02TJRecovery what is the best rubberized undercoating?

crafty I used a product years ago on a different vehicle called Xtend (sp)*. This was a product developed for the old metal roof RV's and I used it on an old car that had the vinyl roof skin removed. Put it over the surface rust spots and the rust stopped. Never progressed for the years that I had the car.

I have a buddy with a CJ that swears by the POR products. Great for rust situations.

YJmcgirt I agree with jpdocdave...

Sand the undercarraige as much as possible. The go to any local autoparts store and buy a couple cans of rubberized undercoating.

I would wear really old cloths while applying and lay a tarp down and drive on top of it. The undercoating is extremely messy. If you get any on your skin be ready to spend a long time trying to get it off.

I have found this effective with both of my wranglers.

Thanks Jpdocdave

Thanks alot. There doesn't seem to be any rotting anywhere, just surface rust. I appreciate the advice and will give it a try!

jpdocdave hey jamey71, welcome to the forum. the leaf springs will be rusty, no problem there. new ones will rust within a year or so. doesn't mean they're bad. undercarriage, though theres a lot to. is there any rotted spots, or wholes? if you spray over rust it will be back less than a year. if you sand it down, clean it up and try to do a great job, prime and paint, it will still come back eventually. i would clean it up, primer, paint, and use a spray undercoating.
i'm struggling with a way of preventing this myself
let me know if this helps

Undercarriage Rust Solution?

I just bought a 1995 YJ and it has some rust on the undercarriage, leaf springs, etc. I would like to know if there are any reasonable methods for cosmetically covering the rust? Spray paint, etc?
