Lookin' at a '94 any tips?

Hey y'all. I am looking into buying myself a Wrangler to have as my weekend toy. I am completely new at this, so any tips to look at and for before I buy would be greatly appreciated! There is a 94 that has caught my eye.

Rust, rust , and rust.

Everywhere, main concern area's in the rear frame just above and behind the rear axle. The floorboards and windshield frame.

Check the undercarriage.Check the frame it will save you tons of money,and hard-ache down the road.check for rust, If theirs a lot of it reconsider your options.Try getting the 6cyl one i just think its better.What else.. oh check the floor boards ,when you sit in the car make sure it doesn't feel like your feat can go thru the floor,just lift the carpet or check underneath to make sure its okay.

body mounts,where the mounts attach to the body for rust.

X2 on everything said

But around here they use salt on the roads
so a rust free jeep is almost imposable to find
and if you do they want a mint for it.

Plus if you are going to drive in snow/salt its going to rust

so that said front floors are a easy fix
screw /weld
almost everyone around here has a soft drivers side floor
or fixed

Also there are places on frame you can box/sleeve weld
that will be stronger then the frame.

Sometimes I cant believe the metal they used

But body mounts shackle mounts around gas tank
I wouldnt

Make sure all brake lines are good
