You can always swap the rear axle out for something better. Rust can be fixed. Lots of info and pics on this site about that stuff and more. Lurk around and you will find just about anything you want to know. The majority of the people on here are really nice and don't mind answering any questions you have.

I have learned a lot on here about my Jeep and how to repair stuff on it or upgrade it. Welcome to the forum.

Looks like a good time to do the rock slider mod and just cut the whole rocker panels out and weld in some square tube sliders. I have run across a couple write up's on that. They look good when they are done.

If I find the thread I will post the link for you. Don't have time to look right now. Gotta go to work

Well the good news is I got the floors wrapped up! Bad news is I tried to get a sticker and the tranny was throwing a code I think its for the nss but I will have to check. Also i went to a trail near my house and on the way home she would hesitate and bog under 1.5k I'm going to do plugs and wires to see if that fixes it.
