Take a close look

If the end of the frame rail is that rusted then the rest of the rail is suspect as well. Take a phillips head screwdriver an give it some good hard tap all along the length of the rail....if it goes through you have a problem. Even though the rail might look good on the outside, the inside could be very weakened. I am in the middle of replacing my rails now, I am using MIG welding. As a matter of a fact I just welded the very area you are talking about. I have the resto pics on a web site take a look

Take a good honest look at the rest of the rail, it could be unsafe. Can you look down inside it with a flashlight?

Good luck.
