Common rust areas

I know this has probably been covered, but I'm looking to buy a 93 YJ and I know they are prone to rust, especially in certain areas. I would like to know what the specific areas are so I can check them before I decide to buy. Also un-related, but where is the windshield washer reservoir located at. Thanks for any help.

Floor pans rust out. Replace them them use a spray in bed liner and never woody about this area again.

They rust EVERYWHERE! No part is immune. Frames along spring shackles & skid plate. Frame near steering box. Body along rockers, rear corners, floor pans, seat belt mounts, seat mounts, front fenders, windshield frames, door bottoms. Start there and then look for unseen areas! 'nuff said!

Windshield res. is inside lf fender.

Beer Belly is correct. Anywhere is a possibility, but he mentioned all the more prone places.
