Wrangler Rust

I was thinking trading a car of mine for a wrangler, but the guy said it had a rusted frame very bad, i was seeing if it is safe to drive a wrangler with a rusted frame.

If everything else (driveline, body, interior, etc.) is okay, and it's cheap enough, get it & find a donor frame.

If it's really all that bad, I wouldn't drive it that way though.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

There is lots of great advice on this forum. For example, a screw driver is your friend when purchasing a YJ. Poke around on the frame with the screw driver. Is it surface rust? They all get that. Is it RUST-RUST? You want to ascertain is the frame intact. Special areas requiring special attention: Around the front horns and steering box. The long rails from the rear spring mount to the fenderwell. The rear of the jeep around the gas tank. The rear bumper mount area. Poke em, prod em, then make a decision.

Rub the hx of this vehicle. Was it a northern salt area jeep? If the frame is toast, EL PASO.\

In well due respect to Mean Max. A body off can easily be done, if YOU have the skills. If you have to pay for it, pass on this jeep.

She's going to bury me in this thing.
