Clean that frame up GOOD or that pretty tub is useless. Do the following:

Place jack stands under both axles and remove wheels
Support transmission and pull the skid plate
Grind down as much of the rust as you can and clean clean clean
Spray a couple coats of primer
Spray a couple coats of Krylon enamel paint
Hit all sides of the frame
Go for the axles/steering next if you want

Now go get some tires.

Looking good so far! Great to see you started your own build thread. It will be fun to see the progress you've made when your Jeep looks totally different down the road. Keep us posted with more pics dude! BTW, I got your PM about the KC's...

future plans include a rough country 3.25 lift and a 1.25 body lift roll some 33's under it have the front windows retinted darker..aand a few other odds and ends that i cant think of off the top of my head but only time will tell exactly what happens to it and for the rust i just put a couple coats of paint on it last night just to make it through the rest of the winter then once spring gets here im going to take that rust head on cause it def needs some attention the jeep came out of michigan if that tells you anything...

alright so my check engine light came on and the code is p0432 main catalyst below threshold (bank 2) and i took it to the dealership and they replaced my 02 sensors well that same day it came back on same code so im thinking it has to be the cat ive tried callign the dealership twice and they will not replace the cats they say they dont have the money to replace them so now im stuck getting 13 miles to the gallon and no money to buy the 500 dollar cats so my question is has anyone done a cat delete and bought the dummy o2 sensors/02 simulators and where can i get this???
