cjkiendzior ya i didnt think to get pics but the holes are less then dime size and that was the only problem. the underside was completely clean its just had these 2 holes towards the front of the rear tire on the driver side. if its something thats can be driven for a while without something going horribly wrong then thats fine, if its fixable. i just dont see why it would be a bad jeep because of these two holes id rather just fix them if its possible

solman It all depends on what his definition of rot is. It may just be some surface rust around one of the holes that is supposed to be there.
But I agree if it is actually rotted then stay away from it.

flatline I would not buy a jeep with a rotted frame. to much work and money to fix.
