I am thinking of buying a 97 TJ but there is a rust spot on the back. Was wondering if this is bad beyond repair or if its fixable and also is it something that would make this jeep something to shy away from and try to find another one?
I have the exact same rust spot but on the other side. I've already got it down to metal and just has to be primed. It was really easy. What are the jeep's specs and price then ill let you know if its worth it
Def. fixable. Even if it's happen to have gone all the way through the boxed body mount is right behind that panel. I had a major rust spot there, small amount ate through but just filled over it because the body mount is right there.
