It's never to late to get the truck undercoated/rust proofed. It'll help contain the corrosion that's already started and keep it from getting any worse. I drive on salted roads 7-8 months of the year and my udnerbody is in descent shape considering I only undercoat every couple years (Only drive it 25 000kms a year). A basic manual should explain how to replace CV joints. You might need more knowledge than that book provides if you're not familiar with the front end components. Sitting a vehicle is bad for prolonged period outdoors. I left a nissan 200sx in the driveway all winter due to engine problems and it needed new brake rotors come spring time along with the engine parts. Instead of it costing me a few hundred it cost me close to six.
