2x's that! I can absolutely relate.
When I bought my TJ I had no idea how quickly the small openings that were made (prior to my purchase) to access the skid mount nuts in the rails, would form rust. It literally had me in a panic (hahaa) Found a professional welder to clean and patch them up. Ultimately finishing them w Eastwood internal frame coating. Still, being in the NE, I can't help but think it's just a matter of time till the rust returns. Here, in NJ, we ran out of salt this year for f-sake! The amount they coat the roads with is literally crazy. Now I keep a close eye on my undercarriage will be cleaning and re coating in the next few weeks.
Best to you, man! Get that frame done- and don't forget to post photos. I love seeing rust before and afters.
