    The tubes on my Jeep are really starting to rust and I want to get rid of them. I'm gonna ask my mechanic to remove them next time her has it up on the lift, but I'm wondering if anything needs to be done once removed, to prevent rust or rot.

    Easy to remove, just unbolt and then touch up on the frame rails where they were bolted on

    Do the bolts just go right back into the holes?
