Fender Rust Pictures

Took some photos of the front fender rust that I've seen on a lot of TJs. It is right above a steel plate in the wheel well that I assume is for rock guard.

I cut out the plate. The foam that was used is porus garbage it just traps water and salt and keeps it in contact with the shoddy steel fender. You wont really see the damage until you cut out the plate and clean up underneath. The extent of mine was much worse than I thought. Looks like surface rust but goes pretty deep.

That spot is the canary in the mineshaft. I had repaired both of mine and then started seeing rust in other spots.
Last year I got fed up and replaced them altogether.

I wouldn't even bother fixing that, I'd just get new primed fenders. I guess Discount Auto parts has them for <$200 primed and the fit is excellent.
