Hi, this is my first time posting, this forum has been really helpful.
I recently bought a 2010 FJ and I am very excited to work on it and I will need your help on this journey.

I live in New Jersey and rust is a big problem here.
I'm looking to remove rust and prevent it.
Please suggest a product or method that will help me.

Thank you in advance

I have had good luck with Fluid Film. You can spray it over existing surface rust and it will prevent further oxidization (rust). Just do a quick wire brush to get the loose stuff off. There are several threads about this here.

I got Corroseal (available on amazon) to address the rust on mine, it goes on with a brush and cleans up with water. You don't need to paint over it. But any kind of rust converter will work and stop rust.

I also got EastWood's inner frame coating which is a sprayable rust converter meant to saturate the inside of the frame, stop the rust and protect it with a zinc coating when it cures.

A needle scaler is very good recommendation. I've been using a welding hammer to remove the surface rust that built up under the undercoating on mine.

My frame was in really good condition. I passed on few purchases..including a 2014 UTTE because of rust. I ended up cleaning the frame and spraying it with Cosmoline RP 342. Search for that on Youtube. You'll find plenty of info.
I'm satisfied with the results

Cosmoline??? Now you'll need to bake it in an oven before you can shoot it! :)
