Anyone know best way to help clean up/prevent rust from the bottom front axle. Such as what type of spray paint(s) if any could be used to help touch it up. I know jeeps are meant to be roughed up..but I have a real nick for keeping my rig looking nice when I’m not on the trails

Thank's in advance.

I've had good results with Klean-Strip Rust Converter. I got it from the local AutoZone.

POR 15 rust inhibiting paint. It's pricey, but it does exactly what it claims to do; however, prep is still the most important part.

clean up= Navel Jelly, you can get it at home depot in the paint section, that stuff works great. as far as protectant rustolum (I think thats how its spelled) also at HD.
Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.

Take a wire brush (or a wire wheel if you have grinder )to it. That will take care of the rust then just get a can of flat black primer.
There is someone in my head but it's not me

Brush on mineral oil and let it slowly rinse off with the elements. Conversely you could use old motor oil with a bit of gas mixed and brush it on. Learned these techniques from grand dad 25+ yrs. ago and they still work to this day. If you'd like you can wipe the excess oil off after a while. I dont bother. I do this to the jeep reguarly and the bolts and components still loog pretty clean.
