Floor rust

First off I want to thank the forum users for providing great info and being so helpful. I end up browsing this forum way more than I should but it's a good thing.
2001 SE 125k on the odometer, I lifted the carpet to find rust front drivers side , what's the best way to attack floor rust? I eventually plan on adding bedrug when complete, rear and passenger sides have no rust.

Wire wheel or hit it with a light sanding disc to get rid of as much as possible- then spray it with a rust inhibitor, let it dry for 24 hours and then hit it again....then spray a protective liner on it.

Just make sure you air the jeep out for a few days before driving it again

I'll get you the name of the stuff I have in the garage that I used when I repaired my camaro floor many years ago...it is differenent that the stuff I sprayed on the outter frame and it worked very well...6-7 years later there was zero corrosion in the area, and I only painted it with this stuff, I never added a liner ontop of it afterwards as I did not want additional weight of any sort in that car.

I will be adding a liner to the inside of my jeep for added protection as weight is not an issue to me in this car!

Looks like a few of my old pictures may not be working in that thread any longer. Here they are just in case they don't load for you.

Hey guys, first post on the forum but avid reader on the site! I have a question about rust on my driver and passenger side floor pans. Would it possible to use some sort of rust inhibitor and not paint over it for some time? I plan on lining my tub in the future but not anytime soon due to funds/time. I want to fix this rust issue ASAP. Thanks all.

Use the POR 15 Rust converter/stop process. Seals out O2 n moisture ...forever. Can hit with sledge after dry..will bounce off. Order from amazon.

you need to remove all the loose rust, but yes, just because the rust inhibitor is paintable, does not mean that you need to paint it right away...what you want to do is make sure any bare metal that you are sanding down to is covered by the inhibitor ASAP so that you do not get surface rust

Which type of rust inhibitor would you guys recommend using? I know info4tim said POR-15 but is there anything else I could use?

I use Locktite rust neutralizer, great product and it's quick and easy. Small container with built in brush that looks like spoiled milk. brush it on and in about 15 minutes it turns black and dries. Did my power steering fittings under the hood that were a bit nasty, brushed them lightly and coated them. That was it and a year later they look great.

I have used it and it's a good product, I just like the Locktite because it's great for a quick and easy spot treatment.
