  1. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I’m having some rust on my 96 grand Cherokee, and would like to know what to even call this section. It’s under the front passenger, next to the control arm. Looks like a metal box welded up as if it’s a support for the unibody. I want to repair anything I can, I just don’t really know how. Is...
  2. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I have been desperately holding on to my 1998 ZJ for many years now. It has been sitting (other than a monthly driving around the block to keep it alive) since 2019 , when it was deemed un-roadworthy in terms or rust. This week, my apartment complex had to pave, so I have had to move it several...
  3. Indiana Jeep Forum
    I recently purchased a 2013 Sahara Unlimited with 110,000 miles I paid top value for it from a dealer because I wanted a solid vehicle I could drive for several years or more 3 months in and I’ve had some catastrophe. The dealer didn’t fix the parking brake like promised, so I have it at...
  4. Paint and Body
    Hello guys, My XJ has some spots of rust which had been covered by a previous owner but are coming back through. It is worth taking everything above the gutters back to metal and rust converting and then painting? Or is there a better alternative? Please let me know
  5. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I imagine there has to be someone out there who has ripped floorboards out of an XJ and welded new ones on entirely. If you're that person, I would love to hear how you went about it. My 92' XJ has been subject to horrible rust, the only thing intact is the frames rails, meanwhile, the majority...
  6. Jeep Buying Forum
    Hola all- been looking into joining the Jeep Wrangler family to have a summer car. Make good money but like most millennial - student debt out the ***. Was looking at wranglers under 6K in NJ which was a farce - every single one had tons of issues. I increased my budget to 10K at this point and...
  7. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hello All, currently I have a 17 Cherokee Trailhawk and have been looking at new and used Wranglers. I live just north of Green Bay, WI. In my research, I've come up with some questions that I hope you all can help me with. And, some of these questions may answer themselves. 1. WI Driving...
  8. Jeep CJ Forum
    I have a Scrambler stripped down ready to stick a 304 motor and transmission from a 1979 CJ7. Where would you start a budget rebuild. All electrical is gutted to the outside of firewall and ready to start over. Brakes have not had fluid for 25 years and master is dry, lines to front axle have...
  9. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I recently upgraded my TJ steering to heavy duty Moog parts from a Grand Cherokee. After only about a month on, they are rusting like crazy. Never had this issue with the original components. Although I am in the salt crazed Midwest, I wash it religiously. So that is not the issue. Any...
  10. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I live in New England, so the frame has a lot of rust. I was hoping it wouldn't be rotting out, but it's gotten to that point. Today I noticed this in the frame on the driver's side and it looks really bad, so I'm not driving it anymore. Is my Jeep completely f'd at this point?
  11. Jeep Buying Forum
    MooHello, I found a 1995 YJ and I was able to talk the guy down to 2,500 due to the fact that the syncros were going bad and it had rust on everything BUT the body... I looking at buying it as a toy to work on and play in. Is it worth it? I think its the syncros because it slightly grinds into...
  12. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hey, I recently bought a 2005 Tj and found the locking mechanism is rusted shut on the passenger door. Any ideas on how to get the door off so I can take a look/replace the mechanism inside? Thanks in advance, Colin
  13. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    I just bought an '06 WK. Overall it is in good shape, but I found that the front of my driver side rocker panel is severely rusted to the point that it 'was' barely holding the clip for the rocker guard. Are there any reasonable ways to replace the panel altogether? Any input would be great!
  14. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hello All, It's been a while since I've had time to work on my 1993 5.2 ZJ, but recently I've gotten around to it. I've observed some rust spots on the Jeep (some newer, some old). As far as I know this used to be a Texas Jeep prior to arriving in Colorado. The paint job is nothing to write...
  15. Wanted
    Hey all, Looking to see if anyone's got a wrecked ZJ with a good passenger side unibody rail. I got some rot I want to get rid of right behind the lower control arm mount. I would prefer to cut the old section out and weld in the new section, sort of like a swap with minimal fabrication. I...
  16. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I was poking around my '99 TJ the other day and decided to stick my finger in the frame to check for rust, a decision I kind of regret now. I felt some bubbling so I decided to pick up one of those retriever magnets and start running it inside the frame. The image below is what I dug out of both...
  17. Jeep Buying Forum
    Hello All - I am looking at a friends Wrangler to purchase and it is a 2008 Wrangler with 70k miles. I am on the west coast but the car has spent much of its time in the Midwest and has some rust underneath on the frame rails, exhaust and suspension components. I have attached a couple of...
  18. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So recently i've acquired a flame red jeep tj with some minor *cough cough*:laugh: major rust on the fenders, the back hatch tailgate, and the window frame, can anyone direct me to where I can get these. i want the tj to stay with the stock look so no tube fenders or anything.
  19. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    New to this forum, guys. Looking for some advice on a rusty frame. I don't have time or the patience for a frame swap, but my jeep has gotten to the point where I need to do something about it. Center driver rail and rear trail arm areas are rotted to hell. Was looking on the interwebs and found...
  20. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hey Guys, I have a 2004 TJ that's spent it's life in the north. Over the last few years a rust spot's been developing on the tub just under/behind the driver door, never paid much attention to it but lately its been getting pretty bad. Today I was looking at it closely to see what I can do...
