Smile A little help with por-15

Hello all! This is my first post! I recentley (in the past two days) purchased a 2005 TJ unlimited that has the extended body. It has a 4" suspension lift and 33 x 12 (I believe) tires. I currently dont have the jeep, as I need to drive 3 hours to pick it up. There is some minimal surface rust on the chassis which really bothers me. I was hoping to here soon get some por-15 and follow the steps to stop the rust (or make it atleast look better for a few years). I read somewhere on this forum that all parts that have rust need to be coated for the por-15 to work correctly. Now my big question is, will I be able to paint my entire chassis? or will the body have to be removed? If it does have to be removed how hard is it? are there any tutorials to help? Also all non-moving parts can be coated?

I am new to all of this and this is my first Jeep ever. I also noticed some rust on a part for the lift suspension. I dont know the name of the part but it was a cylinder shape right behind the tire. Can I also use por-15 on this?

Sorry for all the newbie questions but I couldnt find all of the answers searching on here.

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks for taking time to read and help!

umm por-15 is some nasty great stuff! I would hit the rust spots with wire brush on a drill or air drill first. Knock as much rust off the frame as you can then you just a paint brush and brush the stuff right on. Follow the directions for the por-15 and it will work great. You can also once the por 15 dries paint over it with rattle can (rustoleum) < great idea too do also. You can paint all non moving parts with por-15. You don't need to do it with the tub/body off. The cylinder your talking about is the shock. You can paint the bottom side of that DO NOT paint OR get any paint on the shiny piston that moves in and out of the base.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
