    I need help! I’m looking to purchase a used 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sport with 90k km and I’m not sure if there’s too much rust or if this is worth the purchase. I live in GTA and this vehicle is listed for $30k
  2. YJ Tech Forum
    What's your preference on a product to stop existing rust and to prevent new rust both on and in the frame? I'm doing a rebuild on an 87 YJ. Got a crap load of rust. I'm cutting off rusty sections of frame and welding on new steel, also replacing floor pans. Just looking for your input on the...

    What's your preferred DIY rust inhibitor to combat current rust and also to prevent future rust? Spray, roll on?
  4. YJ General Discussion Forum
    Hello, What are recommendations on fixing this floorpan issue? Have you had this issue? Is it worth spending time/money to try and clear all the rust out? (Floorpan, Side panel near Jeep logo, Plus any additional rust around the floorpan area) Or should I just do a patch job? (Patch the hole...

    Is it a viable option to cut out or cut off the second panel underneath the front fenders that catches dirt and water? I believe the panel is in place to stop the flat fender from "oil canning" (popping up and down like a sealer jar lid). Will the fender be too weak without this panel? Should...

    I have had a few TJ’s/YJ’s over the years, and usually daily drive an F-150. I am looking to sell my truck and daily drive a JK or JKU. Unfortunately I live in the heart of the rust belt, so I am trying to find a southern Jeep. I found a 2011 JKU auto at my local Carmax for $19.5k, but it has...

    I have a 2008 2 door JK with the 3.8 engine. The engine itself is really rusty above the upper oil pan on the driver side kinda where the dip stick goes in. It is crusty and I can pull decent size chunks of rust off. I searched everywhere on the internet and cannot find anyone else having this...

    I live right by the ocean and everything on my build is rusting incredibly fast. I'm going to make a pass with some grease but I was wondering if anyone could recommend a cover for a lifted and modified JKU. I'm having trouble finding anything that will cover it top to bottom. Most of the time...

Just passed on a personal seller whos 05 had obvious oil leak he was not disclosing . So I found 06 Rubicon I plan to go and look at tomorrow. One of...
  10. TJ General Discussion Forum
    Hello Everyone, I was looking at a 2003 Wrangler X with 60K miles (4.0L, manual, soft top, no lift) that overall looks pretty good and drives well. From what I've read, I understand that rust is the main thing to be concerned about so I took some pictures underneath the Jeep. I don't have...
  11. TJ Tech Forum
    Thinking of buying 2002 TJ with 84000 miles Its got some rust like you would expect, but over all the frame looks really solid. Some of the other pieces have some rust, a few looks bad, but I don't have enough of an understanding of what I am looking at. If it is less than a thousand to fix, or...

    I recently purchased the Teraflex 2.5" coil lift kit and when the kit arrived in the mail I noticed a couple small nicks in the powder coating on some of the springs. Some of the nicks look like they're deep enough to go through the powder coating and expose the metal underneath. I've scheduled...

    Hello everyone, I have an 04 LJ that has been my ride or die for the last 8 years. Somewhere around 4 years ago, I noticed the stock diamond plating on my rockers were starting to show some rust on the outside and that some rust-colored water was coming from behind them. I pulled the plates...

    Looking at purchasing my first wrangler. Does the bottom of this thing show any areas of concern? I don’t know what I am looking for. Thank you so much!

    Hola all- been looking into joining the Jeep Wrangler family to have a summer car. Make good money but like most millennial - student debt out the ass. Was looking at wranglers under 6K in NJ which was a farce - every single one had tons of issues. I increased my budget to 10K at this point and...
  18. JK General Discussion Forum
    What‘s the most cost-effective way to treat this surface rust? They are only a year old (but were purchased second-hand, so no warranty would apply), and it turns out DV8 doesn’t have very good powdercoating or sealing. What products would you guys use to treat this so it doesn’t come back every...

    Im looking to buy my first Jeep Wrangler, but I have been noticing alot of rust on the cheaper ones I go to visit. I recently saw a 2010 Unlimited Sahara, but it had a lot of rust. Maybe this is to be expected..but I thought I would post a few pictures to see what this community of people would...

    2016 JKUR, 40k miles. All of my hinges (body side) look like the attached picture. I started noticing faint rust probably around 2018. I was getting recall work done and brought it to the service managers attention who told me to wait and see if it got worse since hinges were tricky and...
