Stop Tj fender rust!

I just got a new to me tj and its in pretty good condition and i would like to keep it that way. It has no fender rust in the normal spot so how can i make it stay that way. Should i take off those little plates under the fender that catch all the stuff and make it rust or what? any help is appreciated.
Thank you

Clean the underside of it REALLY well, then spray/paint it with POR-15 or a bedlining product. That should help out immensely against rust.

When I bought my jeep last summer, I thought I only had surface rust (which I have repaired before of different vehicles). This winter I checked it out further as it was gonna be a spring project, and it was worse then I thought. I ended up using my tax refund to have a local bodyman patch weld, prime/paint/clearcoat both my fenders and undercoat them with bedliner. Turned out a close match for the paint and cost me 400$ where as to have two new replacement fenders (shipped to my location) plus the paint job would of been close to 1K.
