There is no rust anywhere else but the whole axle.... something fishy there for sure. The wheel well liner is not lined up correctly and there seems to be what looks like a space where one of the mounting screws possibly ripped out due to an accident...
The plate over the axle only has rust in the center like it was masked and sprayed but missed it entirely, missed alot on the carrier and axle tubes ( not properly cleaned before painting... Hair in the back seat and coffee stains on door, must have been the poor souls in the truck who got creamed having breakfast on the way to work and paramedic dragging them out. Look at the door panels and see if there might be an impression, look at window seals for tears and glass particles, anything on the floor under seats around the seat mounts ( hardest place to clean glass from )
are the gaps on each side of the tailgate even ( usually not after a side impact )
