TJ frames rot because of the "strap down" holes in the frame. They are there so that the vehicles can be strapped down for shipping. The holes happen to be right next to the wheels in a few cases. The holes allow everything the wheels kick up to enter the frame. All that crap gets in there and has no way to dry so it stays wet. Wetness plus metal equals rust. I didn't want to do this but over the weekend I drilled a 2 inch hole in my frame and vacuumed the **** out of it. Worked really well. Welded a patch on and painted it, you'd never even know I did it! Might not be the best way to clean out the frame, but it's a jeep! Good luck with the recall (honestly... Not trying to be a smart *** like the other people who can't seem to just be nice to a fellow jeeper)

I am surprised that that kind of behavior is allowed on here. I actually thought I was on Pirate after reading some of these posts. Some forums would have banned the flamers by now. Too bad people have to stoop to name calling. Some of these people don't even live in a severe salt belt area and probably have no idea what you are talking about because they don't know what rust or rot is.

I too, do wish you luck. I don't think frames should be a maintenance item and yes, they do have problems, just like the fenders. I know you have to clean more up here in the salt belt but they should engineer stuff better for areas like this because they are sold here too. If some companies are offering 10 years/100k miles warranties on body rust through and that is just thin gauge steel, then I would think 1/8+" frames should be able to last much longer. Frames need to be solid more than the bodies do because everything is riding on them(sounds like a Michelin commercial

It is too bad people can't drive or don't have Jeeps then we would not need to salt the roads. Heck with the amount of money saved from buying, stockpiling, moving, spreading, and sweeping up the stuff, you could train people on how to drive in the stuff and just make snow tires, studs, or chains mandatory in designated areas. The stuff just depreciate our vehicles, makes it so you can't see out the windows, dries out rubber parts(including wiper blades, so we can see even less). Sorry, got side tracked--rant over

It a down right shame with the hard earned money you pay for these things and the frame will rust out and soon fall to the ground. Jeep should show a bit of pride in there product and recall rusted frames. It's a huge design flaw, large holes in the side of the frame and no drain holes on the bottom, come on??? My jeep looks awesome, with 50k miles and now won't pass inspection with a rusted frame, structurally UNSAFE!!!

I love my Jeep but will NEVER EVER BUY another one...

all I got to say is - buy whatever floats your boat. I doubt you get a lot of folks willing to give up their Jeeps.

do you drive on the beach a lot? drive through salted snow?
my JK is only 8 years old and the underneath looks as good as it did when new.

2000 Jeep Wrangler with lift kit help??

Hi
My husband has a 2000 jeep wrangler and found out it needs uni-rail both sides front to back of cabin and frame in back behind bumper rotted out and also fuel tank skid plate. This has a lift kit and just bought wrap around back fenders and front specialty fenders all else is good. My question is is this repair worth it and does anyone know costs on this kind of work. I have looked for a frame and no one around here has one. Any help with honesty would be great

My wrangler is a 2002 and very well maintained, NEVER taken of road and wife has drove back and forth to work since we have owned it. That being said the frame at the transfer case mounts is badly rusted due to water being held inside of frame. From what I have seen all of these TJ's are like this..

I have to disagree here. Vehicles rust bad in this area (mn) and there is nothing you can do to prevent it except not to drive it in the winter.
