Ive used the electronic rust products before. Some products have more pads than others, and I would recommend those. Don't know how good they are long term, but seemed to do a good job. We did have a wrangler in the 90's with some rust issues, and found that one of the pads from the rust protection had come loose in the area with rust, you will have to keep an eye on it, and check the pads are making good contact with the body.

You are correct, the tow bar fitted to my Limited is by Best Bars NZ and it has a Mopar sticker and part number on it.

My thinking is that most modern vehicles don't need rust protection due to the type of metal used in manufacture, also I read somewhere that the Jeep body is zinc dipped after welding ( someone may be able to confirm this). As I live by the beach I have had underbody rust / sound deadner applied, this is a tar like substance that protects against stone chips as well. It had been applied to my then new 2002 Nisan Patrol and found it worthwhile, I have done a few beach trips and have never had any rust problems.
Motor One in Brisbane did the application on the Jeep and it was a very neat job, they avoided all the areas that don't need coating like the wiring looms and connections.
Hope this info is of help.

Hi

I had TJM fit a Couplertec heavy duty 4wd electronic rust proofing with 4 pads as my Nissan Patrol rusted from inside rear pillars. They give a guarantee against rust and friends have said that stone chips that exposed metal have not shown any signs of rust. So if this only half true it is just another thing to help protect this fabulous machine.

Hope this helps
