Rusty Drive Shaft?

So any ways I was under my car today washing the undercarriage when I noticed the drive shaft and the U joints looked liked it had surface rust on them. Should this alarm me or what? How long should I expect this to last? I have an 04 Tj sport with 69000 miles on it.

There is no type of rust proofing on those parts. Surface rust on them is not an issue.
