Rust on 2011 Sahara

Found this at a local car lot. Is this too much rust for a 3 year old JKU in eastern Iowa? Thanks in advance.

The axles and driveline rust. If they are not under coated. And even of they are they will. . It's normal.

I'm guessing salt water too. Either that, or they salt the roads heavily in Iowa and they PO never washed his jeep. Either way, my 01 TJ has no rust on it anywhere. I guess that's the upside to living in the hot N. TX climate.

Step 1. Clean bottom
Step 2. Sand rusted areas/ replace smaller items with new ones
Step 3. coat everything with under coating
