Thought I'd bore you all with the job I was setting up for before my diff decided to play up.
I knew the sills were getting bad but I was hoping to leave them till next summer, no such luck.

Do they throw tons of salt over there? My Jeep was fully undercoated when new.
Salt is such bad news ! Looking much better though.
I often power wash my jeep in winter, to try to keep the rust a bay.
Then spray fluid film, seems to work well on door sills etc.
Next spring I got to do a lot of paint & rust touch ups too!

Yes, they cover the roads with salt all winter, destroys cars. It gets in the structure and rots from the inside out. Yours looks nice and solid, I'm going to clean off the crusty bits, paint then then wax + inject all the bits I can, probably going to take me a few months to complete it as it has to fit in round life!

And a new bit let in, wish the whole car was 2mm, its a joy to weld compared to thin bodywork!
