Hello from southwestern Ontario ! I've owned three other Jeeps over the years ('42 MB, 68 CJ5, 89 YJ) but always wanted a TJ. By the time I got around to it,most of the samples around here had serious rust issues. A guy in Windsor brought in a super cherry '99 Sahara from BC, planning on taking it with him when he moved to Costa Rica. Covid plus the cost of exporting killed that and I bought it on Kijiji. I've added half doors and gambler wheels, but plan to keep it in stock form strictly as a summer cruiser. I envy you western guys !

Welcome to the forum.
Got my 99 Sahara from Eastern Quebec and as "well maintained " as the PO tried, that eastern Canada salt can sure kick a TJ in the guts. "Treated", "Coated" or "Rust -proofed" is not a one-time job in Canada.
Here in Alberta, the road salt from October to March will kill a Jeep (new or not) in a few years too. Once it's in those nooks and crannies, it's almost impossible to get out.
Very nice rig.

Clean out your inner frame and give it a nice coat of Fluid Film, tranny oil, whatever you prefer and it will live longer for you to love.

The fellow I bought this one from spent hours underneath it , cleaning off what surface rust there was, then painting it all chassis black and oiling the crap out of it.

Wish the POs of all mine had...often find them barely greased and only surface washed. Frames don't survive Canadian road salt for long without treatment
