I'm sorry you didn't look over the vehicle properly before purchasing, but thats you're problem. Maybe you take it back and request a new jeep with no rust?

This cant be a serious thread.. You bought a used Jeep made of metal and it has some rust underneath? :facepalm:

Rust never sleeps.

You didn't mention the year of the Jeep or what type of rust (read: surface, flaky?). Is it rusted through in spots on the frame? Just because you see rust doesn't make it a bad buy. All Jeeps eventually get rust underneath.

My '97 I purchased had plenty, but everything was sound. Spent two days underneath with a small hammer and wire brush knocking it all loose and cleaning it up.

Once you get that done you can inhibit rust from coming back with Rustoleum, or better yet, a product called "Chassis Saver," though the latter is easier for coating the undercarriage using a sprayer.

Previous poster did make one good point... why would you buy a vehicle without looking underneath? Basic purchasing. I hope you at least kicked the tires.

I'm in Memphis too and it is different for us than up north....I have a 97 and a 98 that may have a teaspoon full of rust between them. Any rust looks bad when you never see it on a vehicle...lol

For being an "Off road teacher" you sure ask some very vague and basic or inexperienced questions.

Off_Road_Teacher 08-11-2011 01:45 PM

First off, there's no need for the dumbass remarks. It's my first jeep, It was just a question seeking common info

I live in the mountains of CO. Have to deal with Mag Chloride, it makes everything rust. You can wire brush most off and use Chassie Sealer, its a black paint like material that is put on the metal and seals it forever. I've seen it on AutoGeek.Com, good luck
