    I have a 1995 Jeep Sahara (low mileage 90K) that's is need of a total rehab. There is a lot of underbody rust and many spots of body rust. I would rather invest in a total reconditioning than buy a new jeep. I cannot find anyone within the Detroit area that specializes in Older Jeep rehabs. any ideas?

    You know it won't be cheap. Your probably looking at $6-7k to pull the body and repair all of the rust and repaint. Providing it is all mechanically sound and you just want it looking new with all body rust fixed, new top new interior I would guess you would be in it for around $10-12k. May be a little more. And it would be in the shop for at least 6mo. I'm doing this to my YJ right now and it has taken me a year this July, and Hopefully I will be done by the end of July. I have had a couple of mechanical things to fix as well.

    Take pictures as the work is being done and start a build thread. I love to see other peoples work.
