What he said, if its a 2001, just covering up the rust with undercoating won't do any good. If it was not coated from new, then you have to fix the rust, then coat
Oil sprays are not too bad, to stop the spread, but you have to repeat it because it wears off.

This would ideal for a frame up restoration. I guess the term "undercoating" wasn`t exactly what I should have said. Anyone heard of using bar and chain oil as a method to keep the salt at bay?

Well

You can do something proactive, go to eastwoods and buy a few qts and aerosol cans of Rust Encapsulator, and chasis black epoxy paint. Also get some Rust converter.

Wash the underside of your jeep, simple green and a brush and some beer for you works well.

Get it as clean as possible, the use the converter on any heavily rusted areas.

Then top coat with the Rust encapsulator every where, then coat with the chasis black.

Lastly they aslo have a heavy duty anti rust which is a heavy wax coating spray that on last.

You could also buy some of their interior frame coating, spray that inside the subframes and rocker panels, they come with a flexible wand.

Lastly buy some Eureka FLuid film and flood all your doors, hatch and nooks and crannies with that, it will run and drip out but keep the moisture and rust at bay.

Fluid film at autozone works good as a light oil spray.

Or a can of stabol fogging oil.

I'm in the process of doing an underside rust restoration project on my 2004 in the below thread using the Eastwood products. Have only done the inside/outside rockers using their internal frame coating as can be seen in the photos. Also refurbished the running boards and have a few other outside/house projects slowing me down. I best hurry it up if I'm going to beat the cold/wet weather.

I'll soon be investing in some Fluid Film, I've heard nothing but great things about it.
