It's a common problem. I have a little myself. It's caused by the plugs at the bottom of the door and by not washing under the doors. Once I get the chance I'm gonna clean off what I can and put some por15 down. I'd have taken mine to the dealer but they gave me issues and a hassle about a rust spot under the hood since I didn't get the rustproofing warranty.

Make a sig so we know what you have. It helps when troubleshooting something or diagnosing something.

Once rust starts, unless its minor surface rust, It won't go away even if you do Bondo over it.
for the inside door, like Morris said, clean it up best you can, pull out those stinkin plugs and put some POR15 on it.

Yea, that's major. It is already coming through. You might have to do some surgeory. There have been a couple of guys on here that used the roll on liner. mine is just the edge of the metal that is folded up.

Maybe you'd be lucky enough to find two good doors at the JY that are already black?

I'd go to the Junkyard first, once you wire wheel that, your gonna be seeing the inside of that door, at least in the first picture.
the second picture isn't so bad. that you could clean up best you could and use some Rustoleum on.
As far as that first picture goes, its too far gone, just be sure to watch it, it isn't too bad yet, i've seen Rangers with plenty more rust than that on the doors survive for a while.
