Whats the best way to clean the underbody
I am working on cleaning up the underside of my cj5, I have grease, oil and dirt build up that I would like to remove. After doing this I would like to repair any rust areas (whats the best thing to use), then I would like to coat the under side
Probably easier ways but I hand-scraped the muck, cleaned the rest of the grease off with rags and mineral spirits, then wire-wheeled the whole thing. Gave my drill a real work out.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." Supposedly President Coolidge
I am in the process cleaning up my undercarriage, had lots of surface rust, grease and grime buildup. I applied a degreaser, then power wash, now I am using a drill (with a wire wheel attachment) and a grinder with wire wheel and hitting everything from the frame to differentials. After I get all the surface rust off I am thinking about using the KBS rustseal product and painting it.
