Re: No much rust for a 2002???

Looks pretty normal to me but i live in Michigan and get some pretty salty roads. I see you live in Colorado so Im guessing you get the same thing. Also the Jeep is over 10 years old remember that lol

Re: No much rust for a 2002???

The rust formation is quite normal for the age. I would just put some protection on the engine oil pan, which seems to be corroded at the forward side. Keep an eye on the engine mounts, the one close to the thermostat housing, the rubber is partly cracked. Not that bad yet.

Re: No much rust for a 2002???

The only thing I see that's concerning at all is the oil pan like Frango pointed out. I'd look to replace that at some point in the near future.

Re: No much rust for a 2002???

Like they said nothing thats too concerning. Suspension, motor and tranny mounts, drivelines thats really normal. They are made of a hard and thick enough steel that they will take a very long time and lots of abuse to rust to the point of breaking. Main things to worry about are the thinner steel parts. Such as the oil pan, tranny pan and body parts. If you are really worried about it give a good coat of POR-15 to everything.

Re: No much rust for a 2002???

The majority of that is surface rust, just clean it all up. You can paint the parts or coat it in something like rhino liner to help protect against the winter salt and that oh so great road de-icing crap that they love to put on the roads.

Steel brush and apply some POR-15 over any vulnerable areas like lower rockers and cross beams and spot welds, including the oil pans. Then you can check annually and touch up any chips.
