How bad is This??
The last time I took my Jeep to the mechanic and they put my Jeep on the lift, I noticed my Jeep had alot of Rust on the bottom part. I know this area is hardly ever seen by anyone else, but since rust eats away metal, I was wondering how bad is Rust under a Car? And is there anyway I can fix this?

rust on the frame and suspension parts seems normal, personally, I spend time cleaning it up and painting to keep it in check.

rust on the body of the jeep is not good and not typical from what i've read. even surface rust on the body should be cleaned up and painted in my opinion.

I've just finished my 'paint all the bits you can't see' project.

The underneath was surprisingly clean, but I broke out some hammerite paint and got to work. Looks good and will protect for years:thumbsup:

Yea Im not to concerned about how it looks because it's under the body, I mean who is really gonna look under there, except the mechanic and me. I was just more concerned that the rust might corrode major parts under the car costing me money in the future for repairs or work itself up to the body and start eating it away, but if It will never get that serious then I guess it isn't really a serious issue to deal with.

Im in the process of a project to clean it up and paint the whole underside with spray on bed liner.
