What debruins is saying is that when you have rusty metal and try to weld to, or on it, it splatters and eats through the metal. If the rust is bad, then the new welds will eat through the rust.
It can be done but it's a pain if the rust is bad.

As for "cleaning it" he is talking about grinding off the rust and "cleaning" the metal.
I like the Jeep though, a little work and get rid of the body lift and it would be great.
