rust on a vehicle as early as a few years old is not uncommon, most auto makers the past few years have used good rust repelent paint that allows cars to last longer however if you have rust on your car and you think its too early for that type of wear you may wanna take a few things into consideration, if you live in a coastal area, or live in a place that snows a great deal, you may be dealing with the salt content, salt is not good for steal parts, especially door panels and fenders, if your Jeep is rusting in a place you dont thing it should be doing that maybe you are experienceing build up of salt in that area. also pin holes made by rocks can sometimes chip your paint job enough to start little ares where rust can begin.

How do you open 1987 plymoth reliant tailgate?

To open the tailgate you have to use the key in the tailgate lock. If it is like mine, it does not always release immediately and you just need to push on the tailgate while the key is turned. You should be able to hear the latch release and then you just lift the tailgate up. If the shock absorbers for it are worn out it will be a slow hard lift to get it to open completely. l
