I'm going to check out this $5.2k seemingly awesome deal for a '98 already modified TJ near me, but I have concerns about a rusty frame. In the pics, I notice a little rust on the lift kit and possibly a little on the frame.

Now... I've never dealt with rust before so I don't know how big of an issue it is or how bad is 'too' bad. Can you guys look at the one picture that shows the lift an tell me if that's going to be an issue or if I can fix it with like pro-15 or something along those lines.

I'm going to see it in about 6-7 hours so any reply would be great.

Thanks!

I can't really see any rust from those pictures..? Did you notice any more in person? Unless the frame is really bad, that looks like a screaming deal and I wouldn't wait long to put money down

Rust starts to be a problem when it starts to make structural parts weaker....
Chunks flaking off.... holes... etc....

If in doubt, hit it with a hammer.... if you can make a hole it's BAD
