What to paint frame with?

i just purchased a 07 JK and i wanted to paint the frame to ensure that no rust appears or causes it to rot like the YJ frames. what should i use to paint it with to make sure this doesnt happen?

I would use POR15. It is pricey but for what your looking to do with preventing rust it is the way to go. U cld even manipulate the wand on a pump action sprayer ( for like weed spray ) to get the inside of the frame.

POR15, and then a topcoat in whatever colour you want (If you don't want to keep it black)
