    Hi everyone. As you can tell I am new. Well, last weekend I visited my grandparents and found out my grandpa had a 1988 wrangler in his barn. It's got 89k miles on it and still runs great. I took it for a spin around the farm and fell in love. The best part is that my grandpa said that if I love it that much, I should just keep it. You gotta love grandparents!!! Now I can't get enough of it, the only major problem is that it has ALOT!!! of rust on it. Can any one suggest ways to go about fixing this. A friend of mine told me that you could get fiberglass panels and what not and replace the body. I hope you folks can give me some advice. Thanks

            I know that JCwhitney has replacement body parts in both metal and fiberglass. How bad is the rust? Post some pics. I was given an 89 wrangler that had sat outside for at least 5 years, it rusted, sank into the wet ground, had grass and weeds growing all the way from the ground up through the frame and body, and had grown a mossy green moldy stuff all over one side. Anyway, most of the rust can be fixed without replacing the entire body panels.
