Jeep floor pan help

The floor pans on my TJ have some holes that need patched but when I look through them, I can see a second layer of rusty metal about 2 inches below the floor pans on both driver side and passenger side. What is this second layer underneath? Is there a way that I can repair both the floor pan and whatever layer is under it? It doesn't make much sense to bedline the floor pans if water can just get it from the bottom. Any help is appreciated!

That is where the body mounts bolt into and is open at both ends. Best thing you can do every once in a while is stick a pressure washer in there and blow any dirt or mud out. From a perspective of the road salt on your boots when getting in the jeep bedline the floor and cleanup any surface rust in the channel. I ended up putting a buttload of POR15 in there.

Thanks! I'll give that a shot

If it is that bad, you may want to look at seeing if your bodymounts are bad as well. If you can look down the channel you might be able to spray a penetrant down. If you are looking at doing a body lift, take this opportunity as you might be able to loosen them up ahead of time and put some antiseize on them. Just be aware if they are really bad ( I did mine about 4-5 years ago and remember reading 98s at that time breaking and spinning bolts) you may bite off more than you can chew.
