Wire brush probably, but you should post some pictures of your car.

I had the same problem with my yj, i used a die grinder with stone grinding tools, and more useful was an air chisel. With the air chisel you can get the pointy chisel and knock the rust off of the frame etc. I got my air chisel for 20 bucks at oreilly auto

Ya, that is true, i found that most of the flaky rust broke off when i hit it. Most of the metal parts i have found so far were manafactured thick enough that the chisel doesnt go through, some pieces were rusted enough the chisel punched through them. These parts i didnt hesitate to replace

wire brush, and some rust eliminator spray, it brings rust to a paintable stage.
I use it alot, like $6.00 a can. or if you feel frisky and have some extra cash, lift it up on all 4's rent a sand blaster and use baking soda, or almonds to do the blasting. and then use the rust equaliser spray.
