2016 JK, will WD40 stop rust ? Have any of you replaced your door pins ?
My 2016 Wrangler has been on a lot of trails. I'm not sure if parking on the Navy Base where I work or all the flooded trails I've forded through has led to the rear bumper mount bolts, and the front bumper mount bolts to rust. Also some rust on the door hinge .. looks like from the door hinge pin. I sprayed WD40 on the bolts, took a towel to them to clean them up a bit, then soaked it with WD40.
It looks like the door hinge pins are not stainless steel. It appears that the rust color on the door hinge is from rust from the door pin.
I figured if I can clean up the hinge with some rubbing compound then next time I take the doors off I'll replace the door pins with a stainless steel door pin kit.
