rust? Glad we don't have to deal with it here in Arizona,,
Maybe try sandblasting them , then use "RustOleum" paint?
But anyway, glad to hear your going with the YJ's, you love the flex and ride,,,,if you set them up right.
I just ran a trail Saturday, that I have been on many times, there are places I had to go real slow do to the washouts and bad dips or Whoopty doo's because of two wheel drive rigs digging their way up the hill, but with this setup, I was racing Fred from Canyon State with Geoff Beasley riding with him,,,,anyway, we were able to run full out in 3rd gear!! Quite a rush, after being able to only do it in first before.
I tried to bottom it out ,,but couldn't,,,,hit bumps that should have sent me bouncing around,,,but it didn't. Got to love this setup!
