one thing I absolutely love about older jeeps is that you can bolt on parts from better jeeps.

Haven’t done much to it , I replaced the two piece sunroof trim with a one piece rubber piece from a newer wj from the junkyard

Then this is the newer style one piece seal

Since I had bought the Jeep , one thing that bothered me was the way the door panels fit,. I ordered some new clips from eBay and all is good now :banana:

Now what I have to do now, 

i still need to: 

-address the rear pinion seal seepage (sigh) 

-Fix the leaking trans cooler hose (easy) 

- Check if it’s the weep hole that’s leaking from the water pump, or if it’s just the lower radiator hose that’s seeping 

-unclog the hvac drain tube 

         I just detailer her yesterday , and man , it cleans up really good , had to wax that nice blue finish.

:furious3:Sigh..... one of the po’s left this gift for me. Sad thing is I don’t think it wouldn’t of gotten like this If they wouldn’t of filled the inside of the rocker with spray foam 

seems like this wj is originally from Detroit 

despite this , she isn’t going anywhere , we enjoy her to much to ever let her go...that and the amount of work I’ve put into it at this point 

   Good thing is they don’t salt Roads in Vegas :D

Hey Pete What would a be a good way to repair this ? We rarely see rust in Vegas. So I have zero experience with this.

you should talk to them and see what they say since they would be the one doing the work. :L:  living where you live should provide ample opportunities for clean junkyard rockers.  :grinyes:

Sounds good , I plan on talking to them about it today. I really don’t want to push this back. Despite this little spot this wj is incredibly clean. It’s odd that this is the only spot of rust on the car. Maybe someone at one point took good care of it and all it took was for someone else to let it go. 
thanks for the advice Pete. :L:

rockers rot from the inside-out so even if they religiously washed the Jeep, salt could get trapped inside. :(
