Great John! Looks like some rust? Did it get the body or just the paint bro?

Only if your going to sell it....... Bondo is a filler not a patch and it wont stop your jeep from rusting. My brothers CJ had a few holes bondoed up and I told him do fix it right but he said it would be fine..... Two years later we had to replace the tub.

I had the same color YJ Sahara about a year ago. haha. looks great man. I can't wait to get mine off the ground like that. How is the Rubicon Express Lift holding up for you? I'm in the process of shopping around for one right now.

Is that YJ gold? I've only seen one other gold wrangler and it was a TJ...Are those homebrew rockers?

shaggyjim thanks for the input that rules out bondo

green89yj the rubicon springs i have heard are the best for the money, im very happy with it, it flexs really nice ill get a picture when i remember my camera

zekeman023 the color is called metallic khaki and on the rockers i have none on there now, but when it was stock that was how it came

so its been awhile sorry.. i had to get a second job so no time to work on the jeep

so last night when i was heading home i went to stop at a red light and the brake pedal went all the way to the floor! but i got it stop then i pumped the brakes and the pressure built back up when i was stopped then once i got going i lost pressure and the passenger side brakes made this sound like the tire was rubbing on the fender??? i believe the brake locked up because it kept pulling in spurts to the right? im very confused on it i have not had time to really look . would some one maybe point me in the right direction of what to look for?

thanks
john

bondo is meant to be used as a filler to make everything straight. Weld in some new sheet metal, than apply the bondo to smooth out the surface to match the surrounding steel. The thinner the better
