Tailgate Cancer

The truck I'm looking at has a small rust spot on the lower part of the tailgate, typical stepside tailgate. Have any of you guys repaired that if you got it or should i just buy a newer tailgate without the rust?

Its not that bad, heres a pic.


the dent can be pulled out so im not worried about that
