Frame rust

Ok so i know theres a lot of threads about this but i thought i just ask again... The other day i noticed a decent amount of rust on the frame on both sides where the skidplate is attached... I can also see the inside is beginning to rust... I want me jeep to last for a very long time and i want this taken care of right away... What are your suggestions for me to do? So far i was looking at rust bullet for the outside and eastwood internal frame coating.. Also what steps do i meed to take becore and after? Thanks!

If thats you worst spot you're lucky. That frame looks to be in great shape for having spent it's life in New Jersey.

Wire wheel the scale off and coat with paint of your choice, rubberized undercoating, waxoyl etc. Whatever works for ya'. Eastwood sells some metal prep products designed to "convert" rust into a phosphate coating. It actually seems to work pretty well based on my experience. Get some of that, hose down the inside of the frame with it, let it do it's job and topcoat with some sort of paint.

Just for comparison, this is what's inside MY frame after roughly the same amount of time:

The inside of your frame wont likely be as bad as mine. What you could do is take a blowgun with an angled extension and jam it into the frame to blow out loose debris.

I took a shopvac and taped a peice of hose to nozzel fished it threw my frame to remove that scale. I was able to get about 99% of the rust scale out and then coated it with eastwood internal frame coating. I coated the outside of the frame with Chassis saver and overall I've been pleased with the results.

Spay the nutserts with penetrating oil for a good couple weeks using the holes in the side of the frame and then heat them up really good and take the T.C. crossmember off and paint thoroughly then reassemble with a liberal amount of anti-seize. Also clean out the body mount rail on the tub and spray that with the eastwoods. That'll surely go next.

I hate salt.
