Like some guys said I heard foam spray and that kind of stuff just holds water in and makes it rust more. I plan on using this stuff this summer when i clean my frame up.

The best way to coat the inside of your frame is take the frame to a galvinzer and have it acid dipped then galvenized. A friend of mine did this to his f350 frame a few years ago and it worked great. Other than that clean it out a with a powerwasher or garden hose when you wash your jeep.

The Brits have a product called Waxoyl that puts down a nice waxy film. It is used on inner panels like frames and inner rockers.

You can make your own by mixing lanolin with paint thinner.

If you want to go all out, check out Aircraft Spruce. They sell special aerosol products that are engineered to wick uphill inside all areas of an enclosed cavity and deposit a rust-inhibiting coating that flexes and deals with rust or grease already in there. They are used on older aircraft where corrosion inside a steel frame is a very expensive and dangerous condition. The aerosols are a little pricey but well worth it in terms of ease of application and piece of mind.

im going to try to bring this thread back to life, maybe get some new ideas. today I put a garden hose in the larger holes on the side and blasted it with water, then I took a shop vac and duct taped a clear plastic flexible hose onto the shop vac hose and snaked it through the frame and sucked up all the water, dirt and chunks of rust that didn't drain out, next im going to spray the inside with the eastwood internal frame coating.

That's exactly what i plan to do to my YJ when I start working on it. I already have the Eastwood internal frame coating cans in the barn. Just have to finish with my big sidewalk and retaining wall project before I get to work on the Jeep.

I hit all of the frame holes whenever I hit the car wash. When I got my Jeep, the rails were packed. I might have some rocks in there, but no more mud comes out.
