Rust

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.

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.

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.
