think its time for the Jeep to be retired

The rear leaf springs are poking up through the floor and the rear rails have rusted all the way through bout 7 inches from the back of the Jeep everything has become so loose the tailgate will not shut right anymore.

Unless anyone has any creative ides to save this I think its time to give up I'm not against a sawzall and back halfing but I have to atleast make it sturdy enough for the springs.

Come on out to the desert southwest to buy the replacement XJ. You can still get a great deal on one, and it's most likely entirely rust-free. Mine's got 220,000 miles on it, and there isn't a bolt on it that won't come off like it ought to. Original exhaust. No rust anywhere, so as long as I can keep twisting wrenches, it'll keep on rolling. The only down side is that the paint (and sometimes the interior) can be pretty well-cooked (mine's been repainted twice, though the interior is clean because of dark tint and windshield shades).

Just get a stock, unhacked XJ and transfer all your nice parts over, and you're good for many years to come!
