If theres any one who like myslef live in NY or any other place where road salt eats away your jeep before the mud does i have found a way to prevent most if not all damage. Prior to rebuilding my 01 xj i had an 89xj it was in rough shape but i tried to hold it together and undercoated it with rubberised undercoating... simply put it sucked and flaked off through out the first few snow poundings in buffalo. so when i got my 01 xj rebuilt i decided to go about trying some thing new, my problems have been solved by truck n bed liner, it works wonders, much like the rubberised undercoating it protects against salt and water but is much more durable. I undercoated every exposed pice of metal that could be covered and it looks great. good luck to any one who trys it let me kno how it works for u

yeah that rubberized stuff is no good, I use that spray on bedliner every time when i replace a floor panel, and a tube of automotive seam sealer works well with it also.

its really only good to do to a rust free , clean vehicle . if you have rust it just traps it and will make it worse eventually .

you can of course convert and seal the rust . some times it works

well this my second winter with this vehical, last year i put a new floor on the passenger side, from the front floor board to the begining of the rear seat. I cut that floor out and noticed a lot of junk in the frame channel, enough to hold water/ moisture which is not good for a closed in frame.

so I vacuumed that out and let it dry out for a day, then cleaned it to get that extra dust out then sprayed it with bedliner, then i put the new floor in and sprayed it with bedliner, because if you have left a window open when its raining that water will go to the bottom of that rug insulation and stay there, and after a while it will start eating through the floor pan.

and this past month I took the fuel tank out and sure enough the back floor was gone, but only on the sides, the middle was fine where the tank sits. so I put a floor in and sprayed the whole under neith with bedliner before I hooked the tank back up.
so if it lasts me through the winter i'll put a new floor on the drivers side.
