Welcome X2. The underside looks real clean. Surface rust in small spots on your frame. Wire brush, sand and recoat with a good rust converter/ paint and you will be in great shape. Takes a little elbow grease, but that is just a part of the "Pride of Ownership" of a Jeep. I used POR15 on my entire frame, but it was significantly worse that yours. Good luck and have fun!
I very much appreciate your inputs and hope one day to be able to contribute back to the group!
Your inputs are encouraging on this. I have another concern on this particular jeep - the jeep was reportedly in an accident that resulted in "structural damage". The frame however looks good according to my friend who has previewed it for me (I travel and am out of state currently) and holds a line at 45mph or so (riding on bfg 32") so mo apparent frame bend.
I had a buddy check out a jeep for me, he said go for it so I gave him the money and bought it sight unseen. Turns out it had a R title do to a collision. I could care less everything is good and it drives staight as an arrow. Haven't had any problems at all
looks very clean. I just installed some nerf bars for this guy I met on craigs list and I could literally poke my finger through certin spots on his frame....A 98 btw. I told him..." Buddy I get that frame looked at before I worried about these nerf bars"
