I can't find any rust on mine. The previous owner did the "Chassis Saver" spray under it, so maybe there is rust forming under there that I can't see. $8,000 is a lot, sure, but aside from the rust it's like getting a brand new ZJ for far less than the cost of a newer vehicle. New engine, rebuilt transmission and transfer case. If I drop $10,000 on a 2005 Wrangler I essentially just paid $10,000 for a metal tub and am going to have to replace much of the same things. At least, this is my thinking. Please feel free to sway my opinion, lol. I need a reliable 4x4 vehicle, but looking at the prices of buying a new 2005 Wrangler I feel like I'm just wasting money. At the same time, I don't want to drop $8,000 into my ZJ only to have regrets, later.
