suggestions for DIY rust removal tools

I need to get under my jeep and start cleaning off rust from different parts under there. Not looking to do a show room restore and it will be done in my driveway without air tools. I have a dremel and a decent cordless drill. I have a few different wire brushes, wire wheels etc. Any specific products anyone suggests? Also what would be a decent spray primer and paint to use after the rust is removed?

This is my Signature

I usually wire brush and/or wire wheel the rust off; then I hit it with rustoleum rust converter. Let that do it's thing for at least 24 hours; then cover with rustoleum satin black, followed by some satin clear. No primer needed, the converter creates a good surface for the paint to adhere to - though I suppose if you wanted to prime, I would go with a bonding primer.

I typically do this in later fall, before winter (just clean up all the rock scrapes and what not); and then check again in spring after winter breaks (stupid road salt!).

Looks like that might do the same thing, but to be specific, this is typically what I use:

the stuff mvjeeper posted looks like the stuff that sprays on clear and turns black. I haven't had much luck with stuff like that. I have used the stuff Rattler posted also and have had much better luck with it

Yeah, it sprays on then turns black but it works. I would wire wheel to shiny metal then spray the extend on.

I used POR-15 on my fairly rusty M100 trailer tub & frame, then hit it with rattle-can flat green.

To remove some of the bigger rust areas I used wire wheels and flapper wheels. I bought some gel rust reversal solution but never used it as the POR-15 was a complete "trunk and floorboard kit"
