Before you pull the body do the repairs...start with the body mounts. Its important to brace the door jambs if you do. Let me ask this ,whats it matter ? a couple rust holes or a giant rust hole ,the rocker still needs changing it;ll be a lot easier to get it off..Rockers and floors can look complicated but in reality they are not. especially on a full frame car like yours.So dont stop now, this is where the fun starts,pull the seat and the carpet then the interior panels and start cutting (with a sawzall) do you have an air chisel ? you'll be giving them both a workout...
I dont mean to scare you off but have you looked at the other side yet
