I took mine to the car wash last week and stuffed the high pressure hose on the holes in the side of the frame rail and all kinds of mud and muck blew out of all the other holes. Now the inside of my frame is mud free

Your best bet would probably be to pressure wash your frame as best you can, leave it for a few days to let everything dry real good but try not to get it to dirty while its drying. Then blow out as much of the dirt as you can with compressed air and then spray the inside and outside of the frame with a heavy undercoating or tar. It'd make it easier to put the jeep up on jack stands and remove the wheels. Plus that way you don't have to worry about getting the tar on your wheels.

I drilled a hole at the lowest point on each frame rail so water can drain out and then I power wash it occasionally, let it dry and then blow it out with an air gun.

Eastwoods has stuff specifically for rustproofing the inside of your frame. it comes with a long flexible wand that sprays in a 360 degree radius. once your frame is clean and dry, just stick this in there and spray away as you pull it out. it is a rust converter and sealer. its a new product and although i havent used it yet, im ordering it and will report back.

ok, i got two cans ordered. it says on their site that three cans will do a truck frame so two cans should do a jeep. btw, anyone else interested in trying this stuff out, its on sale for 16.99 a can. they have a video of it being applied. appears fairly simple and only a little messy. more to come once i do it.

yeah, as already forumed about ad nauseum, I too have this inside frame rot. I already ordered the Eastwood and will apply it over Memorial Day Weekend (along with about 20 other mods) so check back. I ordered 5 cans as I also expect to do new bumpers front and rear as well, and also since nothing ever seems to be enough. and more is better. I will also be drilling holes underneath about every 3 feet or so for drainage, as most of my offroading seems to be mud-related. Not that the inside rot is my fault, I've only had it since October and only off-roaded 4 or 5 times.
