Hello! I have a 2018 Sahara- my door hinges are rusting! Does anyone have any tips on how to stop / get rid of it?

Take the doors off, clean and lube the hinge pins with a water proof grease, reassemble. You can clean the rust stains off with ScotchBrite and clear coat them before you put doors back on

That's not the hinges themselves. It's the cheap liners within the hinges. They go bad and corrode over time. Remove the doors and replace the liners with these:

You could also use these. They worked great for me.
