So after playing with it some more. I have come to the conclusion that not only was this jeep from up north, but water had come up between the cracks in the floor pan and sat underneath the factory caulk. Where there is heavy caulking, it was rusted pretty bad. Unfortunately that happened on the floor near the wheels. If you look the picture from the rear of the Jeep in my previous post, all of that which is rusted was covered by caulk. As of now I am trying to pull up all the caulk in the Jeep, and the front leaf mounts are worse than I expected. Just wish I knew how to weld.
