How much rust is too much?
 
Looking to buy a 2003 Wrangler with 17K miles. Topside looks great but losts of rust underneath. Driveshafts, wheel spindles/knuckles, and steering linkage has thick rust which comes off in chunks. Seller says this is normal, but I have an 03 truck with 180K miles and it does not have this much rust. You opinion/suggestions please! Thanks! (Pics here)

For me anything more than surface rust is TO MUCH and a deal killer

As stated above, anything beyond surface rust, I consider bad. That is beyond surface rust is my opinion. But, the frame shown does not look rusty.

I can send you photos of my 03 and it looks nothing like that. Some of that rust is real bad. How much is he asking not that it really matters.

the rust your seeing is all easily replaced and much of it should be replaced when buying new anyway and by the looks of it none of it is structural. if its a good deal i would go for it, nothin a little por15 cant fix
