Purchasing a used JK

I am looking to purchase a used JK unlimited. I have only owned YJ's and now have a family and love the look of the 4 doors. Can anyone give me any pointers as to what to look for. I have heard that the doors are a bad spot for rust. Anything will help. Thank you

check the front suspension. When I bought my 07 with 60k miles the ball joints quickly went out and the front trackbar mount was wallowed out. Not the end of the world but a pain to fix.
