regarding buying a different truck. I included some details about this truck, however I thought I'd make a general thread with pictures, etc.

Here is a 2000 F150 that I am currently have. I may just fix this and keep it provided it's a decent idea. It has 114,000, 4 wheel drive. It has an odd problem where the oil pressure guage doesn't go up (it use to), sometimes it will shoot up to normal for a while - but eventually it goes back down. I have that black out dash issue listen in the FAQ though. Prehaps the two are related.

My main concern though are the frames/undercarriage... shocks, springs, etc. I'd be curious what everyones general opinions are of what would need to be repaired to make the truck a strong daily driver. (As of now it's not.)

The pictures start at the front drivers side, go to the back, around to the rear passenger to the front and then show under the motor.

I appreciate the help.

I can see you got problems up front.....where the frame is rusted through where that bracket is........... alot of what I see is alot of surface rust, and alot of bolts are rusty. I would check all the brake lines...............
as for the oil pressure, I notice that the oil filter has been on there long enough to get rust..........that would make me wonder about the engine.....
