Welcome... I would say that most of your rust issue is from the Jeep being up north and the winter's. There are a couple things you can do. As for the rust, on the chasey, which I will refer to as the frame, you can buy several good products at your local auto parts store to help seal this up. You will want to scrape any large sections first, or get ride of those that are flake like, you may also need to sand it down a bit, then use a cleaner, then apply 2-3 coast of the anti rust stuff.. it will dry black, thenyou can paint over it in black if you wish. should come is sizes from a small bottle and up from there.
As for the busted shock bolt in the frame, couple things you can do, weld it, or drill it out depending on which type it is. Also for any and all new bolts, lug nutz etc you put on/take off, use anti sieze compound, this will help if you ever have to take them off again.
rear diff leak is about standard for your axle and should be a dana 35. Just use a good sealer next time you change the fluid and it should take care of it.
That's all i have for now... I am sure others will chime in and offer more grass roots YJ help.. again welcome!
